Wednesday's Writing Update: Award, Editing, and More!
I reviewed G.L. Breedon's The Wizard of Time on Surrounded by Books Reviews today.
I just realized yesterday that Once Upon a December Nightmare is now available on Amazon France.
Alice Audrey recently awarded me the Liebster Blog award. Thank you, Alice! I met Alice during Teaser Tuesdays.
Look to your left (click F5 if you can't see the Followers list). I'm up to 351 followers! I am amazed. Simply shocked. If I'm not following you back, please let me know in the comments with your blog link so I can follow.
This week I'm trying to get back in the habit of editing and writing. I've fallen out of it earlier this month and I need the habit before we get to November and NaNoWriMo (more of that next week's post).
What I'm editing? The Phoenix Prophetess and The Best of Raven and the Writing Desk. For The Phoenix Prophetess, I'm trying to do two chapters a day (one third edit chapter and one second edit chapter). I would like to have the second edit complete before November and a good portion of the third edit done by then. I hope to have it all polished up in December/January. *crosses fingers* For The Best of Raven and the Writing Desk, I need to get on that.
What I'm writing? The Foxwick Chronicles: Women of Foxwick. This is a fantasy short story collection (5 short stories, about 20,000 words total) I'm working on and considering self-publishing. Two and a half short stories are written, and I would like to finish the other two and a half before the end of October.
If I have time, I am toying with the idea of writing a novella out of an old short story "Cassandra Project," now titled Confessions of a Telekinetic. I'm not sure if I'll have the time, but I'm seeing where it takes me before November.
Of course, I'm trying to get as much done before November because November is about writing and NaNoWriMo.
Are you planning to participate in NaNoWriMo? What are you working on?
