Plotting for my next novel, and plotting the countdown for the rest of the year. Ideally I'd like to get my partial done (and polished and sent!) before Christmas Eve. Will it be possible? It should be… if I can get the plotting sorted ASAP. It's not due on the editor's desk until January 1st, but I'd rather have it done before then. The first two chapters are solid in my mind, and I’ve started writing them. It’s the story arc, the plot twists and nuances I need to spend more time thinking on. Wish me luck!
