I’ve bounced around on my projects since we moved, trying to get my head back in the right ‘space’. I’ve been slowly getting things settled. So I’m taking a look at the last half of the year. There are two big projects I want to finish (1st drafts), Bastard Prince and Crown of Bones. I have three smaller (short story size) projects; the FMAnthology, The Christmas Zombie thing, and another ‘from the author’s POV story’ and I have 5 months…
Bastard Prince is sitting currently at 29k and I think 60k should wrap it up. I am going to be doing Aug Camp nano and I am fairly confident I can get that in Aug. Sept might be a rest up, do little projects, then (maybe) tackle COB again in oct/november. I wanted to have COB finished (rough draft at least) before oct, but I have to say I don’t think it will happen.
There is something I’ve been missing with COB, and I haven’t had the time to sit down and just LOOK at it. Maybe I’ll do that in Oct. Well see.
I also need to do the next pass on E1, I’d like to have it pub ready before the end of this year.
so the line up is;
~ Bastard Prince I will finish this gods be damned story, dang it
~ Shorter projects;
- FM-Anthology (submission call is over here for those interested)
- Christmas Zombie-thing
- Inside the Author’s mind story
~ Final Edit round on Elemental Truth and possibly start formatting?
~ Do the cover for Bastard Prince , Crown of Bones, Christmas Zombie and Elemental Flame
~ plotting/worldbuilding for Crown of bones. I need to sit down and just work out what is bugging me about this project.
~Plotting on Elemental Flame (E2)
~ Crown of Bones
~ If COB doesn’t pan out I’ll work on E2
~ Publish the christmas zombiething
~ publish E1(?)
~ Put together goals list for 2013 (dear dog did I just write that? o.O)
As usual, this list is subject to change (or be totally ignored) depending on how my RL goes.
There is a lot going on, on the internets, a lot that I have been thinking and mulling over. I just don’t have the words quite right in my head just yet.
Have a good day, folks. Happy Monday!
