A short update today, because there isn’t too much to report on the writing front. I’m continuing my main focus on revising Guardian III, with a goal to finish this pass by the end of the month. So far I’m on track, despite being out of town last week.
It’s nice to polish up the story, and I’m also looking forward to finishing and doing some new writing in March. Newish writing, at least – my plan is to complete two short stories for an upcoming anthology I’m contributing to. After a couple months of revision, I’m finding myself with an itch to create something new – writing and revising are really two different things, especially revising this late in the process. I miss inventing…which may be why watching the BBC Pride and Prejudice
over the weekend sent my brain spiraling off on a sequel idea focused on Charlotte Collins (née Lucas) and possibly involving Mary Bennet and Anne de Bourgh.
Interesting? Crazy? I don’t know! Definite symptom of lots of time spent revising, and maybe a project for a future date. But for now I’m trying to stay focused on the revision–I have a trilogy to finish, after all. 🙂
