On the writing front, after doing a lot of waffling (aka deep contemplation) for the past week or so, I switched gears and returned to the slushie shelf my monster rewriting project. The primary reason as to why it got returned was time. As in, precious little time to put in the required due diligence in order to create something worthy of me. I learned quite a while that to put a crappy product just to have something out can ultimately do a lot more damage than good.
So....I went to some seriously old files on my old XP computer and found roughly three short stories that I could have some fun with. Why? Because I already have one in the can (1st draft only) and I'm looking to create another thematic short story trilogy, just like I did with Broken Promises.
The first story I'm rewriting (seems like all I do is re-write these days), is called "Rain", and the most interesting thing about this is that I'm rewriting it the old fashioned way: my hands. It seems that my Dragon software was creating way more aggravation than creating words on paper, so I finally relegated it to the land where old programs go to be ignored: my C drive. And because I'm using Dragon at work (v. 12) the hand fatigue has dissipated to the point where I can do some relatively normal typing at home. Which means that I'm making steady and slow progress on the story, which features a couple of humanoids and good old fashioned sexual fun.
And finally, a little promo work for good blogger friend Kim Talon. Kim, who has a fantastic poetry/prose/photo blog called appropriately enough, Talon, has just released her debut mystery novel called Strings And Bones, published by Mundania Press and available in print and the major e-book formats.
