The Night Palace
Progress report: Wrote 400 words in story and outlined further into the climax. I’ve gotten my characters into a wonderful mess and I overestimated the power of my existing conclusion to get them out of it.
Current word count: 6,872
Short term goals: Research methods for killing or banishing demons and evil spirits in Middle Eastern mythology/folklore.
Long term goals: Complete story. Edit and cut to under 10,000 words, and submit for publication.
Progress report: Nothing transcribed from current draft, but Matt and I spent an evening working out a functional history for the story’s universe. Session was recorded so I can revisit it.
Short term goals: Transcribe current draft from spiral notebook before all my writing becomes illegible.
(Very) Long term goals: Complete a draft.
Random poetry news: 3 were edited and sent out this week. The magazine I submitted to has a 2-6 week wait period until I hear back about them. Meanwhile, I’m looking into more publications if this one rejects me and editing two other poems for eventual submission to another pub.
Flash fiction: I found a place that publishes flash fiction and pays per story. Currently expanding Business Transactions into an actual story instead of a potential-story-idea-wordy-thing. Hope to finish it this week.
