I am Stalled

Here is an update on my goals.

The Good News

I have stayed up to date on review my critique partners work. My philosophy has been not to push it off and do it as soon as possible. That way it does not pile up and become over whelming.

And I have been able to keep up on the revision notes I have received for Shadow Stones (mostly because they have been trickling in.)

I only think about my submission to Shadow Publishing once a day - when I check the mail. So that is being patient right? I am also considering not submitting to the next publisher right away because I will be attending some conferences this year and want to have my MS available to show people.

The Bad News

My reading isn't going well. I am trying to only read one book at a time so I can focus on it. Currently I am reading The Castle of Llyr which is the third book in the Prydain series. However it has been difficult for me to get through it because my head is full of my WIP and the voice of the Prydain book clashes with it. Kind of weird - it has never happened to me before.

And I am stalled on my WIP. I finished writing the first three chapters. I really struggled with chapter 3. Then I was in the editing phase and was really struggling. The problem is I need to completely re-write chapter 3 - again. So that was holding me up. The good news is I think once I re-write chapter 3 I should be able to get things flowing again.

How are your goals going?


  1. So far, so good...but I'm only six days into the new year. We'll see if I can keep up my writing pace.

  2. It's okay to be a little anxious about your book submission. I would be.

    And I'm with you - I am completely stalled on my WIP. I haven't worked on it in weeks. Just give it a little time.

  3. I'm stalled too. Let's have a pity party tonight ;)
