It’s time for another 12 x 12 update. As a 12 x 12 participant, I am writing 12 books over 12 months. May was another great month. I typed “The End” on my as yet untitled story of Terrence the Turkey, who designs a variety of costumes to fool Farmer Jones so he doesn’t wind up on the Thanksgiving Day table. I know it’s headed for a ton of edits, but I like the idea anyway. I also spent some time this month revising The Other Sister’s Story, which is Cinderella’s story as told from the point of view of one or her stepsisters. I think I might change the title to The Stepsister’s Story. This one has received such rave reviews from my critique group and an agent I showed the opening to, that I’m determined to submit it to an agent who might like this type of story. I have two in mind, but it’s getting together the query letter that always sidelines me.
For the month of June, I’m supposed to write The Candy Store, which is about a boy who dreams of owning a candy store. I got some inspiration from our recent trip to Disney, but I’m not feeling it yet. I’ll have to see if that changes. I think I might work on Easter Bunny Socks instead. I already have ideas for that one brewing.
Hope everyone has a great weekend.
Great goal-setting, Cheryl. I have to do that to ever complete anything. My books are longer, but my goal is to finish the edit of my next YA & get it to my alpha-readers by 6/8. I’m rolling. Good luck with yours.
Goals are definitely important for me, too, Janet. I put things off if I don’t have that goal staring me in the face. It’s part of why I decided to participate in 12 x 12 in the first place. Good luck on finishing your YA novel. I hope your muse is kind.
