I've been catching up on a range of things and yes, now with everything set out in lists (yes, I AM a list person), I can see in regards to my other project work what I have to do.
Which brings me to starting a list for my writing and editing. It's short because if I was to list everything I wanted to do for my writing, I would put myself off, and it will just stay on the list, and nothing will get done.
At the moment I have five writing projects on this list.
- editing of HD. Yes, the BIG checking on focus of the story. But it's right now I'm looking at chapter two and the prologue. I don't want to think about the rest.
- A short story I wrote in 2000 and haven't really looked at since. It's for an anthology.
- GTH novella - submitting.
- Making notes for Warder 2
- Read over Shadow Tale.
There are also a couple of things like - get ITIN, and do a recording for a podcast due in a couple of weeks. So, as you can see, this list will keep me busy for a bit.
The list probably looks familiar. It was in my November monthly goals. As you can see that didn't work out. And I've come to realise that I don't have deadlines other than the short story which is due in April. So while I don't have deadlines, I'll work at my pace. Oh, I'm good with deadlines, but not self imposed ones. If I was to have deadlines because it was expected from a publisher, yep, I'd work with them to get the job done. I don't know why my brain works that way, but it does. :))
I hope next time I have an update that I would have progressed with each project.
Time will tell. Wish me luck!
