I have the really bad habit of having eleventy different projects on the go and jumping between them as a method of enhanced procrastination. To date the ideas file looks like this (dubious progress in brackets) Thief-taker series (cop thrillers set in near future - much more car chase and gunfire than police procedural) Thief taker (part written), Blue murder, White Knight, Dark motives, Wild Justice (originally written as a short story), Cold Fury, Loose cargo (one very explicit sex scene , don't ask me why) , Hood Rat, Fire bug, dirty money, Ghost riders (one car chase) The Bad guy trilogy - set in the same setting as thief taker and sharing some of the same minor characters but with a bank robber as the main protag The Bad guy (first draft written - gestating) , The long ride , as yet untitled third The Frost range trilogy - Sci fi Fantasy , set on (and off) a fictional planet Drop team (outlined) , Frost range (outlined) , Rubicon The after the wave series - set in the UK 50 years after an epidemic has decimated the world population - the survivors are (naturally) fighting each other over what remains After the wave (outlined and part written though the writing doesn't much resemble the outline) , Code of Honour (outlined) Cleanskins - a short story (partly written) Teaching sheep to count - my autobiography (1 chapter and a couple of blogs written before I lost interest , - I need to resolve the how do I write about xyz person being a jerk without getting sued before I pick it up again) Clearly I'm suffering from the butterfly mind , and if I'm ever going to get published that needs to stop and i'm hoping this journal will help me stay on track. I probably ought to focus on polishing up "the bad guy" but I've pretty much lost enthusiasm for it, so my current WIP is "after the wave" and i'm looking to get that to first draft before I do anything else. I'm not setting a weekly target per se, but the intent is to write on it every day or at least every day i can manage with my day job... and aim to have it at first draft by Xmas. I'm aiming to update the journal with progress each week ... although knowing me this will drift every now and then.
