I’m a few days late with this post but – feel free to skip this paragraph if you don’t care why ;p – considering Cyclone Debbie hit our area, first blocking the road south to the funeral we were supposed to go to on Friday (we’d already driven halfway there before the roads flooded), then causing the evacuation of the area the funeral was being held, resulting in rescheduling the funeral. So we drove back home to enjoy my birthday and go to my writers group, then drove back down today for the rescheduled event, and all the way back too. You can imagine blogging has been the least of my worries these last few days ;p
So to wrap up March, I:
- With a new 19,000 words, finished the first draft of ‘Skeleton Romance’. The draft is 64,000 words total – and yet I’m still no closer to a real title, maybe in edits?
- Got a good start on Light In The Deep, an extra 3,200 words
- Also wrote 17 writing prompts for Vision (I felt inspired to be inspiring ;p )
All up I wrote 22,000 words in March. I hit all my goals except the coming up with an actual title for ‘Skeleton Romance’, and did some work on my stretch goal too (for the first time in months ;p ), I’m pretty chuffed with those results.
For my April goals I plan to:
- Help promote the release of the anthology WARRIOR from Ink & Locket Press which contains my latest short story: Glass Bones
- Use the beta reader feedback on Glass Slippers to revise it
- Use my critique group’s feedback over the last several months to revise Charming Rivals
- Begin the first draft of Nothing Charming
- Finish the first draft of Light In The Deep
- Do a bunch of research on tension, including reading some good books (fiction and non-fiction) to help me with that
And for my stretch goal:
- Use the editor’s feedback on Mudgerwokee to complete it and return to her (well before the July deadline)
So lots of revision this month, but still some fresh words for first drafts planned too. I might be being a bit over ambitious, but there’s so much I want to work on NOW that I can’t wait ;p
