Making Plans for Fall 2017

It’s August already! The year has really been flying by.

Since fall is just around the corner, I thought I should start making some plans for what I would like to accomplish with my writing during the final months of the year. Some of my plans involve staples of the fall season for writers, but others should be completely new and exciting.

I’ll be participating in NaNoWriMo, of course. Right now it looks like I’ll be a NaNoRebel again this year. Inbetween is still going strong. I doubt I’ll reach the conclusion of the first draft before November 1. I’m not sure if Inbetween will still have another 50,000 words to go by the time we reach November, but if I finish up the story, I have plenty of other ideas for things to write. If it looks like Inbetween is winding down, I’ll just have to start outlining something new in October.

In September I plan to start writing a new draft of The Dreams. I’m working on the outline for this new draft now. This rewrite will be a Patreon exclusive while I am writing it. My hope is that posting it to a smaller audience of interested individuals will give me the courage to really leave my comfort zone while writing this draft. Looking back over the version I posted, I can tell I was really pulling my punches for certain scenes. I’d like to change that. If you’re interested in following this new evolution of my first serial, be sure to join me on Patreon.

Sometime this fall I’ll also resume my efforts to record a serial audiobook version of The Dreams. The summer thwarted my attempts to record, but once the temperatures are cooler I should be able to close off a room enough to make recording possible. There will be more news about the ETA of this project once I’m able to start recording.

Do you have any projects planned for the fall? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!

  1. I’ve got a few plans for the fall. Things like getting married and participating in NaNoWriMo as usual. I’m going to start a new story this year, but I don’t know what it will be. No clue. At all.

    I’m hoping to write more regularly and maybe finish this round of edits for my story Unexpected Moments. *fingers crossed*

    • Congratulations on getting married soon!

      I’m sure you’ll come up with an idea before November. NaNoWriMo usually does a pretty good job of getting me to write consistently if I lost my routine. Good luck with your edits!

      • Making a writing routine is hard! It’s the sort of routine that is 75% internal. From the outside you can only see the 25% that is sitting down and typing/writing words, but there is a lot of effort that has to go into cultivating and maintaining the mindset that makes it possible to sit down and create every day.

      • Or knowing that you need to be up at a certain time each day or night to do said writing and typing. That’s where part of my problem comes from I think. My schedule is sporadic so I’m not always x to x, sometimes x to x, x to a, x to d, etc. Then there’s the random meeting here and there. Heh… I might have a way though.
