Putting Hold on First Drafts

As much as I love writing new novels, there comes a time when I need to get focused on a few novels in order to get my goals accomplished. Plus, I work so much my writing time is very limited, so I made the decision.

While I'm working two jobs, no more working on first drafts. I need to focus my limited time on the novels that are past the first draft stage. Plus I figured that the adult mutant series would be okay if it is sent out sooner instead of later. That's encouraging at least.

Novels I will work on:
Standing Ground
Tattle Tell
Hellenic Distractions

Do you work on more than one project?
How do you find balance with work, writing and other life things?

July Goals

I can't believe it's already July. This past month has sure been something. Spent almost a week near the beginning of the month in Washington DC for a wedding. Worked some, searched for more jobs and landed two new jobs. And I did make some progress in writing. So, lets start with the June recap, then I'll get to the July goals (JulNoWriMo!)

June Recap

Tattle Tell rewrite - Surprise! After several months of making this goal I actually finished the second draft. Yay me!

Finish 3 books - Not quite. Got about two done but got distracted from reading. July should be tough with reading too.

Rewrite/Edit Standing Ground - not quite. Did work on it a little at least.

Continue T/K and A/D - Did get some work done and T/K but don't worry. I'm working on both during July.

July Goals

July Novel Writing Month Challenge
Write 50,000 words total from three novels.
- Lighting the Wall
- Angel/Demon
- Thomas/Kyle

Finish reading 3 books.

Sleep occasionally and still survive the two jobs.

What are your goals for July?
