Old Woman Afraid Of Her Manuscripts

Just so I have it all in one place: stuff I need to do.


*Finish going through the manuscript for Dust, make the (thank you universe) mostly light changes, corrections, and edits, and then type them in and send them to my Beloved Editor.
*Catch up on the reading I owe truepenny.

Before Readercon:

*Finish revising "Shoggoths in Bloom," including a new title. Then go through the half-ream of critical notes again and give it a final pass polish. Then figure out if it's SFy enough to send to Nature.
*Read the rest of the Viable Paradise slush.

This week:

*See my massage therapist and get to the gym at least three times this week. (Tuesday Thursday Friday?)

Before Bearcon*:

*Finish revising All the Windwracked Stars? Please?
*Write an urban fantasy short. Probably "King Pole, Gallows Pole, Bottle Tree," if I can figure out what it's about beyond a circus, Hoover Dam, and the Great Depression.
*Finish revising The Novels Formerly Known As The Stratford Man? At the very least, start revising it. Whether I have an editor or not.

Before Viable Paradise:

*Read submissions for critique.

Before the End of the Year:

*Write Bone & Jewel Creatures
*Start writing Chill, aka Jacob's Ladder II

Before the Middle of 2008:

*Finish Chill (due April 15. Tax day is doubly fun in Bearlandia.)
*Finish Secrit Novella Projekt

Oh no not me
I never lost control
You're face to face with the man who sold the world

Also, interspersed with this on an as-needed basis: conventions, workshops, sex, drugs, rock and roll, and galleys/proofs/CEMs/revisions.

Thank God for Google Calendar. What did I forget?

*August 18th, aka my signing at Bakka Books in Toronto in August, with conflated Hanging Around with Friends.
