Back at work, and daydreaming...

I'm daydreaming of getting back to my writing/editing/etc. :)

I thought I'd do an update on my goals as they lie so far in 2011. That way I don't have to do that reverb10 stuff yet, and yay, I love procrastination! Hehe. So here goes:

  1. Finish current edit of SUNDOWN and order a proof copy (done - received my copy, it's lovely!)
  2. Participate in NaNoEdMo 2011, editing book 4 of SUNDOWN series (counting down the days! As of now, we have 49 Days, 13 Hours, 32 Minutes, 17 Seconds to go)
  3. Write 52 short stories, one per week, for the Chrysalis Experiment (written my first story; next is my turn to post a prompt, and I'm struggling to choose between a few options. Excitement!)
  4. Write at least once a week in W O R D + S T U F F blog (doing well at this so far!)
  5. Win NaNoWriMo 2011 (naturally I can't do much about this yet :D)
  6. Finish off first draft of STORM (not anywhere near starting this yet...but I'm thinking about it. Now is probably the time to start doing it)
  7. Complete a preliminary read-through/edit of NAUSICAA (putting this off...maybe until the second half of the year. Still not over NaNo '10. hehe)
In other words, some of it is ongoing and I'm doing it every week, some of it is delayed because of its nature, i.e. takes place in a certain month...and other stuff is pending. The pending stuff is what I need to get to.

I won't bother with the other items on the list, which are "would like to but probably won't", or "definitely won't, even if I'd like to" items. I will update my G O A L S '11 page each time something gets crossed off.

How's everyone going with their new years' goals/resolutions so far??


  1. Are you thinking what I'm thinking? Only fifty one stories left. :(

  2. Haha. I guess I'm not quite at that stage yet, I'm more at the 'WOO THIS IS FUN!' stage. lol. not getting depressed over the fact that it'll all be over soon, quite yet :P

    Gotta post my prompt. aaaargh last minute decisions! they kill me!


Thanks for your words, me hearties! and don't forget to leave a link to your blog somewhere I can find it!
