This is a bit belated, but I’ve only recently gotten myself organized enough to determine what I want to write this year. It isn’t a complicated writing goal, just a heavy one. The following are the writing projects I want to have done by 31 December 2014:
Discordant Harmonies Ennealogy
The Power of Music III: Measure of Resistance – Currently working on outline, adding one plot card per scene written.
A Life of Note I: Counterpoints – Write outline and book.
A Life of Note II: Antiphons – Get outline written.
Touched by Kalia Duology (At this point, it’s only a duology. Waiting to see how long that actually lasts.)
Book I: Unwritten Letters – Currently working on outline; trying to get two plot cards a day.
At least title book 2.
Sense of Balance Trilogy
Book I: Exemplar – Do research necessary on it and at least finish outline.
Autocrat’s Rise Trilogy
Back from the Dead – Keep up with this project’s Two-Year Novel course exercises and finish book before end of year, perhaps write at least part of it during Nano.
Right now, I’m in a severe writing downswing. Severity in the length of time it’s been around, not depth of down it is. I’m still actually able to work on various other aspects of my writing and have had a few odd days of writing and plot card progress, but not much. Those days are sporadic at best, so I’m not counting on them. I think it’s Real Life stress getting to me, which I probably shouldn’t be surprised about, considering. I’m actually surprised this hasn’t happened sooner. This downswing began on about 15 January this year, and it’s lasted over a month so far. It probably won’t go away for at least a few days yet (much as I hope otherwise).
