Who knows this better than doers? The inventor designing the next big thing. The engineer designing the next big technological advancement. The writer working on their novel.
Working on the Birth of a Novel angle, MINGLED is in the next stage of the process. With the first draft done, it is time to organize, reorganize, shift, add and take a little away from the gathering of words. Then off for it's first round of beta reviews. I hope to get this done by mid-next week. It's a lofty goal, but I'll see if I can make it happen.
I'm still working on goals for March 2012 - almost done and will post them on my #writemotivation page in the next day or two.
As for the goals for February 2012:
1: Complete first draft of MINGLED and continue first draft of UNCOMMON - First half done. Second half, not so much2: Post 3 blogs a week - Done!
3: Read 3 books - Almost done. Read and reviewed Everneath for my 2012 YA/MG Debut Author Reading Challenge, completed The Book Thief and am almost done with Send One Angel Down.
4: Comment to other blogs, at least 20 to 25 a week. - Done!
I want to thank everyone who commented on Friday. It's a whole lot of us who would love to visit New Zealand. If I could afford it, I'd make my way there quick, fast and in a hurry :-) Also, you guys gave me some interesting input regarding the good/bad attraction. Gives me some interesting stuff to work with.
Now, something else that has me curious. Would you consider taking a dive into a genre that you're not familiar with if the novel idea came to you begging to be told?
