Some Early Resolutions - Thank You Contest Still Ongoing

Not much left to the year, is there?

Perhaps it's time for some resolutions - writing related ones, of course!

Let's see if I can break this down month by month for Out of the Water:

January - a relaxed month for edits, but more research is needed

February - tying up loose ends; finding missing names, filling in square brackets, lots more research

March - ramped up edits; checking the themes, imagery, character arcs, and so on

April - possibly another houseparty on the forum! A good time to put the MS aside a little and let it breathe.

May - pick up Out of the Water again. Panic a little. Edit some more. Polish some more.

June - am I ready for betas? Or shall I really put the book aside? Maybe, gasp, start work on the three or four other ideas swilling about in my brain?

July - time to decide. Betas or bust!

August - possible feedback from betas. Good or bad, it'll mean more edits and rewrites, no doubt.

...and I think I'll stop there. Doesn't do to think too far ahead, for things inevitably don't pan out quite the way you'd expect. I can't wait to be able to say, yes this book is ready for sharing with others!
