It’s on. It’s sooo on! I know exactly what I want to do with my year and I’m going to have a ball working on those things.
With Silk Over Razor Blades still waiting for a response I need to keep working on the rest of the trilogy. It doesn’t matter whether Angry Robot take the book or not, I want the trilogy finished so I can work on other things. Frankly put I won’t be capable of focusing on anything properly until I put the other two books to bed.
So I’m going to do exactly that. This year my primary focus is all about Saar’s Legacy, namely Walking The Razor’s Edge and On A Knife Point. WTRE is written and sitting in my bedroom in a stack four inches high, waiting to be read and scribbled on with my Mighty Purple Pen. OAKP is hammering at the doors of my mind, begging to be written so I’m going to do that too. Da Shared Brain mentioned our outline for the year, with every week earmarked for something specific. I know my life and myself well enough to accept that things won’t (and can’t) always go to plan, but having that outline just makes me feel secure. Having a plan is always the first step for me.
When I look at my plans in those two paragraphs it doesn’t look like much. I have to keep reminding myself that it is. I plan to edit one book to completion, draft another and start editing that too. It’s a huge undertaking when, let’s face it, I only really ever have half the time and brain space to get stuff done in.
If I manage it I’ll have to give myself some sort of incredible holiday. Or a party. Or a car. Or all three. I don’t know. Something big anyway. I’ll deserve it.
Next week I’ll go back to my usual offerings of one fun post every Monday morning, followed by my goals round up in the evening.
Until then, stick around for more news. It’s going to be exciting, I promise you that.
