- Spend at least half an hour every day on writing or editing, an hour on weekends
- Finish rewrite of Dragons at Dawn
- Post to my blog on the ROW80 update days (Sunday and Wednesday)
- Read at least one of my books on writing every week
I found that I didn’t have anything to read for my critique group last night, because I have been working so much on plotting my revisions that I haven’t done any writing recently. I am almost tempted into starting yet another project just to have something that I can contribute. But it would probably be better to keep plugging away at my plans so that I can begin my rewrites soon.
I am really looking forward to WisCon in a couple of weeks. Part of my excitement is that I will get to meet a lot of people in the publishing industry. I hope to make some contacts with other writers, as well as publishers and editors that I can talk to about selling my books. The one concern I have is that I have thought about my Valkyrie story so much since I made my submission for the writer’s workshop that I now have a much different idea about my story than what they will be reviewing. They will probably still have good input though, and I can probably ask what they might think of my new ideas.
I am still reading Writing the Short Story, by Jack M Bickham. I haven’t made any progress since my last update, and am still on Chapter 12 (of 18).
See you back here on Sunday. Hopefully I’ll have finished the Bickham book by then.
