In The Demon’s Head 73: What’s New for 2013
January 11, 2013
Hello everyone happy belated new year to everyone. I’m excited because this is the first post of the New Year, this post is going to be full of information on my plans going forward through 2013.
First off, as some of you may know I enrolled in a writing class at the beginning of the year. I wasn’t sure how it would turn out but after doing just the first assignment I feel that I learned quite a bit already. This leads to some information regarding my debut novel.
I started writing the novel a little over a week before the New Year. I made it about five pages in before beginning the class and I’ve realized that I want to wait until I finish this class before I began that novel. It may be a little bit but I do intend to begin the novel and finally release it to the public.
So if the novel is now on the back burner for the time being does that mean that my writing is also on the back burner with the exception of the class? Not in the slightest. First the writings of the months I intend to continue those. I’d like to do one a month and hopefully can hold onto that while doing the class.
Now what about the stories side of things since most of my free writings will be poems? First let’s talk about the Blackout Series.
Originally my goals were to release the first story as a free download or read then put the others up for sale but I’m beginning to think that there may be a different system set up. I think that I will be giving away the stories for free for a while simply to help build my platform up as I work on the class and get in the process of writing my novel.
In the process of the class too I’m going to try to submit some short stories for publication to magazines. I’m aiming mainly to spend the next year or two as I finish the class to get my writer’s platform built up. Hopefully by no later than the end of 2014 possibly I could have the novel done and ready for release.
Those are some of the goals for this year. Part of the reason that I put the novel on the back burner was mainly because I wanted to focus most of my writing energy on the course and that way I could finish it quicker and I would be able to focus on it and learn as much as possible.
I will have some updates and information as I work through the course and hopefully come up with some new ideas for both stories and future novels. I look forward to this course and to sharing in the journey with you guys.
Until next time another Happy New Year and until you decide to take another trip through the gates of hell and into the demons head, I’m Kyle Robinson wishing you a safe trip back to the surface.
