Which means that tomorrow, I start work on the two short stories I need to write, "Your Collar" and "Smile." And when those are done, I have a novella and a novel, both due. I'm not yet sure what order I mean to tackle those in--I may go after the novel first, just to get it done, because novellas are a lot less scary.
My watchword for the first half 2008 is discipline. I need to average a thousand words a day, and fifteen hundred would be better. And that has to have wiggle room built into it for CEMs, page proofs, and having a life. Though there may need to be some flexibility on the life front, though, it looks like.
After that, I can probably fall over. A little. Though there's still One-Eyed Jack & the Suicide King and By the Mountain Bound and The Sea thy Mistress to revise. And I am sure Chill will need revising too, once it's done.
Well, if it were easy, it would not be fun. Right?
