Good morning everyone!
Okay, as I’m sure you can tell by the title, this post is going to be an interesting one.
When the New Year started, I planned on 2015 being a revision year for many of my previously written but not yet published books with some novella writing on the side. Instead, I threw myself totally into writing my horror novellas.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining about cranking out a handful of novellas. I’m more upset I forgot all about the revision part of my plan until, you guessed it, April 15. How fitting that I did a small self-audit on the last day of US tax day. I swear, I couldn’t have planned this if I tried.
So, what does it all mean?
Well, after this Camp NaNo (I already hit my goal of 20k. WHOOT!), I’m going to focus on typing up The Sword and the Flame: The Dragonmaster and finishing reediting Call of Poseidon. My novellas won’t take long to transcribe, so I’ll be able to work those in around the revisioning projects I have lined up. Did I mention a release of The Winter Creek Hunter in mid-May? Guess that’s another post. 😀
All of that should keep me busy until the next Camp NaNo (in July, I think?). For that camp, I’m going to work on my first ever choose-your-own-adventure mystery book. I want to start plotting that in May, and this is something I’m really looking forward to. Once that’s complete in Camp, I’ll go back into my revision mode.
Sounds simple, right? I wish. I’m sure I’m going to be fighting off my muse the whole time, so I also have November’s NaNoWriMo ready to go. Simply put, I want to finish the fifth Sword and the Flame novel and a sci-fi thriller I started last year but set aside due to writing myself into a corner.
The only problem I foresee is history repeating itself and my plans going up in smoke. I’m not used to planning ahead like this, so it should be fun either way.
What do you all have planned or haven’t you gotten that far ahead yet?
