I had a lot of overtime at work and have been extra involved in my Bright Line Eating program, so here I am on August 2, knowing that this short time while my laundry is in the washer is all I really have to write before the post is due on Wednesday. So, this one is even quicker than last month’s, and doesn’t have all the bells and whistles I usually like to have. Luckily, I can copy a lot of it from the previous post and the IWSG sign up page.
As for writing, my July Camp NaNo goal was to analyze the book The Firm by John Grisham. I did not finish, but I got over half-way, and have had a lot of great moments of understanding that I will be able to use in my book once I get back to revising it.
So, that is the first plan for August. If I finish that before the end of the month, I plan to go back to finishing up all the covers for the Hazel Kanetzki short story so I can get feedback on them. So August is looking to be very much a “loose ends” kind of month, and I hope I can get it all done by September, so I can get on to something new. But we will see.
I also have decided to forego traditional publication of my Tarot series, so expect to see those begin to pop up here again, starting with a re-post of 0 – The Fool for the October Storytime Blog Hop. That one will always be available for free on my website. The others will be available for free at first, but then removed over time. I have not yet decided whether to leave them up until I publish the first collection (which will be the Major Arcana) or to take each one down as soon as the next one goes up.
With that, here are the important links for the Insecure Writers’ Support Group! May you all have a wonderful month!

Are you considering publishing the Tarot series on Amazon? You can make them free if you wish. That way, more people could be exposed to your writing.
Yes, I am planning on publishing them on Amazon. I have a lot of ideas actually. I was originally going to try publishing them individually traditionally and then make collections out of them to self-publish, obviously making sure rights reverted or only selling First rights or something. But I sent II – The Priestess out about a year ago and have completely forgotten about it and the rest of the series due to “waiting”, and as a result, nothing is happening. As much as being official and having the extra money would be nice, I think it is hampering my motivation, so that’s why I decided to just go ahead and put them on my website. I also participate in a Storytime Blog Hop, and never seem to have a story, but I have all these Tarot stories (I am up to 11 now, I think) that I could use, and it would give me more motivation to keep writing them.

You certainly have a lot going on! Some months are just the little details.
