To Do List



At the beginning of the year I had a To Do List, writing related things I really wanted to achieve for 2011. Well the year is half over and I felt compelled to go back and see how I was fairing!! Not too badly so far..but could be better.

Here's my list - and responses so far (will have to update at end of year)

Finish my co-authored single title, Believe, find an agent and a contract (All finished. I've sent a Query Letter to some agents, but have to do some more research and send out to some more.)

Write and publish the last novella of my gargoyle series, Winged & Dangerous. (Revising that right now)

Release another Bites story for 2011, and perhaps write a series. (I eventually wrote a Cravings - which is now elsewhere. I'm 7k into another story that should be more suitable!)

Finish my Ellora's Cave ms tentativly titled "Brothers of the Otherworld". (This one is released on the 15th of this month and renamed Galactic Burn. Very excited!)

Start work again on my single title ms "Dimensional" I began early 2010 (Had a very short bout on this book, really itching to start on it again soon)

Rework Shadow Hunter, which has been sitting idly since those comp wins/finals, and decide where it belongs, if anywhere. (This was my first ms and I'm not sure it fits anywhere without extensive work...might have to put off this one for another year *g*)

Choose one of my many 'just started' projects from over the years, and finish it!! (I found a really cool chapter of an old ms that should make a great Cravings or EC story and am 7k in...*see above*)

Wish me luck!!! =))

Great job on goal achieving. I also had a to do list, the very last one is almost happening, but it's been a hard slog. lol.
