What have I accomplished in the second quarter of 2017? Good question. Survey says:
Not much. At least, it feels that way. In May, I took an online class called Write Better Faster and although eye opening, it confirmed I don’t have a lot of time to work with. I tried dictation and had a bumpy start so I need to buckle down and give it a real try. I’ll also try to add a trip to the library once a week to write or edit in peace. But lets check on those goals!
- Deceiving the Bandit Lord: No new progress. Still with beta readers.
- Winter’s Bride: No new progress however I will be using this novel as a guinea pig and attempt to bullet journal the writing process. My idea is to generate my series bible while I write the book so when I try a sequel (TBD), all my information is in one spot and easy to find and navigate. What’s a bullet journal? Check out my blog post here.
- Love Through Heartache Anthology; Cost of a Kiss: I’m almost done with this. I had to delete the last 2k words I wrote because it was boring and made no sense. If I the author find it boring and nonsense, you the reader will feel that way too. So big old delete and now there’s a wizards duel and it’s going well. Deadline is fast approaching so I have to get this done soon. Read chapter 1 here.
- Haunting the Noble Hunter: Not started. I wont be able to start until DtBL is done because I need the details finalized in book 2 before I can start book 3.
Call me an optimist but I think I can still make it. With what I’ve learned about my brain type and new tools to help me stay on task, I think I can get these done or really close by the end of 2017.
