Fantasy, Romance, and Other Genre Fiction

This week hasn’t been as physically productive as I’d like with the fibro kicking in again, but it has been full of creative energy.  I will so take it.  I’m excited about some of the developments that I’ve made.

What I’ve accomplished the past week:

  • Everything on the blog except an excerpt.
  • Started getting the GLIIH sorted out and projects named.  (And in the process discovered that I want to do more webcomics/graphic novels than I have artistic skill for.)
  • A LOT of work on the planning/pre-writing side of the Soldaris Saga, including some very important epiphanies that break down most of the blocks that have had me stalled out.
  • Started a new draft of the Soldaris Saga that accounts for the expanded/divided books that were previously just the first book.
  • Figured out some of  what I need to do with the YA project formerly known as Shadowfighter.
  • Made a new playlist for a project that’s been floating around in the back of my head since 2009, but realized that the collaboration I want to do on this idea with people who are much more famous than I am means it’s a very long-term project.  Need to build up my own credentials first.
  • Went to a book signing/reading by Tracy and Laura Hickman, and had a nice chat about writing with some real pros.

What I’d like to accomplish this week:

  • Finish sorting the GLIIH.  A lot of the ideas are fairly generic and can be used as short stories or elements of bigger stories, so I’ve been having a hard time classifying them into distinct categories.
  • Finish the last draft of the Soldaris Saga that I was working on (because it was maybe 5k words from the end when I got disgusted and stopped) and send it out to my beta readers.
  • Come up with a new name for the YA project formerly known as Shadowfighter.
  • Somehow maybe convince my very artistically talented brother that he wants to help me with my more visual projects?
  • Catching up on beta-reading projects for friends that got put aside during the depression.
  • Write and post some fanfiction.  I’ve missed it.
  • Do some visual updating of the blog.  Not sure I like the theme I have right now.
