June, unfortunately, was a busy month when it came to everything except my own writing/editing. But I will catch up one of these days.
Here are my July goals:
- Write Reforged for Camp NaNoWriMo. I have a 50,000 word goal, but I would love to finish this novel by the end of July. My main goal is to write one chapter a day.
- Finish writing the short stories in Neighbors of Foxwick as soon as possible. I will send each story as I finish it to my critique partners, but I need to have the entire collection completed very soon, if I want to keep my October release date. My main goal is to write one scene a day.
- Edit Reborn. If I can edit based on my first group of critique partners' suggestions an average of three pages a day in July and August, then I'll be finished with another draft of Reborn, so it'll be ready to go to my beta readers in September.
- Contact and secure a cover artist for Reborn. I have an artist in mind, but I was just waiting for the new fiscal year at the day job before I contacted her.
I also have another unedited snippet of "Common Love" from the forthcoming Neighbors of Foxwick.
Upon a balcony, a vision dressed in white furs lifted her hand toward him. Blue hair whipped about in the wind, and Bryan could imagine Vereina’s tender smile, although from this distance, he could just make out her features.His own grin curled up his lips, and he started to wave back when the guard shoved him. Bryan stumbled forward upon the magically lit path.The gate clanged shut behind him.But he had seen her. That knowledge had him skipping back to town and his father’s shop.
What are your July goals?
