Is it August 1st already? Where did the month go? It feels like we were celebrating the 4th just yesterday.
With a new month knocking on the door, I figured I would give a quick update on my writing. Last I posted, I set a goal to have part 1 of my current project published by my 43rd birthday on September 21st. I was shooting to get all the writing done by August 1st, and then turn it over to an editor. Well, I did get some writing done throughout the month of July, but I am no where close to getting it to an editor. If the world turned in an advantageous fashion for me, I could have the manuscript to a point that I could get it to an editor in a week. Say, Friday, August 9th. If they have it for a week, I could get it back by August 16th and make some changes. Give me the weekend to get that straight. I could shoot to get it to beta readers on August 19th. It should be a short enough read to hopefully get feedback back by August 26th. I could then do any rewrites and adjustments before doing a final edit look over. If I could get it back to my editor on September 2nd, I could hopefully get something back by September 9th. Give me a week to make any adjustments and another week to finalize a cover. That would make my deadline date at September 23rd.
Only a few days past my birthday. I think I could shave a few days off here and there. It looks like I will have a busy August and September!
