Following the excellent example of Joanne Phillips over at A Writer’s Journey, I am starting a weekly ‘To Do’ list. To be honest, I don’t expect it to contain much other than, ‘write chapter ten,’ then, ‘write chapter eleven’. But once Ash gets finished and I move into edits there should be more to do.
Also, before too long one of the entries will read: ‘Submit The Endless Circle to Harper Voyager’. Yes, that’s right, I’m hopping on their ‘open mic’ fortnight and hoping for the best. For those of you who don’t know, Harper Voyager (the speculative fiction imprint of HarperCollins) are opening their doors to any and all unsolicited, full-length manuscripts from 1st-14th of October. Now, I know this means my manuscript will be one of a tsunami of submissions washing through their offices in those two weeks — but if you don’t ask, you don’t get, so why not?
And on that note, is anyone else thinking of submitting at the same time? Got any thoughts or opinions on the subject? Have your say in the comments!
Oh, and I almost forgot:
To Do: 17/9 – 22/9
1. Write chapter ten of Coals of Fire: Ash.
That’s enough for now.
