Really tidy numbers this month. I had one story that I withdrew from a potential market after no response in almost a year. I had another story (a reprint) that had been making the rounds, but there wasn’t really anywhere to send it. So I’m holding that one for either a perfect reprint market or for a project I’m hoping to work on after the new year begins (UT1). No new acceptances, but I’ve got one story on hold for consideration!
I spent November at a convention, then sick, then doing shows, then sick again, and then doing more shows. So it’s been a rough month for writing, especially with the need to do a bunch of crocheting. I haven’t finished Kyra quite yet, but it’s close. (So close! 3 chapters left!) I finished blues and am waiting to polish that one up. And I polished up “green,” which is my one new submission for November. I also reworked my planned writing schedule, which is now scheduled out to the beginning of 2020. I might have a few ideas that I’ve been working on.
In December, I’m going to finish writing Kyra, polish up blues, and expand the story I mentioned last month. Then I’m going to outline a new book (BG2), which I plan to write in January, February, and March. I’m also doing a little bit of research, if I get a chance, for the project I mentioned above (UT1), which will get into the full swing of things early in 2017.
