I survived the radio show!
Betcha didn't know how terrified I was beforehand. That's why I didn't tell many people about it. I actually thought about cancelling due to severe anxiety attack, but it all worked out in the end.
One of the questions? "How do you deal with fame as an author?"
I did my best to answer that, but I'm still not sure they weren't joking. Me? Bwahahaha.
Thanks to everyone who called in or listened to support me. I can't thank you enough, although before hand I would have begged you not to be present at my imminent humiliation.
Ok, enough of that. It's Wednesday, the ROW80 midweek update, and I have some accountability to report:
1. Word count: somewhere in the neighborhood of 2500. I wound up finishing a short story for anthology I got invited to do this spring, and that knocks out one of my WIP goals too! Now if I can just make that much progress on everything else...
2. Books: I read Cinder by Marissa Meyer. I liked it- not the bestest, but good. Thinking of picking up The Scorpio Races by Maggie Steifvater next.
3. Responses to fellow ROW80ers: I still have four out of five of these to do. Bad me! But the week's not over, so there's time.
4. I have a mountain of editing still to do. I may have to sacrifice an entire writing day to catch up on this, which will make me very cranky. On the upside, I have managed to write something everyday this week.
5. I'll combine these, because they pretty much all have to do with the IBC, but I did my duty by Twitter, and my guest post is still up. It's about my 1 yr Indieversary, which you can read about here: http://indiebookcollective.wordpress.com/2012/01/09/vicki-keire-indieversary/
6. Really excited about the book coming out. I've given out several several eARCS and can't wait to see what people think!!! Excitement abounds at the Keire household.
I think that's it, but I also feel like I'm forgetting something. Tune in Friday when I start my new post themed "Tales From Small Town Bohemia," where I explore how to survive with your creative spirit intact in a small, conservative Southern town. (Hint: it involves flowy skirts and graveyards, among other things). Also, my family is a bigger part of this one, because hey, all us creative spirits flock together and reproduce in order to better program the future...
You know what? Never mind where I was going with that. I'll just see you on Friday, if you feel like stopping by. Until then, best wishes and good books! -V
