Musings About Writing and Stories About Life
She's like the girl in the movie when the Spitfire falls
Like the girl in the picture that he couldn't afford
She's like the girl with the smile in the hospital ward
Like the girl in the novel in the wind on the moors

No rest for the wicked
Words Written: Shareeza2: 272
On the plane home now. It’s too much work to haul out the laptop, so I’m working on the Palm. I’ve written a bit on a new BattleTech story, a sequel the first one I had published at battlecorps.com. (The further adventures of my dancing girl spy, for those of you who’ve read it.) I have no idea what all is going to happen—I have to research what’s going on on her home planet and the nearby vicinity at the time of the story, but it’s largely going to be about her coming out of the intense 7-year assignment. She’s a little messed up, you know?
Right now, I’m going to try to parlay my writing income into more workshops. I’m pretty sure I can’t swing the Short Story Workshop in May, but I’m looking ahead to another Novel Workshop and a Genre Structure Workshop in September, staying the week between. Phaedra’s looking at the same plan.
What’s up for the near future? Working on the novel that just got critiqued. Dean’s assessment is that it would sell, but sell small, and it won’t be an astonishing amount of work to ramp it up so it will sell bigger. I’ll get queries in the mail this coming weekend, which will also mean I won the Beautiful Trophy Challenge this quarter. Dean brought in the glass globes, which meant Louisa and I got to pick ours. They’re unbelievably beautiful.
I was thinking of taking next quarter off and working on shorter things, but now I’m not sure. I want to write a novel for Brava, and I also want to write a fantasy novel. I’ve finally accepted that I have to throw away the previous draft of Jewel Tones (or at least lock it in the attic) and start completely fresh. That’s the one I’d like to take to the September Novel Workshop. We shall see.
Lots of projects. Fun!
