So November is right around the corner and as you may or may not know that's NaNoWriMo is a month away. I have been thinking of starting a new project which would be the fifth installment of my series The Adventures of Marco and Carla. Here is the kicker, I have two other projects on my plate that I still have to finish and have published by the end of the year, and two other projects that I had started and never finished. The projects that i started and never finished, I've decided to revisit and attempt to finish them up, but I really want to write the fifth book to my series.
It's been over a year since I've published anything regarding the series and I want to keep the ideas that I have fresh and start the whole writing process. But here is the thing if I start this new project then the other projects I will would suffer and be placed on the back burner once again. I am so eager to do all this writing, but at the same time I feel that I won't have the time to give my all to each and every project. Doing two stories at a time is hard enough, but four and then taking on a fifth is insane.
So in writing this I came to the conclusion that for the month of November, I will focus on the two projects that are still not finished and work even harder to have the other two that are "supposedly" done published. I say supposedly because I always find something that I might want to change, plus these are the two projects I wanted illustrated. I might hit up Fiverr.com and see if I can get some great illustrations.
SO!! Do you have any projects you are working on now?
What will you writing for NaNoWriMo?

So I've been thinking of what should get done first regarding my books and stories and have been revisiting alot of my projects that have fallen to the way side. I started on the edits for The Receptionist and so far so go. I am hoping to have it done by the end of the year, like I said in my previous article.
I am really happy with it so far, since a lot of people that have read the rough version of it really liked and wanted to know what happend to the characters involved in this piece. Happily I will say that this piece of work is more towards the teen and the adult reading group, because of some of the content. I am trying to be dual minded as far as writing things for kids and writing for adults also. Even though I love writing for children, I don't want to close myself off as a writer, so I am exploring as far as writing other things.
So, I have about four to five projects on hand for you all to read and hopefully I can upload a sample of one or a couple of stories on my personal website, Shamara Davis Books for you all to download and enjoy. Also I really want to see if I can get feedback, but I am kind of apprehensive about placing all my new work out there since they might end up on another website.
Anyway lookout for the titles: The Receptionist, Altered:Genesis and Witchling (maybe a series) soon.
