A lovely gift of mini books from my fantastic publisher!

A lovely gift of mini books from my fantastic publisher!

There is much going on, and yet time stretches like taffy this early in the new year. Every day a treasure, a box not yet opened, a bit of gold that spills slowly through the palms and onto the floor. I have no idea what the year will bring, so I show up at the desk and do the words and there we are, the words and me, sitting together, wrestling really, in the low streams of afternoon light.

I am writing in 2014. And that is the best there is.

Yesterday’s Words:
1,500 non-fiction, 1,000 gaming.

Today’s Words:
1,5000 non-fiction, 1,000 gaming.

The Year of Life:
Oh my gosh. You can’t even see my 5,000 words in the larger context of what I hope to accomplish this year. But they’re there. Honest.

My 42 Writing Projects This Year: 

4. The Ninth World Guidebook 0/80,000
3. Numenera Character Options 0/20,000
2. Izaltu’s Needle (Numenera glimmer) 2,200/8,000
1. Kinky Rewrite (non-fiction book) 46,000/60,000


Kiss kiss bang bang, s.

    Sounds like a great goal, Shanna! I know you can do it.

    Brandon Sanderson has little progress bars on his website for his different projects. http://brandonsanderson.com/ I don’t know how hard it is to put those on a site, but it would be fun to see your bars fill up!

    Let me know if there are any projects/products you’d like me to promote on my podcasts. I’d be happy to get the word out!
