Thought I’d pop in for a quick status update.
Since my last post, Minerva’s arrived so most of my time and energy has gone to keeping her alive. Edgar and Bartholomew think she’s cute and they get to watch a lot more tv, so they’re more or less happy.
I can’t remember if I mentioned everything I’ve had going on in the writing world for me so far this year and I’m too lazy to look it up, so here’s a (potentially redundant) summary:
January – judging a contest took most of my time, but I read my manuscript and some research books. I also entered a first chapter contest.
February – worked on a beta read and some more research. I also worked on a short story.
March – more beta reading and short story stuff; reverse outlining; research; started contributing to the Historical Hussies blog. Look for my posts on the 3rd Friday of each month.
April – submitted a story for an anthology, a second beta read and currently working on a third beta read and revising my Anglo-Indian governess romance (see screenshot. IT ME.)
I’ve also been busy with the normal stuff– ANWA communications, critique groups, etc.
Next month I’ve got another conference I’m looking forward to. Ideally I’ll have this revision completed by then, but the end of the month or even June are looking most likely. Once that’s done, I’ll send it to some beta readers and go from there. Again, in an ideal world I’m hoping to start querying this summer, but we’ll see what happens.
Anyway, I’ll be back soon with another business and craft of writing post. Anything you’d like me to discuss?
