Sorry for the hiatus, friends! Things have been busy in the writing front, mostly in the news realm. This past week was San Diego Comic-Con’s annual #Hotelpocalypse, which of course brought with it a slew of opinions and troubles that needed reported on. With news being the priority, I haven’t had as much time to work on my novels, but on the flip side, Acta Dnerda is ready to go for this year’s convention as press!
With the hotels out of the way, I did get wrangled into Camp NaNoWriMo through a friend. I’ve participated in the November event before, but I have never gone through the Camp. It’s a fun twist, what with getting campmates and all. You can find me under Weszor.
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem as though I’ll actually win this year, though not for lack of writing. If anything, I’ve been doing pretty well. The issue is that ideas are flowing so well that it’s hard to concentrate on just one story at the moment.
It’s an odd feeling when most writers seem to have struggled with Writer’s Block, myself included. The words of wisdom out in the ether suggest working on just one or two projects at a time, but I can’t possibly imagine allowing inspiration to go to waste. So, I’ve got four projects at the moment, and, even more scattered, each of them are in different genres.
It’s a nice test, a way to try new things. I am primarily a fantasy author, and all of these books will contain elements of magical realism at the least (some more than others, of course), but there’s also horror and even a traditional coming-of-age-in-the-Midwest option.
With queries for The Sky Thief out, I’m trying to concentrate on getting new content out rather than worrying about rejections or what agents think of the partials I have out. I figure if worse comes to worse and TST doesn’t land an agent, maybe one of these other projects will, and then we can revisit the exploits of the Cloudkicker later on.
Hopefully, between four books, I can scrounge up 50k words for this year’s Camp. Maybe.
