Fall Writing Challenge Goals!

It should come as no surprise to learn I'm joining another writing challenge! The YA Buccaneers are kicking off their Fall Writing Challenge, and I'll be checking in weekly on Twitter - but I thought I'd list my goals here, for the sake of accountability! (Plus, let's face it, I really like making lists.)
  • Finish drafting Shiny New WIP (aka A1 - real title will be revealed in time! *muahaha*). This is Book 1 in the series I plotted out this summer, and is adult urban fantasy set on an alternative Earth in which our world is one of many in an ever-expanding Multiverse, and a not-so-secret organisation defends the Earth against various magical and non-magical threats. Add in two extremely stubborn protagonists from opposing worlds, a centaur, a wyvern and murder mystery, and you have the book I've always dreamed of writing!
  • Edit Shiny New WIP and send to CP's/beta readers - I'm aiming to do this around the end of October/November, if I can get the draft finished before the end of September. If anyone's interested in beta-ing, please feel free to let me know! I realise this is quite soon after my last book, but I've a completely different plan for this one... and let's just say there will be rewards. :)
  • Draft two novellas (both are already started - one's over half-finished, one's probably 1/3 done). I may have Secret Plans for them, too! ^_^
  • NaNoWriMo - most likely, this will be Shiny New Series Book 2! Something always happens to interrupt NaNo (like 4 lots of edits last year... yeah. o.O) But I live in hope that I'll actually win the challenge this time!

  1. Okay, sign me up RIGHT NOW for beta reading that Shiny New WIP! Sounds amazing :D I am planning on doing NaNo, but I'll definitely be up for beta reading when I have the time.

    Good luck!

    1. Yay! *dances* I'm hoping to send it out to betas in October (at the rate I'm drafting, it should be beta-ready by then!), so I'll be sure to let you know! ^_^
