My goal for 2018 is not words but finished projects. Of course, words happen as a byproduct of
Getting $hit Finished, so I have stated a target - 200,000 - or around 500 wpd.
The Tombs of Arkon Theta
Sci fi romance loosely based on The Time of Angels with hints of The God Complex because
I'm unrepentant Whovian. But if you think Tanis is the Doctor, you have the wrong Tardis.
Status: 12,500 / ?
Pirate Queen's Prisoner
SFR, governor's daughter/pirate queen
Status: rough outline
MASH in space. Need I say more?
Status: 4,000 / ?
November 2017, I joined Entangled Publishing as an editing intern. I'm on slush pile duties,
reading two submissions a month and giving a decision as to whether the story ought to be
accepted or not. It's a tough job, despite getting to read books for free, because you're
dealing with people's dreams. I have to write a detailed report for each submission, so have to
figure that into my weekly schedule.
Talking of my schedule, this is another big step to making sure I get things done.
I'm writing/interning Monday - Friday, 10am - 4pm, then I'm on dinner duty.
Evenings and weekends are set aside for crocheting, since I'm still working as a designer.
I want to submit more designs in 2018, which means I have to put in the hours there.
I'm also hoping to re-release TIN CAT in 2018. Actually, I'd hoped to do it this year, but
finances have been against me. I've lined up a designer for new cover art/interior formatting
and am currently negotiating payments for that.
