Quick writing update:
- I have outlines for both projects done.
- My co-author and I are starting to split up work on the co-authored project. I rattled off a few ideas I had in my head to help get the writing flowing.*
- My solo project isn't actually contracted yet, but I assume it will be, so I've started pulling my notes together on it.
My approach generally is to turn the outlines into an editable document and just pour in seperately-written sections, or write directly into the ms (manuscript) as I go. So I really have an ms ready to go from the time I turn in the outline.
I wish I could report more, but really, that's all I have so far. Thins should be more clear in a couple of months.
* Something Michael Suileabhain-Wilson taught me - a bad sentence is more than halfway to a good sentence. So I write down *anything* I think might be useful, no matter how poorly, and go from there.
