It has been a decent two weeks. The writing is progressing and getting more consistent bit by bit. Starting off slowly and picking up speed.
It helps to have scheduled writing times and in the past couple of weeks, I have been making every effort to stick to them (though I have missed a few). I’m grateful for a supportive husband who lets me go out or go into my cave to write for 3 hours at a time. A significant thing since we have 3 active boys under the age of 10.
I’m beginning to work more on Lily’s Hope – the sci-fi thriller – which is great because I feel like I’ve been away from it for so long (though it’s only been about three weeks). I’m excited to be back on it and a little intimidated honestly. The plot is ambitious. I’m hoping the story will come together in a solid, “thrilling” way.
In addition to my stated writing goals, I am working on a revision of an amateur sleuth cozy WIP so that has been the main writing I’ve done lately. I’m hoping to revise it a few times and get beta readers within the next six months so that I could self-publish it. Scary, daunting yet exciting is this goal to self-publish.
We’ll see. I’m about to do some research on self-publishing. Talk about a new frontier.
In the meantime, I’m reading a book on how to get a literary agent. Another big 2015 writing goal is to start consistently querying agents. Talk about daunting…ahh…
Wishing all of you ROW80ers an amazing week of writing and progress…
