Well, May and June turned out to be very good months when it came to publication!
My short story, “Pandjieswinkelgoed”, appeared in the 22 June 2018 issue of Vrouekeur and this was the first print magazine short story that I’ve sold. Huzzah!
I now also have two article on The Mighty under my belt — the second of which has almost 500 likes! I did not expect that…
WIPs — Porselein and The Knowledge Stones
Believe it or not, I am still busy with my outline for Porselein. It is taking longer than I thought, simply because of the worldbuilding that’s going into it.
The Knowledge Stones is still not finished. Alas, I had really thought that it would be done by now. I’m not going to rush it and give a mediocre thing for everyone to read, though. And I’m adding quite a few extra scenes throughout the story, so keep your eyes peeled!
SASMARS 2018, aka the medieval conference
Of course, I shouldn’t forget that I still need to finish my paper for SASMARS in August… While I’m well on my way, I am struggling a bit with putting everything in a structure that works for me. So, at the moment, I’m stuck with lots of notes and bits and pieces that I have to join up properly.
I am greatly looking forward to the conference, being back at Mont Fleur, and meeting some old and new faces!
Camp NaNoWriMo, July 2018
After the dismal performance that was Camp NaNoWriMo April 2018, I hope that this Camp will go better. Actually, it has to go better otherwise I’m in big trouble time-wise. For this Camp my plan of action is:
- Finishing The Knowledge Stones
- Finishing Rememberer of gods and kings for SASMARS
- Finishing the outline and worldbuilding for Porselein and writing at least three chapters.
Are you taking part in Camp NaNoWriMo? I’d love to hear what you’ll be working on!
