Remember those aggressive goals for this month? Are you wondering how I’m doing?
get an overdue story to the editor (who kindly allowed me a few grace days)– decided, reluctantly, to let this one go. Among other reasons, the story was insisting on becoming a novella. So now I have an erotic steampunk novella to write at some point! get everything done for Out of the Frying Pan and back to Teresa– DONE! We have a confab tomorrow to plan the next steps. do the edits/rewrites for Waking the Witch and get them to the editor who requested them– to be printed and mailed tomorrow!
- write a story for the Mountain Magic anthology – some brainstorming done; this is next on the To Do list
write a story for the Crossed Genres anthology– after some consideration, decided to let this one go, too. A balance of research time vs potential payment…and in the end, novel work won out.
- prep “In Her Hands” for Kindle, etc. (if time) – in progress
The upshoot? I’m on track and on target. I’ve adjusted a few things here and there, but flexibility is part of the program.
Also? Loving Llyfr. File transfer between computers is so much faster—previously, I couldn’t use my laptop to open a file on Arianbach (main computer) and actually work on it. Now, happy joy.
Life-wise…not much to report. I worked all weekend, not being in the household that camped out this weekend, even though I’m friends with most of them. Ken won his rally (Yay, Ken!). I went to the LARA meeting and out to lunch with Christine (at Versailles, natch!). I made lunch dates with two friends for this week, and will be making a couple of writing dates as well.
Onwards! Or as Jason and Grant say, on to the next!
