Here is what I’ll do…
No, ok, let me explain.
I’ve just finished the first Hope & Glory novelette, a 12.000-words thing that goes under the title of Glass Houses.
This is actually the second story in this new steampunk series, as I’ve yet to finish the first (somewhere in the fist week of May). There’s a total of six novelettes planned – I’ll write the lot, and then start publishing them with a regular, monthly schedule.
But that’s not what I wanted to talk about now.
What is going to happen is this – I’ll let the story rest for the whole afternoon, and then send it to my long-suffering editrix, for her to slash at it with her steely knives.
Then, starting tonight after dinner, I’ll begin outlining a 7000 words horror/noir story – there’s an open call and the deadline is May the 1st.
Tomorrow, starting at about 6 am, I’ll write the story, so that by tomorrow night I’ll have it finished in first draft.
Then I’ll let it rest, and the day after tomorrow I’ll revise it and send it to the publisher.
Then I’ll go back to my regular schedule.
To do this one-sitting writing thing, I’ll stay offline for the whole day.
So if tomorrow you don’t see me, or if I don’t reply to your emails, messages and tweets, it’s just because I’m chained to the keyboard, writing.
I’ll let you know how it goes.
