It’s time to post an update on my writing for the 5 Year Project Do You Have Goals? blog hop. My goal is to write a novel (done) and get it published (working on it).
I’ve just finished editing chapter four of the final, final draft of the Orbital Contract. Feel ashamed not to have finished the whole novel by now, but I’ve been busy with the new grandbaby, dog walking, and enjoying Manchester.
In fact, I’m enjoying Manchester so much, my hubby and I have decided to buy a small apartment here. That way I can spend more time with our granddaughter, and enjoy city living, while keeping our family house in beautiful Stamford. The best of both worlds, I think.
As well as continuing to make slow progress on the Orbital Contract, I’ve achieved a number of other things over the past few months.
(1) Article Published
(2) Progress with blogging
I’ve edited several more articles for our Killer Cows website, and we’re finally beginning to see subtle changes in attitudes to the risks posed by cattle. Only small changes, but any move away from complacency is good. Hooray!
(3) SAGA pin-up girl!
Unfortunately, I feature in the printed edition and the article can’t be read online.
I feel much too young to be a SAGA pin-up, but I’m proud to be featured. The article has generated more interest in my blog, and resulted in a few more sales of my book, Walking the English Coast.
I wonder what everybody else has been up to in October?
Plans for November?
It’s NaNoWriMo month, of course. I’m planning to write the sequel to the Orbital Contract. Only got to come up with an exciting plot, flesh out some new characters, and write an outline plan in the next few days… should be a piece of cake!
