Okay, here is my list of writing tasks I’ve accomplished so far this week:
Received critique notes from Cresta on my short story Abandon. Edited. Sent it back to her for a final read through. I’m not sure I will submit this one to publications or contests. I’m thinking of posting it to Storiad or Inkubate. It’s kind of a dated story because Robbie Williams is briefly featured. (Don’t tell him I said that!)
Outlined a new short story, tentatively titled Noted Dreams. I’ve written the beginning and will continue to add to it little by little. It’s a tiny snapshot of musicians and the toll fame takes.
Have another story developed in my mind and will have it outlined soon. Not sure of what to title it. That will come once I start writing. This one is another musician story but it’s not about the industry; it’s more of an introspective journey made by one woman within the confines of one day.
Have the kernel of a third story but its idea is a bit more complicated. Will need to let it simmer for a while before it’s ready for an outline. No musician in this one. 😉 It’s about a woman whom everyone thinks is missing due to foul play but she’s not really missing. She knows exactly where she is. LOL It needs some plotting but I think it will be interesting once it’s put together.
Notes for my novel are nearly finished. Just need to add a few more details before sending them to Cresta. This one is deeply personal and I’m purposely dragging my feet. I know what I want to happen but am hoping Cresta can help me with plotting. The back-story is fully developed and has been for quite some time. Now it’s time to move forward.
What about you? What writing accomplishments have you made?
