What with all of the writing I am doing, I am asked, from time-to-time where do you get your ideas what I am working on. Well, I just finished a piece of flash fiction set on Venus (that’s right, Venus). Here are the other projects I am working on (and wrap up) before I start on the second draft of my novel next month:
- An alternate history that looks like it might grow from a short story into a novelette. At least in the first draft.
- A nonfiction article that will (hopefully) appear sometime next year in–well, why don’t we just wait and see.
- I also agreed to write a space opera-ish story for a project I was invited to participate in–and one that sounds intriguing.
I don’t know how much I’ll actually get done before I return to the novel, but I would really like to get the first two items done. I figure I’ve got another 3-4 weeks before I’ll start writing the second draft of the novel, so that gives me some time.
What are you writing this month?
