It’s been quiet on the Board over the Summer, just wondering what everyone is working on?
I’ll go first as I fell the need to measure progress (or lack of).
Book One of my fantasy series is complete and the author edits were absolute hell. It’s out with some Beta readers (anyone wants to take a look, ping me proactivitypress [at] gmail), before I do any more. It was supposed to be on sale by now. C’est la vie.
Fortunately Book Two when I picked up again is in much better shape. It’s not high literature but it is coherent. Book Three is about 3/4 done waiting for it’s turn to come around. Books 4 & 5 are percolating in the brain for some time next year. I have characters and outlines.
I diverted over the Summer onto a prequel novella that I aim to use as a reader magnet if I go self published. 17k of 25k target and it’s my prose that’s killing me again. Clearly I need the practice for the main projects.
I posted some short fiction here under Deanna’s writing prompts which cheered me up no end and convinced me I can write fast and well with the right triggers. I’d like to do more, it’s just the time issue.
How’s everyone else?
Daniel’s next summit is coming up. Looking forward to it.
