Weekly Writing Update (2/17-23/2019)

I’ve been busy this week! Whoa!

What have I been working on?

  1. Edited and uploaded March Patreon story
  2. Finalizing the Chronicle proposal: Market Analysis (which wasn’t easy)
  3. Wrote the sample chapter for proposals
  4. Changed the Storey proposal to A to Z Knitting and put that together.
  5. Go Travel article about a couple of restaurants near the Pantheon.

What’s in Edits right now?

  1. Edited March Patreon story before uploading
  2. Edited Sample Chapter of A to Z Knitting Stories before adding it to proposal packet

Publication Research:

I found out that Page Street Publishing has become a Vanity Publisher, so I’ve sub-ed in Gibbs Smith Publishing and have been working on a proposal packet for them.

Anything submitted?

  1. Submitted A to Z Knitting Stories proposal to Storey Publishing
  2. Submitted A to Z Knitting Stories proposal to Chronicle Books

Anything Else to Share?

Went to my first planner meet up this past Sunday (24th). That was interesting.

Plans for the Week:

  1. Finish Pantheon Eats article and submit.
  2. Square One & Gibbs Smith proposals…they’re getting the same book, just need to DO it.
  3. Bobbin Lace history chapter
