Discussion

Hullo Dearies,

2017 was a slow-going but exciting year! At least, for this project. Slow-going in the rate I’ve been sharing stories with you, and exciting in that most of the sharing has been of links to where they’ve been published.

Becoming an official contributor of EAP: The Magazine was a huge personal and professional win. I get to see my name in traditional “print” and more folks get to read fairy tales without the lame-isms.

This project will be continuing its slow-and-steady-wins-the-race pace. Meanwhile, I wanted to share with you my more Speedy Delivery project schedule, in case you wanted more fairy tale-based work in your life:

  1. 100 days spent working on 31 Days of Narratemes, a guided journal for questing the crap out of your daily life;
  2. 100 days spent working on The ABCs of Hoarding Like a Dragon, a memoir written as an alphabet book rather than as a single linear story (it’s a Polish literary genre, and I’m Polish, so I’m doing it);
  3. 100 days spent on Puttin’ the Puss in Boots, a guidebook to the MASTER CAT method for living happily ever out there; and,
  4. 100 days working on Sally Forth, a paranormal young adult book about a pair of sisters in the aftermath of one of them becoming a ghost who can only communicate by quoting Bill Murray (a very loose re-telling of SnowWhite).

Now a big part of how I plan to get this done is an accountability practice which I am making public so that we can all get things done together (plus some not-public writing practices):

  1. Every morning from 9:00am-11:30am I live stream my Morning Writing HERE so that anyone can join along and do what they’re going to do;
  2. I have created a Facebook event HERE where folks can keep up-to-date on book section releases and partake of my public accountability practice and get a few bonus goodies along the way;
  3. When I’m not publicly work on 31 Days of Narratemes, a guided journal for questing the crap out of your daily life, I have off-camera writing time scheduled for completing my memoir (then when the memoir writing goes public, my off-camera writing time will be spent on the guidebook, and so forth); and,
  4. At the start of each 100 days of Morning Writing, I’ll start informing readers of my incomplete projects (like you folks reading these stories) of my updated project schedule so that we’ll all be on the same page and ready to go when the time for this book’s 100 days finally comes!


Good journey, my friends,
Rose


In preparing for the close of this year and the start of the next, I’m starting to get clear with my schedule as to what projects I want to work on and when. As part of this, I’ve updated the list of contents to show at the very least the titles of all 26 tales I’d like to include in this collection.

Only two of the new titles listed are available at this time, Under the Roses (12) and Dormiveglia (17), and their availability is through SoundCloud.

I look forward to sharing my timeline with you soon.

Hullo Dearies,

It’s been a while since I’ve had cause (or known I had cause) to update you on this book. But it’s come to my attention that I failed to add the two most recent publications to the project page and share them with you!

So below I’ve included the seven stories thus far published (here and elsewhere) which will be making their way into the final book which will have a total of 26 tales when the time comes.

Enjoy,
Godmother Rose
