After doing battle with a muse-killing cold virus for much of February I finally got back in the writing saddle and finished the first draft of “Road to the Colony”. I looked at my previous Writing Update post and realized I changed the format from what I had planned. There are now three novelettes, instead of two. You might be surprised at who the third story is about, if you’ve read “Must Love Sandwiches”. I’ll probably add in some small truffle (flash) sized stories, but I haven’t written those yet. For now, the three novelettes are done and awaiting revisions and editing. Plus I get to develop some new recipes, which is always fun.
Writing that third novelette wasn’t easy, though. I had a terrible time focusing on it since the girls in the basement (aka muses) decided they wanted to brainstorm blog posts instead. I managed to get the novelette written by relegating the proposed blog posts to To-Do lists and sticky notes. So stay tuned for a new blog series and maybe even the resuscitation of a neglected blog very soon. Oh, and I almost forgot, I have another project in the outlining stage. I’m really excited about this one. If you have a sharp eye you might have caught what it is in my post about the sticky note organizer. I’m really hoping I don’t have so many plans and projects right now that I end up spinning in circles and not getting any of them done!
How about you? What are you working on right now?
