Steve’s Update 7/10/2017

(This column is posted at,, and Steve’s Tumblr)

It’s my weekly Scrum style standup for my audience – and I forgot last weeks with the holiday.  It got a bit crazy, but in a good way.  So let’s get back to it!

First of all goals for this sprint, July:

  • Publish Way With Worlds Minibook #2: This’ll be on Magic and Technology.
  • Write more of “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:” I’m starting to pace myself by writing scenes, with so many scenes (8-9) roughly equalling a chapter.  My goal this month is to write about 18 scenes, or roughly two chapters (as of this status, I actually wrote about 8-10 as I got on a roll).
  • Lots of social stuff this month too – and next month.  Man at this rate I need a vacation from my relaxing . . .
  • I’m trying to do more fun stuff on my social media and Tumblr with memes and challenges.

So what have I done the last week?

  • Way With Worlds Minibook #1: Out, published, and selling!  Enjoy!
  • Way With Worlds Minibook #2: Just started editing this, and finished the cover!
  • Way With Worlds Minibook #6: Taking a break from this right now.  I’ve written a few too much of these.
  • “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet”: Chapters #1 and #2 are out, and #3 is almost finished.  I need pre-readers so feel free to volunteer!
  • Blogging: Just general blogging.  You’ve seen it already!
  • Other: Not much else to be blunt, lots of chores and catchup and a few other things.

What am I going to do this week:

  • Way With Worlds Minibook #2: I’m going to finish editing and get it ready for publications.
  • “A Bridge To The Quiet Planet:” Finish Chapter #3 and some more scenes.
  • Writing: More blog posts as usual!  I am debating putting my writing posts on Seventh Sanctum as well.
  • Send more Way With Worlds books to my editor.


  • Feeling a bit overloaded to be honest, and not sure why.  I’m going to keep an eye on my workload.  I also want to do more fun things and not overdo it – like my latest Overwatch Memes.  I also have an unfinished generator . . .
