I’ve got multiple projects in progress, and I’m having fun, but I’m moving forward slowly. Work committments are exhausting me, the cold still hasn’t left, but I’m not giving up. My new story is in worldbuilding phase, I even drew a worldmap where this island exists. It’s a new world for me — a telepathic one. D&D psionics and Star Wars were my first introduction to that kind of magic, and I’m glad I finally found a place to put it to work for me.
Calico revision is still in the works. I plotted out three scenes to go in at the 75% mark, but something isn’t quite working. I need to reevaluate them to see what the deal is.
Exciting reading news: a new anthology arrived in the mail. It’s one I think my own story could have made it into with another revision if only I hadn’t submitted it in the last hour before the deadline. I could be dreaming here, but that’s how I took it. They gave me amazing feedback on my own submission. So naturally, I’m damn curious to see who and what made it into the anthology. And here it is, Triangulation: End of the Raindbow. I read the first story, a flash piece by entitled “The Rainbow Vendor” by David Sklar. And it’s cute. 🙂 Onto the rest… in between my own writing, of course.
And I found a new site to stalk, thanks to another wotf contestant: http://www.writingexcuses.com/. I just listened to their Sept 7 podcast on POV. Very interesting. They’ve been at this for a whle; I’m going to have to play catchup.
