Writing My Life Away

Completed the first set of edits on Wings of Fire this afternoon and got them sent off to my editor. All things considered, they weren’t as bad as I had anticipated, considering how quickly I wrote that story in my post-semester frenzy of writing. We lost some words, added some more, shifted a few things around, but I think this is going to be a fun story.

Spent some of this afternoon working with Mysticon about my panels, getting my badge ordered, and coordinating with someone about doing a workshop on World Building at the con. Against my better judgement, I signed up for a reading/signing at the show. I enjoy doing them, but compared to some of the bigger authors (or the authors who’ve done several Mysticons and have a fan base there), I’m not expecting huge crowds. But, if you don’t ask, the answer is already no, so I might as well give it a shot.

This evening, after a very nice meal out with my family, I jumped back on to On Wings of Steel. I added a new Chapter Nine this evening, which had me raising the word count by 4,389. I think this new chapter will not only make some of the later chapters make more sense, but it definitely gives some foreshadowing for the final couple of chapters.

Tomorrow, I start the edits on The Gryphon’s Tale and then get back to work on On Wings of Steel.

Of course, I also discovered a magazine I want to submit to has a deadline of 31 Mar 2014. So, I need to knock out a 2500 word story between now and then too. *sigh*

I seem to remember thinking I wasn’t going to have many writing projects in 2014. I think I was engaging in pleasant dreams then . . . or perhaps just hallucinating. *sigh*
