Deadline 1: Got the GREEN MAGIC proposal off to Robin a couple days ago, heard back from her yesterday with revision requests (very small—overall, she was excited about the proposal), made the revisions over a couple of hours yesterday and resent the complete package, and that will go off to the editor, possibly today.
Deadline 2: I have Writer’s X’s manuscript (very good story) down to one small final section, and then I’ll do the overall crit letter. I’m still good to have that in the mail on the 15th.
Deadline 3: Next comes completion of THE RUBY KEY. I’ve been dreaming segments of this lately, always a sign that my subconscious is ready to play nice. I’ll start into that on Tuesday, and with that, will resume more regular posting, chronicling the progress of the story, plus the usual off-topic stuff.
Not looking any farther forward than Deadline 3 at the moment. I know 4: Hawkspar rewrite, and 5: 2nd 60,000-word YA, are out there. But for the moment, everything is giving the pleasant illusion of being under control and on time, so I’ll just enjoy that while I can.
