The Lion, The Witch and the To-Do List. August 17, 2011

Posted by Elizabeth Schechter in 2011 plans, a-writers-life-is-never-dull, Ta-da, to-dos, writing.

Well, I accomplished my summer goals — two days past my deadline. But I’m okay with that. This afternoon, I finished the worldbuilding for Tales from the Arena. So now, I’m letting Danielle take a look at it, poke it with a stick, and see if I left anything out. While she does that, I’ll get my head back into Drum Mage and start editing what I have so that I can get back to work.

And there’s a new task on the list — revising Nomad’s Moon, the High Fantasy novel that I wrote with Danielle Jones. After a year and a half in the queue, Baen passed on it. It is, however, still out with another, smaller press. So we’ll see what they say, and then see if we need to revise.


To Revise:

  • Nomad”s Moon (?) — Wait for response from small press

To Write:

  • Drum Mage
  • Playing For Keeps (short story to launch Tales from the Arena)
  • The Willow Sword
  • Sea Prince (To be written with Danielle Jones)
  • Wanderer’s Moon (next book in the Midnight Moon series. Not to be done until we sell Nomad’s Moon)

To Outline

  • Coral Throne (sequel to Sea Prince)
  • Hidden Things (Mystere Book 1)
  • Blood and Gaslight (Mystere Book 2)
  • Ashes and Light (Mystere Book 3)
  • Tablets of Stone (Mystere Book 4)
  • Rainbow Wars (the teach-in idea. Definitely a  YA. And it needs a better title)
  • As-yet-untitled Steven and Nick book. Sequel to Drum Mage.

To Sell

  • Nomad’s Moon
  • Exile’s Moon
  • Silk Skin (short story)
  • House of Sable Locks
