On September 29, I finished the first draft of my short story "Folds in Life and Death," which came in at 6,360 words. I've since edited it to under the 6,000 word count limit and have one last proofread before submitting it later this week. On September 30, I completed the first draft of The Mission (The Gaia Project #1.1), which came in at 21,530 words. On October 24, I finished writing the first draft to the short story "On Day 168," which came in at 7,899 words.
I have continued writing every single day since July 1. This month, I've been working on Forged (The Fate Challenges #2) and the short story "On Day 168." Since I finished "On Day 168," I'm now writing the bonus woodwose section. I finished editing my friend's novel, published Mayhem in the Air, and will start working on the edits for Marked (The Fate Challenges #1.5) soon.
I have figured out my secondary project after I finish the bonus woodwose section for The Fate Challenges boxed set. The next series I plan to write is Soul Reaper (Urban Fantasy). The series will include a prequel novella and at least three novels.
Here are my November goals:
Write 30 minutes a day on a primary project - This goal still relates to Forged. Just 20 chapters to go!
Write 15 minutes a day on a secondary project. - I plan to continue writing the bonus woodwose section for the boxed set of The Fate Challenges.
Finish editing Marked and send it to my first critique partner.
Outline Soul Reaper series.
Read through The Mission (The Gaia Project #1.1) and take notes.
What are your goals for this coming month?
