Perhaps my largest summer project is the work I'm doing on my next novel, Philippa (title of which is very subject to change). I'm in my first round of major revisions. It's a bit like Hidden Pearls in the fact that it is probably rather "Christian-fiction-ish." It's sort of a slice of life story about Christian people in everyday (if historical) circumstances. No pirates, sadly, but it does have pickpockets. And kittens. So that's something.
I'm also hoping to finish a novella retelling of Snow White this summer. I started it over a year ago but got stuck on a plot point which I've since untangled, thank goodness. It's going to be a longish novella, but still much shorter than a novel, so I think this could be my next published work...I'm thinking if all goes well I can release it with the new year. It's set during the 20s, too, which means I can listen to a bunch of highly awesome jazz music to get in the mood for it.
Speaking of shorter stories, I have a whole list of ones that I'm working on, and probably will continue to work on throughout the school year. My long term goal is to collect them and then publish two (loosely) themed collections of short stories and novellas, one of which would include a print version of For Elise.
And lastly, I've started on a fantasy series. I adore my plot and characters, but sadly everything collapses any time I put pen to paper. This might be because fantasy is a genre still new to me (writing it, I mean- I've read plenty) but this story has definitely been a problem child.
Anyway, these projects are my immediate future. I'm most optimistic about the first two, since I think I can really make some headway on them. Of course, I'm not sure how active I'll be on the internet because of it, so I apologize in advance. Does anyone else have grand writing plans for the summer?
