Progress XXVIII

Slow progress on Contraband, practically (totally) stopped on the type-up of 3's Company, so that's something that will be taking up most of my time in the near future. Not quantitative progress as in 'x' no. of new words, but it will be progress all the same.

Musn't go off the boil! Especially as I have plans for 5 other pieces, of varying lengths, between now and December to satisfy specific calls for submissions. Then, of course, there are those pieces already paused and languishing in a flash drive dungeon, waiting for me to release them and have at them once more.
I have a chart to give me an idea of what should be started and when, as well as to highlight which pieces of work will need to be written at the same time as something else. It's actually been quite useful, so I shall certainly do something similar next year.


  1. Wow, Merry, you are going to be so busy over the next several months! Way to go :D I do think it's wonderful that you have everything planned out so well and that you're taking on the challenge with so much grace.

    Hope you're able to get back on track with 3's Company, it sounds like a great one :)

  2. Thanks for that, Elle.
    Having a plan is a start - it's sticking to it that gives me gyp (road to hell/ good intentions etc.)
    I know what I need to do, I just need to plan my 'home' time so that a portion is allocated to writing each evening, as well as the 40 minutes I get at lunchtime.

    How's it going with you?
