With the holidays and the Christmas workload over, its time to get back to serious matters – writing! First resolution is finished! A dedicated branded website – welcome to dcdear.com! (I promise to stop using ! soon!) Second goal, the bane of many author’s, being active on social media. I have decided to go with a facebook page and a twitter feed. More news as they get up and running. BUT, the links are there.
On the right hand side of the page you will find the current status of what I am writing. The intent is to develop this into a tracking tool to include more information. Right now it is a simple list.
Tanner Kindly – is the project that started this all. Still working on getting a first draft done
Orunn and Jothin were the result of NaNoWriMo
What you don’t know about is the YA idea I am working on. Here are the two working log lines:
- After a High School Teacher discovers one of her students has found a flaw in Einstein’s theory of relativity, she must protect him from a corporation that wants to control him and build the first faster than light starship.
- A math student’s GF is mysteriously killed after a science fair where he demonstrates a flaw with Einstein’s Theory of Relativity. Now he must decide to trust either the military or his father’s business with the secret of space flight.
I am also looking at submitting flash fiction and stories. To do all this requires a schedule. Fortunately, one of my son’s requires driving to volleyball practices. While he practices, I will write. This should work out well. (He is at practice right now!)
But my main goal is to write every day. There is no reason that I can’t get up a little earlier and write for 20 minutes. NaNoWriMo taught me that I can a couple hundred words in 20 minutes – thank-you Edmonton NaNoWriMo’s
PS – the secret level goal is to get something published somewhere by January 6 2016. But don’t tell anyone its a secret!
Be Well – dcd
