January - September: I write the first draft;
September - December: I revise, edit and polish the thing;
December: I search for and find an agent :D
It's important that I don't get side-tracked by other projects that keep popping into my head, taking all the space there, though, I think, I would like to have small side-projects to work on from time to time, such as fairy-tales, short stories and novelettes. I would also like to keep up with my Regencies, though at present I will limit myself to research.
Well, we'll see! Happy New Year everyone!
