It’s been a while since I mentioned anything to do with my own writing and I guess you’re wondering what’s going on.
As I reported a week or so ago, I’ve finished the rewrite of Book 1 in my triology and that has been sent off to the editor for a work over. I don’t expect to get anything back for a few weeks, at least, perhaps even longer. I know he’s extremely busy at the moment.
There are other projects I could go on with but May is a busy month where the 2005 anthology is concerned. The first workshop is in progress and I have four stories to read and crit by the end of the month. This doesn’t sound difficult but I’m a very slow reader and I want to give a detailed crit, so it does take many hours to do each crit each week.
What will I do when I’ve done them?
There are several options:
1) Work on my Sam novel. This is a young adult fantasy novel.
2) Continue with the collaborative novel. Chapter 20 has been completed, which is a stones throw from the climax.
3) Plot out Book 2 in the trilogy. I know what the story will be about and several chapters have been written but it needs a thorough overhaul.
4) Write some more short stories until the edited verson of Book 1 comes back.
Hmmm…I’m not sure what I’ll do. I need to give it more thought.
