Writing Update Jan 2

It's the start of the new year and I've made some hefty writing goals for myself. I plan to continue using to get at least 750 new words written daily. I'm currently using that daily writing to work on my Steampunk Mystery, Working Title: Greased Gears. I'm also back to working on this year's NaNoWriMo. I'm starting slowly with some rereading and basic edits of little problems that the rush of NaNoWriMo created. I'm also starting to fill in some more detail and character development which is sorely lacking in my very rough draft. I am also getting back to work on my NaNoWriMo 2009 story which needs to be re-outlined and rewritten to fit the new setting I created for the story. In addition to these novel length works, I'm also planning to work on some short stories including an entry for the Steampunk Shakespeare anthology.

Writing Goals for 2011:
  • Second and Third Drafts of "Working Title: Hive Mind" (NaNoWriMo 2010)
  • First and Second Drafts of "Working Title: Greased Gears"
  • Outline to Final Draft of Steampunk Shakespeare
  • Outline and First Draft of "Working Title: Magicless World" (NaNoWriMo 2009)
  • Outline and First Draft of "Working Title: Zombies Vs Unicorns"
  • Outline Sequel to Hive Mind
