Short Stories, Poems and Novels

It's taken me a week to get into the mindset to write again.


I'm going to start writing again. I want to go through my old work from two months ago and re-edit them all. Doors was rejected by Jabberwocky, so I'm going to spend some time and re-edit it, and try and add as much dimension and conflict as possible. It's pretty confusing and doesn't make a whole lot of sense, so a new ending is in order. My short story Hearse for my Heart is still out, but I really want to just edit it--it definitely isn't ready for publication.

I also want to focus on some poetry. I need to re-learn the meaning and impact of words and word choice.

My novel has started, I think I posted about that earlier, but I'm going to throw a word count meter on here to show my progress daily.

I need to remember that my editing eye needs to be limited if I'm ever going to finish the novel.

I'm reading Inkspell by Cornelia Funke, and I picked up some Pratchett and Carrie Ryan's debut, In the Forest of Hands and Teeth.

It's gotten some great reviews, and I can't wait to read it! :]

Sorry this post has been so monotone, but I think it's just me listing what I need to do today. :D
