Because I can't just have one...
Since I proudly completed my Camp Nanowrimo goal back at the end of May, I've written maybe 5 sentences? Summer really makes me a slacker. There's so much to do! It's too nice out to be inside! I keep opening up my "Beast of Gevaudan" word document and staring at where I left it at … Continue reading i’ve been such a slacker…
After a bit of a rough couple of weeks, I am finally back on track to complete 20,000 words by the end of the month. I had figured 20K would be so easy, not even half of a regular Nanowrimo, but surprisingly it hasn't been the free ride I was expecting. A bit part of … Continue reading Camp Nano & other progress
The time of Camp Nanowrimo is upon us again. I wasn't planning on attending, but then again, my 2014 goal of writing 500 words a day hasn't exactly panned out, and of course now that I'm nearing completion on Dreamwalkers, my mind is having slutty new ideas. Such as a Wolf Point prequel novella called … Continue reading to camp or not to camp?
A quarterly update on my progress: to finish and publish Dreamwalkers to finalize the print edition of Hitchhikers and offer a giveaway or two (if goal #1 happens) to finish and publish Scavengers and to possibly finish some of my other works-in-progress, including Blood Countess and another new WIP that I haven’t even added to the site yet! be able to … Continue reading goals & progress
*sigh* I figured I'd update my word count over on the Dreamwalkers page, just to keep track of how well I'm doing on my resolution of writing 500 words a day. Unfortunately, this forces me to acknowledge that I've only written 1,679 words this year when I should be up around 6,000. I managed to … Continue reading goals and not meeting them
This year's resolution is to write 500 words a day - that's 1/3 of what I normally churn out a day during Nanowrimo, which makes it much more attainable. I have several other writing-related goals for 2014: to finish and publish Dreamwalkers to finalize the print edition of Hitchhikers and offer a giveaway or two … Continue reading new year’s resolution and 2013 stats
Well, I'm settled into my new place now and I've finally become more motivated to write and to work on my New Year's goal of submitting to 50 agents. I think I will surpass even my 2010 extreme of 77 queries (although my goal that year was 100 rejections). So I'm up to 30 queries … Continue reading query counter
This year I am going to submit my work to at least 50 agents/publishers. This is a better goal than my "get 100 rejections" goal from 2 years ago, because it does not depend on receiving an actual rejection - which many agents/publishers do not bother with. Here's hoping I'll be published before the apocalypse!
So, a round-up of my publishing efforts thus far: 26 submissions sent, only 12 actual rejections. The rest have yet to respond (and some of them probably never will). I am on track as far as sending out submissions to get my 100 rejections, but lagging behind in getting the actual rejections! I am trying … Continue reading keep on truckin’
