April was a productive month for me, for which I am really happy about!
- polished off one submission that was included in an anthology with 7 other writers to have pitched for publication.
- finished/polished off a YA LGBT short story, and submitted it to an open call.
- worked with a short story I wrote a year ago. It had been written for an open call, but not picked up. Edited and submitted it to a different open call with similar themes, since it’d just been sitting there untouched for a year. Happy to send it out into the world again!
- started on the original fiction novel, which is a YA LGBT urban fantasy. Chapter 1 is done at 7K!
Everything is still in ‘status pending’ or WIP mode, but I’m actually quite thrilled with how I managed my writing time against my work time and with the progress I made.
May = keep plugging away at the Novel. I would love to have the one done by the end of the summer. So we’ll see how that goes!
