With one goal down, I’m focusing in on my two remaining goals. First, editing Vessel, the sequel to Tribute. I certainly wish I’d accomplished more on this front. I’m only five chapters in — so about 20%. I’ll finish this edit in the next month.
The final goal was (modified to) 30,000 words of an urban fantasy. As of today, I have 8,800 words. That’s not terrible, and I’m finally starting to feel like I can slip into writing it, instead of spending ten minutes just staring at the screen. So that leaves 21,200 words remaining… not impossible, but far fetched with my recent track record. Let’s hope I hit my groove! (Of course, we all know it isn’t about hope. It’s about getting in there, hands in the word muck, and getting it done!)
I’m also starting to think ahead about what comes next for each of these projects. I need to make some decisions about the fall. My husband was shocked when I mentioned not doing NaNo. I’m just not certain 50,000 in a month makes sense for my life right now, or for the status of any of my projects. I don’t need the temptation to start something new. So NaNo — I’m just not sure.
