Ten days have gone by and nothing to show for it. I did write one story, and edited about a dozen more. I have researched publishers of non-ficiton collections, and have also attempted to see if I can get a grainy idea of where I want the Z-boat sequel to go. I know wherever it goes it has to open to a third one, then again maybe not.
I have two other books beckoning me to write them, one is a werewolf tale, the other is a different take on zombies. So many ideas I wish I could hire people to type them all down for me, would be such a time saver. Alas, I need to do it and the feeling of accomplishment is worth it.
Z-Boat should be coming out sometime soon, line edits are done, and apparently it is in formatting. Not sure how long that takes, but am not going to complain as I want it to be the best it can be.
I have a few anthologies with stories of mine in them coming out, they were acceptances I received long ago and are finally seeing print, I am excited about them.
In the mean time I am trying to prioritize my short story submissions with working on my novel. I have about 8 or so short stories, but only 4 that need to be done between now and mid-October..no stress, then again I work better when the deadline looms and I can see the minutes on the clock ticking by.
Not sure if most writers are like that, but I sure am. The more pressure the better.
So I am off to try and get a few shorts off my plate so I can let the pressure start around the October 7th or 8th, just for fun.
Also looking forward to reading the stories in Read the End First, have about six of them in and they are great. Really interesting takes on the apocalypse, I think people will be excited about this anthology, and as I said I have a great person doing the introduction.
That is all for now, need to type on my stories..or catch some sleep..or edit….or read..or something.
