Occasionally I get into conversations with other writes – those in professional writing, as well as in fandom (because yes, I am still involved not just in professional writing, but in fandom writing as well), and the conversation usually involves things like, “So what are you writing?”
Boy, that’s a loaded question. It’s like asking a hypochondriac how they are feeling.
I’m still hip-deep in the middle of my Migration: Beginnings rewrite, though I’m chugging along quite well after a quite productive weekend. I’m almost at 75% complete in the initial rewrite, which is just taking the book from present tense to past tense. But after that is complete, I’ll be doing a little more tweaking – making Rhys a little more angsty, as well as applying certain things from “Take Off Your Pants” like end of chapter tweaks.
And I’ve got to finish it sometime soon because once that’s done and off my plate, it will still be full! This is just a sample:
- Prequel book to Migration: Beginnings, to offer free for folks new to the series
- The second and third books in the Migration: Beginnings series
- Four short stories, each 5,000 to 25,000 words, for a book I’m co-writing with my “Million Miles Amok” co-writer Lisa Witte.
- Prequel and the first book in a male/male erotica series
Hundreds of thousands of words are planned in dozens of stories, just waiting to be written!
