Whoa, can you believe it’s June already?
After a hard push in May, this month I plan to take it a little easier. I’m thinking about some giveaways this month for Beautiful Death’s release, tentatively slated for 6/15. I plan to read a LOT, both published and beta reads for Jess and Krista (finish that book, woman!).
Writing wise, I still have several things to do. My FIRST priority is polishing Road. Right now, it’s sitting at 110.7K. I’m making one more read through, and then I’ll send it to those who indicated they wanted to beta read. I’ll make at least two more passes of edits in a couple of weeks, with plenty of time to polish before submitting early July.
Otherwise, the month is open. I don’t plan on doing anything too strenuous after slamming through May. I may take that alien goth story and see if I can polish it up and either give it away as is or make notes on how to expand it to novella length. I may pull out either RHP or NSR for some worldbuilding, plotting notes and decide on which project to tackle for later in the year. And of course, I could always decide to work on Letters. I just don’t know right now. I have all month to make a decision.
In the back of my mind, I’ll also be percolating a new Keldari idea for development this fall into a 20-30K novella to bundle with the other two. I have an idea; it just needs time to expand.
So that’s the plan for June. The year is almost half over. Are you happy with where you are in your goals?
