STANDING IN THE STORM, The Many Worlds of William Alan Webb

We Sleep At Night Because America's Armed Forces, Police and Fire Fighters Never Do

A writer’s schedule

People ask me what a typical day looks like and the real answer is, the hell if I know. My day’s are so atypical that no two look alike. I wish they did.

So instead I thought I’d make a list of all the things on my schedule that I’d like to accomplish before the end of the year. I’m doing this as much for me, as to answer the question of my usual day’s activities. What am I supposed to do before January 1? This doesn’t include my daily responsibilities of keeping the house clean, the yard cut, playing with the puppies and making the meals.

  1. Decide which cons I’d like to attend next year and see if they would like to have me.
  2. Finish writing the fourth novella in my new series Sharp Steel and High Adventure. The story is titled The Demon In the Jewel.
  3. Finish the cover for A Night at the Quay if Shannon O. can’t. This is a very short term thing, but still. If circumstances allow her to finish, prepare to be wowed.
  4. Finish cover for The Demon in the Jewel.
  5. Find new talent to mentor in business. Some of you might not know it, but I’m a business consultant and mentor on top of everything else. I have recently found an impressive young man to mentor and it rekindled the fire to do it again. If you know of anyone who might like to become a successful business owner, send them my way. But be warned: they’ve got to be serious, I don’t have time to waste trying to motivate those who aren’t ready to do what is necessary to succeed.
  6. Attend DragonCon and Imaginarium as a panelist.
  7. Finish book 3 of The Last Brigade.
  8. Finish book 4 of The Last Brigade.
  9. Finish prequel to The Last Brigade titled Not Enough Bullets.
  10. Write book proposal for Killing Hitler’s Reich: The Battle For Austria, 1945
  11. Finish re-writing and editing two short stories written with Tom Russell, then submit.
  12. Finish editing and re-writing my short story LifeEnders, then submit to markets.
  13. Continue submitting short story Tail Gunner Joe to markets.
  14. Re-write short story Winter Storm.
  15. Outline and prepare for writing partially written novel currently titled The Time of Your Life, which will likely be re-titled something like The Prison of Time.
  16. Decide whether to pursue partly written novel currently titled Suntans Within Suntans.
  17. Begin outline for novel idea The Halls of Heaven.
  18. Begin outline for two full length novels in Sharp Steel and High Adventure series, a prequel and a sequel to the novellas.
  19. Learn how the f*** to use Scrivener.
  20. Record audiobook of me reading The Last Attack. Use the result of this to determine whether I can do justice to the Brigade or Sharp Steel books.
  21. Get a recording of Standing The Final Watch on the market, regardless of who is reading it.
  22. Update Zero to Hero.
  23. Outline and begin writing We Are Rome.
  24. After #23, write book proposal for same.
  25. Outline unnamed alternate history novel about the War for Southern Independence.
  26. Outline prequel for The Last Brigade. The one where the world ends.
  27. Sleep. This is optional.
