(To be completely accurate, it’s the plan for the rest of 2015 and 2016, but let’s not get too hung up on technicalities)
As is normal for anyone approaching the end of a calendar year, I’ve been thinking about the year that has passed and the new one ahead. After some high quality musing, a few different ideas fell into place and I set about creating a writing schedule for the next year.
I was excited when I sat down to make the schedule. Mere moments later, I was overwhelmed and panicked. That’s right, I made up my own task list and promptly freked out at how much there was to do. Who needs external adversaries when your own brain is playing Moriarity to your low rent Holmes?
After a considerable amount of calming down and coffee drinking, the panic passed. There’s still a lot to do, and I’m not promising my internal deadlines are hard and fast, but I have a road map. Would you like to see it? Here are the highlights:
- Finish the first draft of book #4 (underway now, aiming to be done by end of February. Gonna need a title too)
- Revise WitchKids for an enhanced 3rd edition, with even less mistakes AND new content (ETA Mid-March)
- Revise Kingmaker for an enhanced 2nd edition: less oopsies, new story bits (ETA End of March)
- Revise The Patchwork Boy for enhanced 2nd Edition (ETA mid-April)
- Edit and publish book #4 (ETA oh geez sometime in 2016. End of May?)
- Book launch party for book #4 (after it’s done, okay?)
- Forest City Comicon (November 5&6)
And that’s not everything I want to work on, either. Sheesh.
