More planning and brainstorming and revising this week than actual new words, but a couple of stories completed, lots of submissions done. Oh, and I signed the contract with my publisher for my first novel. So, that happened…
I logged my goals on the UWR online retreat page, then finalised both Missing Out and Secret Admirer, after some excellent additional feedback from Dave.
Then I submitted both of them, along with a few other stories for calls that opened today.
I wrote a book review.
I did some more submissions and enough Scribophile critiques to get my points up over five again, so I could post a new story if I wanted.
Later, I signed the contract with my publisher for Artisan!!!
I also assigned a story idea to the subconscious crew, asking them to come up with a way to move forwards with it on Saturday morning.
The subconscious crew outdid themselves, coming up with a ton of really interesting ideas for my horror story, and completely changing it from its previous version. I wrote some notes to plan it out.
I also went through all my upcoming submission plans and worked out either ideas for new stories or ideas for how to adapt old stories to fit.
I planned out some more submissions and also set my goals for tomorrow’s online retreat.
I also made some notes for my WIP Big Bang story, and wrote the first few words of the new opening to my horror story, now renamed Suffering in Silence.
