Welcome to week twenty-three.
Even though I was away for Monday morning, this week has turned out to be a productive week. Once again, I didn’t do quite what I’d planned! In the coming week I have the car’s service and MOT to disrupt proceedings, which will take quite a chunk out of my day on Wednesday.
Nano Project (Books One & Two)
I managed a complete edit on Book One this week, which was a lot quicker than I expected, but then I have been through Book One quite a few times. I had a number of consistency queries, which I wrote down and went back over on Saturday. Book One now stands at 62K. On Sunday, I started on Book Two. If I can, I’ll finish one edit this week at the same time as doing a Kindle read-through on Book One. I’ll do the editing first, when I’m fresher, and the reading later.
Fantasy Book 1
I did nothing on this book this week.
Fantasy Book 2
I expected to do more work on this book this week, but I only worked on it once. I was more in the mood for doing the Nano book, so I did!
The short story I wrote a couple of weeks ago was submitted this week. It could be up to five weeks before I hear anything. I also received an e-mail stating that an anthology for which I had a story accepted, must be two years ago now, will be published soon. Hurrah!
I have also started another short story, which I intend to be a bit longer and I have an idea of where I might try with it if I finish it, but not certain at the moment.
