I’ve been away a long time from the blog, haven’t I? Somehow November slipped away from me, and December was starting to as well, but I caught the slippery thing firmly with both hands.
You’ll be happy to know that I am out of my Quartz-induced trance and ready to turn to other projects. I spent this evening brainstorming on Cool New Project which is going to be *gulp* much much bigger than anything else I’ve ever worked on. For one, it might have as many as four major characters and two storylines. Probably more, if the worldbuilding ends up being as complex as I expect it will. Not to worry, I have plenty of time to develop this concept while I finish up Kai’s book.
Speaking of which, I read my latest notes on Kai’s book and I’m totally thrilled with the themes and concepts I’m exploring in the story. So thrilled that I went off to interlibrary-loan (yes, I just made that into a verb) books about plutonium and Mongolia. I love how my writer brain puts all these random things together!
I’ve fallen woefully behind on my reading roundups. I’ll play catch up (with brief reviews) the rest of this week. Gotta get my Best of… list ready.
How about you? What are you all up to?
You live!! 🙂 So happy to see you!
I’m excited about the Kai book. It sounds so awesome. Know what you mean about November slipping away, but I did finish one short story, get a lot of words written (didn’t do a final total count on that :shrugs: ), and most importantly, got halfway through my revision of In This Wood. Going to try and finish that this month, do end-of-the-year work for our nonprofit, write a documentary A/V script, and sketch out or possibly write a nonfiction book. (So much for all the short stories. :rolls eyes: )
Ah well. I always knew I was overambitious.
Go, you! Every little bit counts. I’m overambitious as well, but I’m learning to control myself a bit in that department. I limited my goals this year to just one–Revise Quartz, and that’s what I did. I like having a 100% success rate. 😉
Non-fiction book, eh? What about?
Shh! My little secret. 🙂
So glad to hear you have grabbed the slippery thing with both hands! If I stand next to you long enough, do you suppose it will rub off on me? :)TX
I think you might have to reach out and catch your own slippery thing, Tex!
