WIP: Lucy Baxter and The Evil Emporium (rewrite) - 2970 words (not counted in months count)
May, otherwise known as 'The Unintentional Short Story Month'. I completed four short stories: Ascending the Impossible Tree, Blanket Skies & Silhouettes, The Shelf Life of Stars, and The Sound of Sharp Voices; and one flash story: A Blood-Spattered Letter from Mr. Grim.
Yesterday, I delved back into my first MG, 'Lucy Baxter and The Evil Emporium' and I am in the process of revising it. It's bizarre, scary and lower MG in length - just to ensure myself a rocky ride along the agent path. I'm hoping to spend no more than 10 days smarting it up and fixing the synopsis. *Shudder*. Then I'll settle down to write one of the books that are calling to me... I have 4 MGs, 2 YAs and 1 dark science fiction novella that I want to write. Yeah, good luck with that.
