Got to Love Them…
I wrote four short stories in the last week or so, got two more to do I found out today. Actually thought I only had one, but had missed one.
And in a wonderful meeting (wonderful because everyone at WMG Publishing is healthy and our offices are still there), I got a number of other deadlines set. When focused, I work great to deadlines, and at the moment I am focused on writing and exercise. So I should be fine.
My writing deadlines for the next month. (Yes, I do mean one month.)
— Two new original short stories.
— Introductions and author intros for Cat Book #6 and #7.
— Finish Cave Creek novel Card Sharp Silver and do a quick bible for the shared world.
— Finish new Cold Poker Gang novel called Bottom Pair.
— Put together and finish and turn in three Pulphouse collections, Twist of a Knife, Aliens Among Us, and Messed Up.
— Write the introduction to Pulphouse #10 special issue edited by Mark Leslie.
— Put together and do introductions for Pulphouse #11-13. And turn in.
— Put issues #45-50 together of Smith’s Monthly. And do introductions and turn in for copyediting.
That is a great amount, but very possible if I am focused, to get done by this time in October. Actually will be fun.
If you add that up, it’s 20 projects. All under deadline.
And walk/run about 6-8 miles a day on average.
