A mid-year examination of what I hope to accomplish. The Write 1 Sub 1 widget is gone from the sidebar. I am just not the speedy short story writer I would like to be, even without the novel(s) hovering in the background, waiting for my attention.
Instead, a much more realistic to-do list. One last short fiction draft to finish, three pieces I am overdue to revise. And Talassio to work on before and after Italy, with the goal of being Done with England by summer’s end, and the full second draft by the end of the year.
Which is doing wonders for my overall outlook and stress level right now. The day job is being particularly difficult at the moment, and I spent the weekend struggling with The Horrible Chapter 3, plus this flurry of rejections—such a relief, then, to whittle everything down to this small, manageable list, that still lets me move forward on all fronts.
