2013 - A Good Start

I hope everyone here has started 2013 off in the best possible manner. Myself, I've had nearly two weeks at home with my family, and it has been very relaxing. Much of the anxiety and lethargy I was feeling in November has evaporated, and I have all kinds of projects lined up for the new year.

First and foremost, I'm determined to finish revisions of 'The Third Transmutation', the fantasy novel of 110K that I've been working on for too long. Second, I have plans to draft a YA novel sometime this year, possibly kicking off with a 24-hour writing frenzy sometime in the spring… I don't know how that will turn out, or if I fall over dead after six hours, but it'll be an interesting experiment. And third, I have an SF novel to wrangle through a first, brutal revision. Whether or not I actually make that goal is subject to negotiation between my writerly ambitions, my family, my day job, and my need to sleep.

Determination aside, what will most likely happen is that I start writing more short stories… but that's what happens to battle plans, isn't it?

Either way, the time for writing is here. Writing, writing, writing! And resubmitting the stories that have come home to roost.

One that hasn't come back is 'The Great Equalizer' which is now out in the January issue of Interstellar Fiction. It's free to read in case you like yourself some alien surprises :-) The other stories in the issue are: Solo by Nathaniel Katz, Tread Lightly by Alex Hernandez, and The Rogue by Jennifer R. Povey.
