Got Goals? Done and Dusted

Big Goals BloghopAt the beginning of the week, I released The Mothers; the fourth and final book of my Paper Duchess series. So that’s it. Goal complete. The quadrilogy is fully published.

I can’t quite believe I’ve written and published an entire series. It’s taken me two years, and I have learnt so much along the way (which you can read about here). I’ve already been implementing better practices for my next series, and learning from my mistakes.

So, with my initial goal now complete, what’s next? November sees me make another attempt at NaNoWriMo, and I’ll be starting on my next series; The Memory Trader series. This will be a trilogy, and it’s urban fantasy rather than dystopia. I’m really excited to get started on it, and I’ve spent October plotting and worldbuilding.

The Series Concludes with The Mothers Out Now

Got Goals? Slow and Steady

Big Goals BloghopJune has not been a bad month at all, writing-wise. As for real life, it’s been nothing short of turbulent. And it’s that reason that I’m not as far forward in my writing of The Mothers as I would have liked. But, real life happens, and sometimes, we have no choice but to make room for it.

But I’m moving forward, slowly but surely, and the first draft is about a quarter written now.

I’ve also been thinking a lot about my next series, for after I publish The Mothers, and I’ve had a good chat with my alpha reader, my husband. We came up with some great ideas, which has added in things that are going to be great fun to play with. I’m feeling much more sure of that now, and it’s nice to know where I’m heading after I finish The Paper Duchess series.

So, yeah, it’s just a case of carrying on, really. And hoping for a calm, quiet July with lots of writing time.
