Short stories – 2 new drafts achived, revisions pending. I’d been shooting for two finished stories a month, but that was before Novel 2 happened to me. Now I’m happy that I’ve found brainspace for short stories at all.
Novel 1 – code name: Moon. It is being read by a trusted mentor, it has acquired a moniker I like very much: ‘book’. Next up, another big revision round, then off it goes. ::bounce::
Novel 2 – code name: Arrow. First draft finished itself late last week, and although I’ve got a ways to go, that’s 65k in about three weeks. I was trying to figure out why I felt like I’d been hit by a truck. I may have found the reason. I’m three chapters in on revisions, and very happy with where this is going.
Cooking the Books: this began as my ‘do something that terrifies you’ project – talking to other authors about cooking and craft. I interviewed a lot of people as a copywriter. This is the first time I’ve really, truly cared about the conversation. It’s going pretty well – at least I think so – check the first two in the series out and let me know what you think.
