Writing Report March 14, 2017
More details will follow, but I’ll have a short story in an upcoming original anthology. Not science fiction / fantasy / horror, but a light hearted look at book hunters and what motivates them.
It was tons o'fun to write: The plot unfolded itself pretty quickly to me, and the actual writing took only a single afternoon.
You’ll sometimes hear writers saying something “wrote itself” and I think that’s true.
You can get metaphysical about it and say the stories are circling around …somewhere… …out…there… just waiting for a chance to land.
You can be brutally pragmatic about it and say sometimes the logical sequence of events is so self apparent there’s no need to over think the material.
Whatever… It’s written and it’s waiting its turn to make itself known to the world.
Poor Banished Children Of Eve is having its cover art completed; more about it as we get closer to the publication date.
The modern day YA western needs its turn in the re-writer hopper, then the 2nd female barbarian novella, then finally I can get started on the big book I’ve been planning.
And I have a lot more on deck, but first (and second, and third) things first.
