Writing again!

This has been a good week for my writing. I finally edited the final two completed chapters of 'Winter Emergence' and am ready to move on writing the next novel of the trilogy. I'd better get it done since the main character from the third book is being one very annoying cat.

I'm also working on the collaboration. It's been moving a bit slow due to other life complications. However, my goal is to really dive in since my work schedule is going to become very demanding here in a a couple of months.

Figures, the deadlines for the two anthologies I'm editing fall right into that time period. That's okay. It'll give me something to look forward to after I get home or on the weekends.

Shift Change

I've changed schedules at work so now I have to find other ways to accomplish my writing. This blog is being written after I've put in a long day. I'm not saying the change is a bad thing. In fact, the shift actually goes by faster because it's busier than the late nights. It also challenges me to manage my time so everything I need to do gets done.

Now, if I can just adjust my writing schedule accordingly....

The Dollhouse Series

Eventually, I'm planning on writing a series of paranormal/urban fantasy/supernatural/horror novels all based on the dollhouses I've built, decorated and peopled, both with human dolls and animals. The first two are planned and the other day, out of the blue, I discovered who my bad guy was. I hadn't really given it much thought. I just knew the first novel I've worked on was rather dry and lacked a 'what's at stake' element.

Having now figured it out, I'll be able to write this series. Yeah!

And sometime in the distant future, I'm hoping to open my own miniature museum. Can you imagine how fun it will be if there are a series of books to go with it and how absolutely unique that will be?

Uneventful week

Not a very eventful week. I spent time with my extended family, IE Denverfilk. We gathered on Saturday to share food, fellowship and song. Even had an out of town guest from Boston and skyped someone in from Tennessee. It was a wonderful gathering and we all enjoyed ourselves.

On the writing front I got a rejection. Wasn't really surprised. The editor enjoyed the story but it didn't fit the magazine. On the upside, it tells me what has to happen at the end of 'Winter Moon'.
