NYR: January progress report

01/02/2014 14:42

It’s the 1st February, so time to revisit: how am I doing on my New Year’s Resolutions?


Goal 1: Finish Changing Winds Part 2 and, as a stretch goal, finish Empty Skies.

Finish Changing Winds Part 2: ongoing. I’m on 27,000 words with a complete outline and most chapters written, two sections to expand and one chapter to write, so January progress on this is good.

Finish Empty Skies: also ongoing. It’s 14,000 words and I have done some work on it, so I’m happy.


Goal 2: Finish re-writing Shadows (which is sort of a get-this-done-in-January aim) and re-write Ghosts to fit in with what is now happening in Shadows.

Hah, yeah. No. No work done at all. I can’t get into the right headset for it, so I haven’t pushed myself.


Goal 3: Madcap Library: get some pictures done (ok, maybe that translated as “nag my illustrator”) and self-publish at least the first few.

In progress! Hannah’s currently working on some covers for the first two collections, so this is going well.


Goal 4: Continue on the road to official publication.

I sent some letters to agents at the beginning of January, but nothing else has progressed so far. So, ongoing.


Goal 5. Stretch goals: finish some of my other writing.

Nope. But then I have been working on Greensky, so I’m not too worried.

Madcap Library’s back!

Gru’s back in the game, baby!


Two more Madcap Library stories completed, and three more people reading them. Apparently the Sloth’s the most popular – but then he’s my favourite too, so I think it’s entirely understandable.

Hannah’s doing some covers for me, and it feels like progress is being made! I may have an Amazon link soon, wheeeehehehe *goes to hide under the bed*
