Whoops, forgot about this site for awhile there!
I did an interesting writing exercise today. I went with a writer’s group to a farmer’s market where we interviewed passersby about their lives to write one page short stories inspired by them. I believe I have five stories to write now. It was an interesting process for me because all my stories are long interconnected epics. I never write on the fly like this. Apparently I’ll be getting a mention in the local paper!
Also, I’ve received word that the publisher has accepted my forthcoming novel! It’s a full length continuation of my Beryl Truesword short story in his fantasy anthology series Tales of Fortannis: A Bard Day’s Night. Coming in 2016!
This is nowhere close to publication, but last month I completed my high fantasy novel trilogy. This was a huge personal accomplishment for me as it’s the first long form story I’ve written from start to finish. If I get hit by a bus tomorrow, I’ll at least have that on the page in fully realized form and not just a set of notes!
I’m now moving on to continuing the first book in my primary story, an epic sci-fi series that will total 14 books if I ever get it finished. This is the series I’ve been working on since 1993. I started writing it as a novel in 2006 but fell away from it.
