I’ve got a lot of work to do in the next four months. I’ve loosely mapped out my schedule through the end of March, and it’s going to be a crazy fun time!
First up, my number one priority was to finish expanding the short story I mentioned back in Sept. into a short novella. I was aiming for 20K and hit it right on the nose! This is one of the projects I worked on for NaNoWriMo. I spent this week on revisions, and tonight I wrote a very short synopsis. (Hey, the whole story is only 20K so it doesn’t need more than a page or two of synopsis.) I really like this story, but we shall see. It’s risky.
Now on my list for Dec, I need to decide what to do about the other novella I’m working on. It’s not coming together like I want, so either I need to do more plotting or I don’t have a solid enough character. Something. I’ll read what I have for the next few days and make a decision about what to do.
This next week, I’ll also be working on editor revisions to Lady Doctor Wyre, and since I’ll be working in that world, I’ll make notes and plot out what I want to do for the freebie prequel I’ll be giving away in March. Can’t get started too early on that. I’ll also be making some notes about another possible Lady Wyre novella, which oddly enough, has some research material in common with the short novella I just finished.
I love happy coincidences.
I won’t share the rest of my to-do list right now. It’s pretty scary. Just know that Vicki revisions are on the horizon too. I’m itching to get it out to a few readers to see what you think! Dec/Jan will include lots of revisions and submissions! Yay! (Which is exactly why I needed to finish those projects for NaNoWriMo instead of starting a brand new one.)
So what are you hoping to work on this month? Don’t wait until the New Year to make some goals!
