Writing Schedule

More weird dreams last night, including that it was the last day of school, my aunt and uncle had a mansion and my VP came over to the mansion and brought grapes. Who knows.

Last year I said I wouldn't do a writing schedule. This year I'm feeling overwhelmed, and I'd made one, but yesterday I revised it AGAIN. (Actually, this can be more fun than actually writing, ya know?)

See, I want to get something else to Samhain, because my editor says she has only a few fall dates open. So I'm revising a romantic suspense for that.

And I'm working on the story that I love. Though I'm stumped right now. And I have writer's cramp.

And I want to get my Wayback story written because the earlier I get it accepted, the less I have to worry about all the other people added in the town by the other books that are contracted, see? The series doesn't have a bible to start out, they're building it as they go.

So my plan is to have Vanished revisions finished by the end of February, Something to Talk About finished by mid-February and Wayback finished by the end of March (only 100 pages.)

Do you give yourself deadlines?

I have a February 15th deadline to get my proposal for my historical YA to my lovely potential agent, and I'm freaking out. However, chapter 1 is at least done, and I hope to finish chapter 2 by next week. Yikes! Plus I'm continuing to research along the way. Thanks for the heads up about Maureen and me!

I love deadlines! LOL... and, yeah, they can be more to create than the actual writing.

I thought about doing Wayback, but it overwhelmed me. So... good luck with it!

Goooooo, Elizabeth!!! You can do it!! Even as busy as you are ;)

You LOVE deadlines, Marianne? Hmmm, I'm starting to wonder about you....

I was overwhelmed by Wayback at first, but my cp's story is SO good, I was inspired to give it a shot. It may eventually overwhelm ;)
