Nina tagged me, and now I have to talk about what I’m working on! Which I’d meant to do anyway. I can’t believe I haven’t posted since February. Except… it’s been a crappy year so far. I’ve been sick for weeks at a time, multiple times. The spouse and the kid have been sick. I’ve switched doctors and am on new medication. All of this has been disruptive, to say the least.
I haven’t talked about my fiction here in a while, but I’ve been working hard on it for several months. I attended the Paradise Lost workshop in May, so I had to turn in something short (either a story or a novel chapter). In a daring move, I decided to finish revising one of my rare short stories instead of submitting a chapter as I usually do. The style and setting are departures from my usual work, so I was delighted when I got some really complimentary comments on it. Of course, the group also pointed out some problems, so now I’m revising again. I’m also working on a couple of new stories. And, since I seem to be back in the short fiction game after many years, I got off my butt and joined Codex.
I’m also close to finishing another novel, and I’m making notes on how to revise the other two. After the new WordPress book is out, that’ll be my to-do list for the rest of the year: Finish novel. Revise novel. Repeat.
