Yes, I realize those are some dangerous words, despite the fact that I think a lot. I even wish they had a device that could be hooked up to my brain, so I could just think the words and images, and they would write themselves out onto the computer screen. I'd get so much more written that way, if I just had to think it. *laughs* But, I've been thinking about the coming months on the blog here and writing in general.
My writing goals have been shot this year. By this time, I had hoped to have a third novel written. Have I? Nope. I've only written one chapter in book two of the Phoenix Trilogy and three chapters in a new novel Hammered Home. I've written several short stories, but I really want to go back to writing novels.
So, I've decided July would be a brand new start when it comes to writing. I'm going to try to write almost every day. On Mondays, I'm going to work on a novel. I plan to get back to writing Moonlight Murders, my historical mystery novel. And, if I get stuck with it, then I'll work again on Hammered Home or The Phoenix Sorceress. On Tuesdays, I plan to work on a short story. On Wednesdays, I'm going to begin working on a paranormal romance novella I have in my head. On Thursdays and Fridays, I'll work on either my novel, short story, or novella, depending on what time I have during the day to do so. On the weekends, I'll be editing Virtuoso and The Phoenix Prophetess and anything else that might require edits, such as old short stories.
Since my start and success in my one flash fiction story, I thought it would be fun to write some flash fiction as a writing practice. On the blog, I'm going to begin having "Flash Fiction Fridays." I'll try to have a new flash fiction piece every Friday beginning in July. I might not get something written for every Friday, but it would be a great exercise in story, characters, and words.
Also, since I'm up to 22 members, I wanted to mention again that I'll begin having interviews on my blog. If you are an author and have something published or forthcoming and want a little exposure, please comment on the blog or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I'd be happy to interview people. *smiles*
And, if you are considering reading Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, you should hop over to Raven and the Writing Desk. I wrote a review of this science fiction/steampunk novel. You'll find reviews, stories, and much more there.
Happy Friday, everyone! Have a good weekend!
