While the rest of the world holds its collective breath for the oncoming Potterdammerung, here’s what I have on tap this weekend:
Revise short story to under 10k words.
I took another editing pass through the story earlier this week and brought it under 11k; every pass through the story seems to pull out about 500 words.
ETA (Saturday afternoon): The latest editing pass has the story at 10,290.
ETA (Saturday evening): Done. The story now sits at 9,999 words.
Write bio to accompany short story.
In spite of how little I like writing about myself, I find I actually have five or six things I want to say in this author’s bio…
ETA (Saturday evening): Done. The bio gives a shout-out to writers Glenn Hauman and Lisa Sullivan—we discussed the story at Philcon back in November, and Lisa especially gave me some pointers on what to think about.
- Perform beta read on friend’s novel.
- Put words down on mystery novel.
No time like the present…
See, not everything in the world revolves around Harry Potter. 🙂
