But there's unseen news drifting in on the wind: Jake of the Sadaar has brought some goals with him into June.
I like to call summer the Season of Writing. Made that up just now; clever, huh?
And I have some incentive for writing, too. For instance, consider this: if you had 26 days until a writing conference, wouldn't you write? But it's more complicated than that. Because it's the OYAN [One Year Adventure Novel] conference: and that means you have to have an OYAN novel. One I *ahem* haven't quite written one yet. Yup, that's incentive. Poor Procrastination doesn't stand a chance.
So here's some goals I have for this month of June, things I'd like to get done. And it's a list! Huzzah for lists! Lists and bullets! Double combination.
This list is in order of priority.
- Write the OYAN novel. This is pretty much a must. Either that, or I'm showing up to the Conference with a blank novel to share. (Yup, I'm going to be sharing my novel at that conference. Now you ALL want to go, eh?)
- Rewrite the Book of Shaldu. This probably won't happen, since I need to have it formatted and edited and stuff for a proof copy from CreateSpace. Believe it or not, I still haven't gotten my free proof copy from all the way back to NaNoWriMo. Oh, and did I mention the free copy expires June 31st? ;)
- Write the last section of A Battle Fought at Midday. This is farther down the list, since my above works have an "expiration date".
- Write in Revolution. Probably won't happen, but there's a slim chance I'll have some time. I'll probably pick it up next month
That's about it. See you all next time.
(Postscript: Contact me if you want to do a rough-and-ready Word War. I'm craving those right now; I gotta finish a novel before the 28th, right?)
