Then there was New Zealand Spec Fic Blogging week - I DID achieve my goal of 7 blogs in 7 days, being 7 drabble episodes of a self contained story...but my novel writing slid a little.
And then I reached a bit of a big ending to the first chapter of my novel - and I really had to grind out 500 or so awful words to get going on that bit...and haven't been able to get back to it since.
The status now - NZ won the Rugby World Cup (at last), they had a victory parade through Wellington this lunchtime, and I have plugged away at my Mars story.
Goals for November
- Finish that last bit of the first chunk of The Power (maybe a thousand or so words).
- Write the 2nd chapter of The War on Mars (2 or 3 thousand words?).
- Finish editing the horror story for the anthology and submit.
- Watch less TV.
