Over the past week, here’s what I’ve done for the sake of my fiction and poetry writing:
- Outlined four of the five acts of the audio drama that I’m currently working on;
- Worked out all of the climactic events for my perspective characters in Dekar 4 – except for the main female character;
- Begun to research some of the magazines I’m thinking of sending my short story to;
- Noted more story ideas.
By this week’s end I’ll have:
- Completed my research into magazines and made a short list of five to send my stories to;
- Sent my stories to the first magazine from this list;
- Written up and organized a chapter-by-chapter outline of Dekar 4;
- Written out the next act (4 scenes) of the audio drama I’m working on.
If you’re wondering why this second list is fairly similar to the to-do list from last week’s entry, my only excuse is that going to see Peter Gabriel in Toronto was a major distraction. In fact, here are the two highlights of the show (thanks to babyVantage and apc611 respectively):
This week’s distraction will be a jaunt out to see “Whose Live Is It Anyway” at the Center in The Square. All the same, I’ll have ample time for writing and planning, so I think that I’ll be able to make short work of this week’s to-do list.
Along with that, I’ll be posting my translation of the first verse (for real this week) of “Dum Diane vitrea” on Tuesday and of Beowulf’s final words on Thursday.
