Monday Mishmash 5/1/17


Happy Monday! Monday Mishmash is a weekly meme dedicated to sharing what's on your mind. Feel free to grab the button and post your own Mishmash.

Here's what's on my mind today:
  1. Drafting  I'm finishing up a draft today. At least that's the plan. Wish me luck, please.
  2. Publishing craziness   Last week I realized I'm releasing 8 books this year. I've officially lost my mind. I'll be curled up in a ball by December. 
  3. Editing  I'm editing for a client this week. Nothing new there. This month is pretty packed with client edits.
  4. Blogging schedule  I'm going to be throwing my old schedule out the window. Monday Mishmash will stay, but Writer Wednesdays will only occur when I have something to say. I've been struggling for topics. Feel free to suggest some. My Friday Feature posts haven't been getting many views, so I'm cutting them out of my schedule for a while.
  5. How on earth is it May already?  When did that happen? I swear it was just February. This year is going by way too quickly.
That's it for me. What's on your mind today?

  1. Eight books? Oh my heavens, girl! I don't know whether to say congratulations or send you a respite package. You amaze me. I am lucky to be able to stick to my 200 word a day goal, and you often write 10k. Thank you for keeping Monday Mishmash, and I will try to come up with a few ideas for later Writer Wednesdays. You are such an inspiration!

    1. Thanks, Sherry. I'm trying something new, and that dictates a tough schedule. I just hope I can survive it. LOL

  2. Hi Kelly - well done and good luck with all the work - being busy is good news. I will almost certainly go back to once a week blogging - but as and when ...and I need to settle to do a few things ... I know the years just disappear don't they ... thanks for your visit ... see you around - cheers Hilary

  3. Oh my gosh! 8 books, one year are you THE FLASH? So we'll get a bit of your writing life on our Monday's. Best fun ever.

  4. Releasing 8 books in a year sounds amazing! What's the average length, if you don't mind me asking?

    Good luck with the draft!

    1. Only one is a novella. The others are all full-length novels. Eek! I have to revise two releasing late this year, and then write two that will be out early next year. I need a clone!

  5. I don't blame you...I used to post M, W, and F--PLUS Tuesday if there was a book release. Now I do my Mystery Mondays and I post on Wednesday ONLY if I have an idea for a topic. I rarely post on Friday now except during October, when I post a ghost story every Friday. There really is no benefit to posting more often. The goal is to interact and read other blogs so people will read ours, I feel, so I'd rather spend more time doing that!

  6. 8 books? Congratulations. And good luck with your draft too.
    I used to post M, W, F but couldn't keep up and it became harder to find topics to blog about. So then I decided to post twice a week and now I only post once on Mondays. It's a blogging schedule that works best for me.
    On my mind today, I still can't believe I completed the 30 poems in 30 days challenge for National Poetry Month. And by the skin of my teeth too with 12 minutes to midnight.��

  7. Wow, good luck with all the new releases. I guess just focus on one at a time. :-)

  8. Hey Kelly,

    I hope your drafting went well! =-) Yes, I totally agree... I can't believe how fast time is flying, yikes! Hope you'll get a chance to slow down at some point.

  9. I've been off the net for almost two weeks, but had to come back to your Monday for a kick-start of productivity and back to my regular life. May Day, indeed!

  10. I wondered when I didn't say a Wednesday post, but good for you on cutting down. With 8 releases this year, you totally need to be taking the blogging pace that works for you.

    1. It felt so weird not posting, but I'm so busy right now. I have to get these books taken care of first. Monday Mishmash is here to stay though. I love this post.
