I went to a cafe and managed to edit a chapter of Calico before my brain turned itself off, but I was able to do the same amount at home later that afternoon. Another thing of note was that I wore a new dress with pompoms on it and they’ve been falling off 😦 I’ve been leaving a trail of fluff where ever I go 😦 I don’t know where a third of them have gone, but I’ve been collecting them whenever I see them.
Didn’t do anything the day before, but today I edited the first chapter or five pages of Beyond Calico 85. I’ve only written about 15,000 words of this novella and I need to get it done soon. The last time I touched it was mid-March. It’s a sci-fi mystery, however, I’m not too sure whereabouts I’m going with the story. I think I have the last scene in my head, but I’m not sure. This mystery story is a mystery to me as well 😛
I’ll be 30 in 18 months.
My current ultimate goal of pushing out 10 stories by this deadline is looking like it might not happen. Eeek! Damn my mortal flesh body, you had to go and be organic 😦 I honestly believe that if it were not for burnout then I would have pushed out two maybe three stories by now. I do not know when I’ll pick up the pen again.
But I can tell you that the next stories I will be publishing are; Save One, The Things We Do, and Jumpstart. These are the ones that are only a few drafts away from completion. I’m so close, but I just can’t make myself attend to them 😦
I haven’t really thought about what happens after I get ten books out there. Maybe I’ll start to develop more of a following (That’s a dream I have) without putting that much effort into it . . not likely. Maybe I’ll start a youtube channel, I’ve been thinking about it. Or I’ll just set another goal to achieve. I don’t have much skill in marketing and I’m quite a shy person.
I don’t know how I’ll feel if I don’t complete my goal. I’d imagine I’d feel pretty down. I mean, I’ve had years to complete it. Why didn’t I manage the circumstances to ensure that I completed my goal? What did I do wrong? But that is something I can manage at the moment.
