The Writing Life

This is just a brief post. Its purpose is to let you know what I'm working on, writing-wise, right now, so that you can help keep me accountable. It's also meant to help me clarify exactly what I'm working on and my self-imposed deadlines. So here goes.

NovelsPadma. I plan on finishing up the first draft by September so that I can throw it at some beta and sensitivity readers.

Stories:

  • "The B.I.M." This is the story I promised Jennifer for her birthday. I was planning on having it finished by her birthday, which was May 30, but I missed that deadline. So now I'm planning on finishing it by the 15th of June.

  • "A Pine Romance". I need to make some fundamental changes to this one to clarify the main character's emotional journey. No problem, right? Deadline is the end of July, so I can toss it around to various markets.

  • "How Bubba Handy's Rogue Shithouse Saved the World". This story, which my writers' group really liked, still has some issues: mainly, the action scenes at the end need to be clarified. Target: end of June.


And that's it!




A wee administrative note: This is the very last post that I will be cross-posting to LiveJournal. The Russian owners of that site are well within their rights to set the Terms and Conditions to whatever they want, but their homophobic stance convinces me that I just can't anymore. I'm planning on setting up a DreamWidth account, so you'll be able to follow me there.
