A wise someone suggested I do a bit more posting to let readers get to know me a bit better. The same wise person also pointed out why my new story wasn’t going to get very far as I started it. Given that he was totally right about the story, I suspect I ought to give him credit for being wise and try my hand at doing more posting. So I’ll strive to it more often.
Our daughter started daycare today – I’m not sure who that was more traumatic for, her or us. If I say so myself, she looked adorable in her school outfit. From the comments we got from the staff, I think we might want to reconsider using cute outfits and go with boring basic clothes she can get all messy. We’re learning, slowly.
Writing wise, I’m sort of in a quandary; too many ideas/projects to work on and not enough time. Some, the urge to get out is greater than others, but all have their own issues.
Chosen of Honorus: is Due out early next year, though I may want to change the name. It might be too ‘weird’ to attract readers. The sequel – and this is going to a series of at least 4 books, maybe as many as 7 – is written in a very very rough form. I find rewriting to be almost as hard as writing from scratch. The problem is, sometimes it is better to blow it up than try to clean it up. The concept/idea is still good, but the writing isn’t nearly good enough. I find it hard because I’m constantly fighting the battle of clean up vs blow up. Often that makes things long and tedious.
Archangel: About a year ago, I wrote a short story for Gay Authors called Archangel. I said at the time I wanted to work on it and suddenly I have a muse – you know who you are – who has inspired me to work on this. Since the short story is out there, I won’t be giving away too much of the basic plot. The more detailed plot isn’t available so I won’t give that up. After four chapters, I need to go back and redo most of them. The plot is good—at least I think so—but the opening chapters need a bit more umph. So I’m working on Chapter 1 again.
AGG: This is the code name for a new book Anyta and I are working on. We are about 5 chapters into it, but I think there is something missing from the plot/story so we put this on the back burner for the time to see if we can’t figure out how to make it better.
Second Shot Sequel: I started this, but haven’t really gotten very far. I have the basic story out lined, but I trying to get to more projects before getting back to this. It might actually be the easiest to write if I got to it, I don’t know. But I’m up and down on this. I love the universe of characters, but I also want to create new ones.
Dlgen: I’ve done almost nothing with this, but I see this as 5 book story based on the characters of A Cold Rain something else I wrote for the GA Anthologies. That one would be a major project too. Not sure I can do that, Archangel and Chosen without going crazy.
Okay that’s it for now.
