April Goals

I’m home from a fantastic time at Ad Astra in Toronto, look for a roundup post on my time at the convention soon.

My goals for April will look a little familiar if you’ve been reading along…

In any case, here they are:

  • Reread Tombstone Blues and make notes relevant to Book 3. Start writing.
  • Transcribe my notebook (which has gotten well out of hand)
  • Edit and submit one of my recently drafted short stories.
  • Edit and submit one of my previously drafted short stories.

How did I do in March?

  • Finish prepping for my workshop in Thompson.
  • Reread Tombstone Blues and make notes relevant to Book 3.
  • Transcribe my notes.
  • Edit and submit one of my recently drafted short stories.
  • Edit and submit one of my previously drafted short stories.

Not bad. Not great.

A week of sickness right as I was hitting the crunch of prepping for a workshop and editing an anthology of my students’ work was not timed the best. However, every now and then your body just shuts down to remind you that you are not an invincible robot gladiator (yet).

I’d really been hoping to get my new fantasy noir story out, but sadly it was not to be. In my illness I also misremembered a deadline for submissions and so one of the markets I’d hoped to submit the story to has closed. But there are, and always will be, other markets.

I also did an “unofficial” hour of writing a day run in March, I’ll also be posting about that soon.

Write on!
