Coming to a Close

Final edits and copies of Song of the Swallow are just about finished. Yay! Nice way to end the year.

In terms of other projects, I’ve been up and down. I managed to write 2 short stories, but have been unable to find suitable homes for them. One is a lighter type of story which is even more difficult to place, while the other has received a lot of positive personal rejections. I’ll continue to try to find homes for them.

I also managed to complete NaNoWriMo for the first time ever, which gave me a really horrible first draft of my novel. The horribleness is a gift in disguise. The changes I need to make are sending it in a different direction and making the overall story make more sense. I’m pleased with that.

I’m also working on two novellas while the novel stews for a bit.

All in all, a productive year even if I wasn’t able to place anything.

Sick with sinus problems which is slowing me down, but full speed ahead for the end of 2010!
