|I'm very content to pretend this is me.|
Are you ready? (maybe a little scared?)
First... Let me explain.
No. Is too much. Let me sum up.
What Needs DOING, broadly
Big Rewrite: CONFLUENCE, ILLUSIONS (which also needs a new name), CONSPIRACY, WHAT ALES ME, MEDIUM WRONG.
To Write: I got Armageddon coming at me from four different directions, eh? I will write TWO of these this year. I will write a 3rd book iff I get a formal publisher request for such (a 4th on the cozy contract or if WHAT ALES ME sells as part of a series) MOSTLY, though, I am going to concentrate on rewriting and polishing some of this other stuff.
Revise LEGACY one last time.
Finally hammer out a GOOD pitch for it.
Enter that baby (the book, I mean, not a real baby)
Type in rest of WHAT ALES ME.
Potentially Tweak Kahlotus (have some ideas based on publisher feedback—need agent powwow)
Fill in holes and first revision CHRYSANTHEMUM CAMPAIGN.
CC to peer readers for the month.
Revise WHAT ALES ME.
Plan promotional campaign for AZALEA ASSAULT
WHAT ALES ME to peers.
Revise CC per feedback. Read out loud. Revise again.

Slot for specifically requested revisions for MEDIUM WRONG/WHAT ALES ME
First revision summer Armageddon book
NaNoWriMo: Thenother Armageddon? (yeah, I think so... but things change)
Finally polish CONFLUENCE
If time, begin revision ILLUSIONS
Ambitious? Yes. Subject to change? Absolutely. But I always do best if I have a direction and something to look to when I finish something... otherwise I can spin my wheels too long before getting back on track.
So what are your writing goals?
And Happy New Year to All of you!!!
