It does not get any more hectic than this…Tomorrow I will deliver a new translation. Next week an Italian publisher will tell me and my writing partner how many novels they want in the series, and how much they are paying. By the 30th of the month I have to deliver a 15.000-words story to my American publisher. By the 7th of October I will deliver a 10.000-words SF story as a bonus to the backers of my crowdfunding. By the 15th of October I have to (finally) deliver a 50.000-words novel to my publisher Down Under. On the 16th of October, two or possibly three anthologies will be presented featuring a story of mine each. By the 31st of October I will have to deliver another 15.000-words story to my American publisher. By the 15th of November I plan to submit a new 6000-words Aculeo & Amunet story to an online magazine. Around the 20th of November, the backers of my crowdfunding will get an EARC of my forthcoming essay. By the 31st of November I have to deliver another 18.000-words story to my American publisher (and this will actually make four stories, 66.000 words in total, in four months for this specific project). By December the 15th my self-published, Italian-language non-fiction book will hit the shelves. By December the 31st I will have to get at least 70.000-words worth of fantasy novel and submit them to Angry Robot. And there will most likely be a 5000-words spin-off of Aculeo & Amunet in a highly rated magazine somewhere in 2018.
I don’t think I’ll take part in NaNoWriMo this year, after all.
