Early September Progress Report

We’re five days into September and so far I’ve been pretty productive.

I have:

  • posted over at Wandering at the Shadows’ Edge
  • posted over at Find the Soul
  • written 567 words on a new short story
  • set up the charity anthology on Amazon, CreateSpace, and Digital2Draft
  • tracked my word count for each day
  • got the email list fixed!
  • updated the Publisher and payment information on all the publishing accounts
  • input all my current story ideas in Scrivener – most are just notecards right now, but they’re all consolidated. There are over 100 ideas that I’ve either got notes or beginnings for.

February 2016 Planning

Normally I try to switch between zero drafts and revisions, but since I’m querying Secrets and Shadows starting this month, I thought revising the sequel would be a good idea. I’m sure it will take a couple months to hear back on any of my queries, but I’d like to have the sequel more or less ready to go, just in case.

Revision

Short Stories
