Going to Ground (Soonish)

I realized today that when I get back home on Thursday, I am going to need to be "head's down" on the writing stuff I want to accomplish by the end of the year. That's going to mean less of a presence online in IM and blog. It's hard to blog in a coherent and interesting fashion when full out novel writing. At least, it is for me.

Also, my "To Do" lists usually amuse me during this time period. This is what it looks like right now:

TO DO - This Week (As in finish by Saturday when I get home late on Thursday)
- WW proposal email to [WW editor]
- Edit Grants Pass stories (New ones, my final story, etc...)
- 3 for 300 story
- TEoP/Kendrick for September (Has not been started yet)
- Email [Amazon editor]

TO DO - Next Week
- Finish Redlines on [Catalyst Cycle novel #1]
- Edit [Catalyst Cycle novel #1]
- Email edited/updated [Catalyst Cycle novel #1] to [Agent I'm wooing]
- Finish outlining [Catalyst Cycle novel #2]
- 3 for 300 story
- TEoP/Kendrick for October (Yes, this will be way early. That's the point. I'm in Hawaii for much of October)
- Write [Catalyst Cycle novel #2] (Obviously, this will be ongoing)
- Do Amazon stuff (Whatever this turns out to be)

After all of the travel and stuff, I am looking forward to this period of focused work.
