Well, I got the spiders revised by Sunday, and haven’t done much in the way of writing since then, so the time has come to post another goal…a brand new story by August 27th. I haven’t picked out an idea yet, but I do have a few things swirling around in my head.
I’m hoping to set up a pattern for myself where I alternate between writing something new and revising the stories I wrote at Clarion. That way I’ll always have something to do while the fresh stories sit for a bit, and I’ll always have a backlog of stories that need revising. Or that’s the theory anyway. I’m a bit nervous actually about trying to write something new now that the workshop is over (quite possibly because several people told me ‘don’t worry if you don’t write for six months after the workshop’). Revisions didn’t bother me, but then again, revisions don’t start with a blank white screen.
