Here I am, again, after two finished manuscripts. I have been really busy with writing those two pieces, and although they met their unfortunate demise at the hands of the publishing houses, I have not given up! My fourth manuscript is now in the making. The second manuscript (a novella) and the third one (a novel) both got some feedback from the publishers. I got praised for prose and unique ideas, but got rejected based on marketing. The second one being a novella and part of a uncommon genre in a Finnish publishing landscape, the third for some unknown reason (one publisher had too many books coming out of the same genre). So here I am. The fourth one is almost halfway there. My resolution for the 2017 is to finish at least two manuscripts, and write at least a few short stories. You see, I'm not very "adept" at making short stories. My stories usually end up being at least novellas, so I haven't actually written a short story in a long time. I'm pretty sure it's been over a year. This Progress Journal is mostly meant for those few short stories I have made a pledge to write and finish. The first one being a science fiction story about being a daughter and at the same time being not. I hope to get it done and edited before the end of February.
