August has been an interesting month…
The Plan was to Finish up My Editing on my “I Died Once” Novella, which I basically will have once I meet one more time with my Editor to touch up a few things.
At which point I will “Self Publish” it, send My Kickstarter supporters their Books, and get a Sample to the Local Bookstore that I have my Poetry Book in.
Now with “Chess With Agatha” , My First Completed Fantasy Novel, I need to Finish Cleaning it up, and get it to Beth (My Follower / Reviewer / Line Editor) to Review, and Line Edit it…
Now that I’m considering Self Publishing My Blog Series “Allure” into a Series of Short Novellas, it pretty much will come into the lineup After “Chess With Agatha”…
So yeah, “I Died Once” in August-September, “Chess With Agatha” in December, 2012-January, 2013, and “Allure” sometime after that…
That’s one of the reasons I’ve eased up on Writing a lot of New Material right now… I don’t want a Huge Stockpile building up.
As appealing as that might sound, it can start to make you feel a bit Frustrated, and Impatient with the other Work Involved / Needed to actually get your Work Self Published, beyond just the Writing.
Like Editing, and Marketing.
As it is I have 6 or 7 Additional Books of Poetry ready to be Edited, that I just don’t have time to deal with at the moment.
Anyway, though I’ve eased up on My Story Writing for a moment, I am still Writing Editorials Etc., which has been fun, and helps me to maintain my Writing Goal of 800 to 1,200 Words a Day.
However, I do believe I will continue working on “Iliad”, Book Two in the Chess With Agatha Series, in September.
For those of you that missed the Beginnings of that Book, here they are;
Chapter I – Home
Chapter II – Matters Of The State
I’m hoping to Finish Writing this by the End of November, to free up my time for the Holidays, which are really important to me.
Thanks for Listening/Reading, and all of your Support
Would Love to hear what any of you think of all of this, and also what you’re up to with your Creative Pursuits, if you’ve got some going.
