Small Spaces, Big Plans

No more work for 17 days!!! Woo-Hoo! Excited, some.

I have big plans writing wise for my 17 days holiday. I want to write stories for the following anthologies:

The Book of Tentacles - 771 words in so far.
Cinema Spec - have my title and an idea of where I'm going to go with it.
Dark Jesters
Footprints
Mother Goose is Dead
Clockwork Phoenix 2
Infradead
Catastrophia

Plus...
Hotel Guignol

And if I've got time - which looking at the above I'd have to say no I won't - I'd like to try and write something for the new ezine The Morrigan.

*I should add - I want to write the stories but don't expect to be able to both write and edit them all in that time because that would be just stupid!!! I've just kicked myself to reinforce that fact.

Adding to that decorating a very small room - actually so small it has no right to call itself a room - and maybe even taking some time out to read or visit the seaside (assuming it ever stops raining) and maybe even shop. I need a toaster. I love toast and I don't own a toaster - go figure!

It looks like you and I went to look at Duotrope at the same time...

Good luck with all of those!

Ditto, Mark. There are always more anthologies than time. :)

Thanks, Brenda.

I haven't done it yet. :) But I'll claim my title in 17 days if I manage it ;)

Wow! Quite an agenda. If I got just one done, I'd feel pretty good.

Have fun on your holiday! I wish I had 17 days off in a row. Of course, I know I'd just waste 16 of those days playing video games and reading, and spend the last day frantically trying to get everything done.

I've started off well but have a feeling if it stops raining my plans will go downhill fast...

I need to move abroad so that I too can take 17 day writing vacations. Best of luck with this!
