- DARK MOON RISING
Wow, 2017, already. I definitely puttered around in 2016. And 2015. And 2014. I want to do a redo of the past five years, please. Maybe if I had been less lazy, I would already have ten more books under my belt and making a steady income. Ah well, no use crying over spilled milk, but I have to be honest with myself. This year, I’m going to make it. Make it or die, baby.
I’m going to try my best to add another 5 books to my bibliography.
Or at least, those are the bare minimum I’d like to complete by 2018 rolls around. Or something like that. It’d be great if I could do more, but I will be happy to get just those finished and off my plate.
This past week, even though I’ve got plenty of things to work on, I was working on a plot for a new fantasy romance that still doesn’t have a name just yet. It is kind of inspired by The Great Wall and Attack on Titans, in that humanity has chosen to hide behind a large wall to keep something out and our heroine gets transported to that world, as the so-called Seer who can protect the kingdom from utter annihilation.
I’ve got the entire synopsis written out, so it’s really all a matter of building on that even more. I’m not sure when I can finish it, but I would love to be able to dedicate even 500 words a day on the project. After all, I can finish it in half a year, which is better than anything else I’ve been able to do in the past few years. God, I’ve allowed myself to grow complacent. Taking 3 hour naps during the afternoon and shit, jesus, am I paying for it now. Luckily, I haven’t been taking naps during the afternoon in quite a while, so that’s good. The entrance of WoW, has changed that. I’m going to try to work until 2 or 3 today, and I have my last class today, and then it’ll be a month of just working for me and I’ll go to Korea for a week or so, to see mom and dad. Really thinking hard about my summer vacation. David will be gone for a while, but I’m thinking of just going to Chicago for maybe 1-2 weeks. At least last year Beka was here, but now it’s just going to be the ayi and I don’t want to leave her saddled with the cats for too long. Besides, I’ve already decided 2017 was going to be the year of lots and lots of working.
Right, that’s all for me for now. Today’s goal, I just want to transfer the entirety of the fantasy story synopsis into the Scrivener project and finish editing the last chapter of THD #2. I need to send an email to Megan and let her know I have to push back the edits until the end of February, and either wait until then, or do the line edits myself then. Thankfully, in my opinion, I think line editing is a little less difficult than dev editing, so I might be able to do it myself. Who knows. Or I’ll find someone else who is willing to edit the project and let me pay once they’re done. who knows, who knows.
I also need to email Red and get the coaching rolling. I just feel like such a pud sometimes and there’s really no one I can talk to. Everyone I tried talking to only care to talk about themselves, so I’m the one who’s constantly asking them questions and they don’t reciprocate. I’ve actually realized that the art of conversation is a dying art. Or am I really not that interesting or likeable enough? I ask people questions about their lives and they tell me, but they don’t ask me back, even as just a courtesy.
right, right, let’s get to work. Also, looks like it’s pizza for lunch again, loool, first world problem!
