Well, now, it’s been a while! I can explain, honestly I can. You see…
I’m offering that as a viable excuse to anyone who has started a project and hasn’t followed through very well. Because sometimes, it just does.
But I am back on track! You might not see any short stories from me in a while, but I am working on a novel right now, temporarily called Living Up. It goes like this…
Everyone has retreated to towers to escape the sentient plant life that has turned toxic in response to humans’ abuse. When Tash gets a promotion and a new apartment, a forbidden printed book makes it into her posession. With the NECs and the government after her and the book, there’s no one left for Tash to trust.
Have I hooked you? Well, it’s okay if I haven’t. That’s not my best attempt at a blurb. And honestly, I’m still in the writing stage. As in, I started in November, and 125,404 words later I’m still not finished yet.
And editing? Well, that’s scheduled for January 7th with a bunch of writerly friends in the Lehigh Valley, so really, I’m under a bit of a crunch. There is No. Way. That I’m showing up there without my story in a binder. And quite honestly, I hope to have it done by Friday, since that’s my birthday and one of the things I want to do that day is get the sucker printed and put in a binder suitable for editing.
So I’m back, and I’m going to put a lot of updates here (and by “a lot” I kind of mean when I’m stuck and need a tiny writing distraction, so whenever that happens) about it, because…
Because I really don’t post here enough, and I think this in-progress story is a good reason to take advantage of the blog-space I have. Maybe nobody reads blogs anymore, but this is it for now.
Wish me luck!
