Writing, Writing, and More Writing

I’m up to about page 95 of the novel being something that people can read. Woot, etc. Soon I will be sailing my creativity into uncharted territory, as Octavia will waste no time in taking Lucy out of the picture, and that’s going to be all new, all different writing, so I suspect things’ll change pace-wise.

Right now, two opportunities for short stories have come up, one especially that I feel kind of obligated to submit for, as I was pretty vocal about opportunities therein. So, for the foreseeable future I’ll be cranking out two shorts. No one should be surprised that the first short is about fire fighting, given my sojourn into that field for the design of an English class for Qatari fire fighters. So, these days, if you want to know what a mini-pumper is, I’m your woman.


This weekend is the local gaming convention, which we will be visiting on and off. Strangely, I suspect I’ll get some writing done this weekend during those not gaming times, so hopefully I can get these short stories put together soon and get them out to some readers.

BTW, would any of you like to read short stories? I can’t tell you what the second one will be about yet, because I don’t know, but the first one will be a fire fighter going to the Inferno.

Have a great weekend. I hope we are done with nasty weather for a bit. I’m pretty sick of it.
