My recap this month has been delayed because we’ve just returned from our usual long November weekend of gaming and hanging out with friends and not getting a thing done. But seeing as October was a pretty slow month, that’s not too much of a problem. I’ve still got a lot of stories out on submission, but I haven’t heard back on many of them. I did hear back on one, though–“One for Every Year” will be reprinted by Digital Fiction Pub, under their QuickFic banner. I’ll post again when it’s out!
My October was largely devoted to craft show stuff, but I did finish writing all of the pieces for Camp Haunt, and I made some progress on Kyra. I also finished writing a game that we playtested over the weekend, which required much more writing than I anticipated it would. Now that the playtest is over, we’ll eventually make some tweaks and try it again. Though we do have a number of people asking us to run it again for them.
November is going to be me finishing up the first draft of Kyra and the first draft of blues (finally!). I’ll also start on revisions for green and work on expanding an older story that could benefit from another thousand words or so. And then after Kyra is done, I’ll start working on finishing another of my abandoned novels, briar (which was supposed to be my NaNoWriMo last year).
