I would like to say that the transition is over, that we’ve completed the move and I’ve got a handle on both the current and future writing projects. The truth is we’re still finding places for stuff in the new (tiny) apartment, my husband has not yet found a new job, I’ve barely scratched the surface of the mountain of work to transition The Cities of Luna from my wonderful publisher (who, sadly, closed their doors) to self-pub, and I have not decided which longer project to work on next.
I’m glad for the structure my friends with A Round of Words in 80 Days give me. Instead of feeling like I’m helplessly spinning my wheels, I have the goal of having loose ends tied up for round three in July.
My goals in the meantime are fairly loose. I used to write at least 1k 5-6 times a week, and it was often 2k or more. For now, I’ll be satisfied with writing a few hundred words 3 times a week. I am emphatically pursuing writing opportunities that pique my interest in contests, magazines, and anthologies. I have to prep the files forThe Cities of Luna so that at the end of June, when they come down, I can put them back up again under my own name. Lastly, I need to decide what novel or novella to work on next. I love my short stories, but I want to have something more substantial out there.
