What writing did I get done this year? A lot, in fact. As usual: not quite as much as I would have wanted, but I can’t get it all. There’s such a thing as my family ( ❤ , of course) and my day job (also ❤ ) that takes precedence over writing (which is my third <3!).
The stats are as follows:
Books published: 0 –> but this year I’ve spent many weeks in the official publishing cycle with my March 2016 novel, you know! Editing on tight deadlines, no less than three rounds plus checking text proof galleys, took its time!
Works completed: 2 –> one is being queried right now. The other one will soon(ish) find its way to my beta readers before one final round of revision before querying.
Works in progress: 1 –> a thin first draft WILL be done by the end of 2015. I still have one day to do the job!
(I don’t think a first draft counts as a completed work, which is why I won’t include it in that category.)
Shiny New Ideas: 3 –> I will start one of them as soon as possible. Actually, I’ve kind of started it already by outlining the main events and characterizations. As for the other two SNIs, we’ll see what I have time for. I have a folder filled with shiny OLD ideas already…
Rejections: PLENTY –> I’m fairly unaffected by rejections so far, because after all I’m about to have my second novel published. 🙂 Being rejected is part of the writing process, after all. Not fun, but you just have to deal with it and move on. Same as with many things in life.
