Work In Progress Wednesday

This week is just flying by–forgot it was Wednesday until I was the blog post reminder in my phone.

I submitted a story to Less Than Three about a week ago, and they’ve already accepted it! So, I’m going to be working on editing that up until NaNoWriMo. I’m geared up for NaNo, and with nine days to go, I’m just getting more excited by the minute.

Technically, I’m cheating for NaNo–you’re only supposed to do one story unless you can connect your stories somehow. Well, I’m going to be using NaNo to write a few stories I’ve wanted to get done to submit to Less Than Three later. They’re connected in that way, so I’m counting it. And it’s not like I’m not putting the words in, so good enough for me.

Hey, don’t forget to enter my giveaway!

Work In Progress Wednesday

I’m coming down with a disgusting, hacky cold that’s cutting my energy off at the knees. Still, I’m working on getting stuff done, pushing myself through even when I feel floppy.

I finished¬†a short story that I started last year and abandoned, so I feel pretty good about that. I’m just waiting on it to come back from my beta and to do my own editing to send it off to Less Than Three Press and see if they take it. It’s a cyberpunky/post apocalyptic-y story with a vampire protagonist in a city of monsters.

Now, I’m debating on what project to do next. I started another short story for LT3, but I’m not feeling it. So, I think I’m going to do a full outline of another story that’s been nibbling at my brain and see where I go with that. If it doesn’t jive, I’ll go back to the first one and force my way through it.

What have you been working on?

Work In Progress Wednesday

My approach to writing has been scatter shot in the past. If I didn’t need to finish something by a specific date, I’d poke at a project here, write a few words there. All of that little bit added up to lots of nothing.

Since I only have one editing project (my lesbian Western) with a due date now, I decided to make myself a writing schedule, to put these ideas in line. Each month, I will give myself one to three projects and just work on those. For example, this month I’m working on finishing one novel, the aforementioned editing, and the sequel to the same Western. Next month, I’ll be doing NaNo¬†and editing a different novel. And so on.

I need guidelines and deadlines to keep myself focused, so I think this will work out well. What are you guys working on?

Work In Progress Wednesday

Had to take a little break from WordPress partially due to internet issues (was without it for a week), and partially due to fatigue. I don’t know what’s wrong with me, but I’m just tired all the time again. It doesn’t seem to make a difference when or how much I sleep, or how much I eat. I’m trying to make myself keep somewhat busy during the day, but I’m not overdoing it.

Writing has come slowly the last few weeks, so I’ve been doing more editing than anything else. I’m still working on the third book of the series I plan to shop out next month, but I’ve also gotten my second book back from Less Than Three press to edit. It’s titled “Grow Wild”, and is a lesbian Western romance. I’m switching between that and the third book.

I also got a few new story ideas, so I’m working on brainstorming one of them. If it comes together nicely, it will be one I’ll try to hand over to LT3. We’ll see what happens.

What have you been working on?

Work in Progress Wednesday

I almost completely forgot what day it was–not good. The week is starting to blend together for me.

That doesn’t mean I haven’t been working! I finished the climax for the book I’m working for, and I’m rounding it off. It’s still taking different, more depressing turns than I’d originally planned, but it’s in line with the book after it, so it’s fine.

I’m also getting back betas for the first book. It’s interesting to see just how different everyone’s thought process is, and that something will irritate the hell out of one person, and the next they didn’t even notice it. I’m still going to keep working on the book I’m doing, book three, and wait until I have my last two betas of book once back.

So, how has your writing been going?
