So I thought I'd give you all an update of what I've got going on. I know I'm curious about other people and how their writing lives are progressing, so I thought you guys might be, too. If not, then just ignore this post!
1) Querying. I took a bit of a break from it, but I'm gearing up to head back into it. As we all know, it's up and down, and sometimes fun and sometimes not, but that's part of it. Querying feels sort of like... life, sometimes. But even if this querying journey doesn't end up w/an offer of representation, I have learned tons and feel grateful for the requests that have came in. I am actively living my dream and that feels good.
2) I've only got one thing under my WIP tab right now. A sci-fi short story. It's been fun as I've not written science fiction before and I'm enjoying just pulling tech descriptions out of thin air. I mean, it's science fiction so that means it doesn't have to make sense, right? *Hush. That's what I'm telling myself, okay?*
3) Come Nov, I'm going to try and pull off an epic undertaking. Which is writing a first rough draft in two months. Eep. I have close to 8K done on an MG, and I'm going to see if I can possibly finish it by the end of Dec. Doable? We shall see! Also, you know how you hear people mention secret writing projects? That they feared talking about because it would take away some of the magic? I never understood that. But... I do now! Not even my oldest CP knows anything about this one! (Did I just shock your socks off, Kimberly?) ;)
So that's what's been brewing and bubbling lately. Anyone care to share what's cooking in your writing life?
