January 2019 Project Update

Happy Thursday!

Today's post is going intended to be short - just a quick status update on a couple of my bigger writing projects. It's been awhile since I've shared anything here or on my social media pages, and one of my goals for this year is to do a better job of communicating these updates. Expect to see these once every few months moving forward.

All right - now to dive in...

The Switch Series

After a longer break than I care to admit, I've gotten back to work on the first book in the Switch Series (tentatively called Izzy and the Safari Switch) this month, and am about 25% of the way through with the second draft. My goal is to have it complete between the end of February and the middle of March.

Cover idea I've been playing around with for book #1 -
obviously far from complete

What about the rest of the series? Well...

I've started writing book two, although I've only written a few chapters so far. Because I'm working on the second draft of the first book, the earliest I will be able to get back to this story is mid-to-late March the beginning of April, which may or may not coincide with Camp NaNoWriMo (I tried searching for the 2019 dates, but I'm now confused about what is going on with it). 

As excited as I am about the first story in this series, I'm as excited (if not more so) for this next one. I think it's going to be good.

Also, I do have a general outline for the series as a whole. I know where I want it to begin and end, and some ideas I want to explore over the course of the series. I've left room in the outline for other ideas as they come up, so the number could grow from the six or seven I have planned right now.

The Memory Bank Chronicles

This is a series of novellas I've been writing off and on for a while. I'm happy to say that the first drafts are complete for all of the stories in this series. When I finish with the second draft of Izzy and the Safari Switch, I'll get back to work on this project - sometime between late February and the middle of March. 

Hopefully, I'll be able to get the second draft of the first novella whipped into shape and ready for that third round of edits by the beginning of April.

What else is on the horizon?

Right now, not much. Outside of the blog, The Memory Bank Chronicles and The Switch Series are the projects I'm concentrating on at the moment. I may slide a short story or two out in the meantime, but I'm not sure where, when, or what those stories would be.
