So . . . new plan for the blog and the first of my new(ish) fortnightly goal posts.
Let’s see . . .
Actions Last Week
~Write another 10,000 words of ‘Slippers & Chains: Picking Out Curtains’
Sorted. In fact, not only did I do that, but I kept going and finished it! The novella is now completed in first draft and resting while Ileandra works on her NaNo piece. I’m so pleased and surprised at how easy it was to work through. Gotta say, there is something to be said about the merits of outlining. 😉
~Draft half of my third Smexxy Snippet
Nope. conscious decision to leave this since DSB was about to experience ahead explosion. What with ‘Picking Out Curtains’ and ‘Clash of the Animal Kings (Mach II)’ it seemed a bit insane to expect to do more. But . . . ‘Picking Out Curtains’ is done now, so I should be able to look into that. ^_^
October Round Up
~Draft 13,000 words of ‘Slippers & Chains Three’
Done. See above. ^_^
~Order proofs of ‘Slippers & Chains: Second Base’ and finalise all details across Amazon, CreateSpace and Smashwords
Sorted. Book is now available for pre-order on Amazon and the CreateSpace version is just waiting for me to hit ‘go’ as I don’t believe I can do pre-orders there.
~Put ‘Slippers & Chains: Second Base’ up for pre-order on all available sites
Yep. Looking gooooood!
Change That Shit Up!
Completed tasks struck out, changes/clarifications in red and new tasks in green.
Draft ‘Slippers & Chains Three’ (and give it a damn title!) by end of November 2015
- Publish ‘Slippers & Chains: Second Base’ on 21 November 2015
- List titles of ten Smexxy Snippets and have them arrayed for pre-order by end of December 2015
Targets for November 2015
Since Ileandra is working on NaNoWriMo and I just drafted a whole novella in 25 days (!!!), I figure it’s time to reel it back a bit. Plus, my goals are largely done now. All the big projects for the year are complete. Wheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! ^_^
- Create covers for and list the ten Smexxy Snippets I have planned. Have them up as pre-orders as far as Amazon and Smashwords will allow.
- Ensure the release of ‘Slippers & Chains: Second Base’ goes as smoothly as possible on 21 November.
Activities For This Fortnight
- Create and complete five Smexxy Snippet covers
- Release ‘Slippers & Chains: Second Base’ on CreateSpace
Thoughts . . .
I’m sooooo pleased with what I’ve achieved this year. It’s been incredible and there is still a whole month to go. I’m not sure what else I’ll pull out in that time, but there’s no reason why I couldn’t just have a month off!
After all, I still need to plan what I want to do next year. 😉
