Date: Jan 6-12, 2019

What have I been working on?

Wrote a short piece called “In Memory Of” (1566 words). This piece won’t be a Patreon story, because I want to start a pile of work for submission purposes.

What’s in Edits right now?

Haven’t gotten back in the editing chair yet. Planned edits:

  1. WK2T fixes due to KOTB novella
  2. CWP4AM edits that I never finished (or started).
  3. I’m shelving “Obsession” at the moment because I don’t want to relive that story anymore.

Publication Research:

See Plans for the Week

Anything submitted?

Nope!

Anything Else to Share?

Finally feeling better. Got some writing done this week on “In Memory Of.” Getting inspired to write other short stories aside from Patreon ones.

Plans for the Week:

  1. Pick 5 places to submit to and read their submission guidelines.
  2. Add to February Patreon story (currently in progress)
  3. Work on WK2T edits.

Nothing. Still recovering from being sick.

What’s in Edits right now?

Nothing.

Publication Research:

None.

Anything submitted?

Nope.

Anything Else to Share?

Not a great start to the year, especially since one of my monthly goals is to complete 5 submissions. Being sick sucks!

I did get an idea for a short story. Jotted down some notes. Once I feel better I’ll begin fleshing it out.
