A to Z Blog Challenge

Unwritten stories, uncharted ideas, unending possibilities. Ideas are not a problem for me at this point in my writing career. Finding time to finish stories is another matter. Because it’s been awhile since I updated my progress (and it totally fits the U theme of the day) I thought this would be a good time to look at the story ideas I’ve recorded and the progress (if any) as well as genre. Bear with the working titles; those are just a way for me to remember which file is which.

Into the “Projects” folder we goooooooooooooo…..

  • Underworld (Fantasy Horror) Word Count = WC 835 of novella
  • Celestial Seas (Inspirational Romance) WC 4,761
  • Habitat (Post-Apocalyptic, Medieval Werewolf Fantasy) (Yes, I’m serious.) WC 7,000
  • Dragon’s Maid (Fantasy, MG or YA) WC 8,263
  • Melia Nahlia’s Tribe WC 1,752
  • Faery Lands (Excerpt) 418
  • Covenant House Sitay (Dystopian) WC 19,325
  • The Mage (Fantasy) WC 6,688
  • Celtic Soul (Highland Romantic Suspense or is it Suspenseful Romance?) WC 5,470
  • Bendiin World – Fighter of the First Order (Sci-fy) WC 7,812
  • Zombie Romance WC 16,174
  • The Teacher and the Wolf (Paranormal) WC 17,804
  • Other ideas saved as: compelled, weird dream, shadow feeds, the rejects, Mischief and the Mommy Monster, Bear Dancing, The Ridged, Pod K8, Hollywood Suite (Contemporary Suspense)
  • Non-Fiction: I Dreamt of Alaska, Messiness Is a Gift and Other Unexpected Blessings from God, Wooing the Warrior

AND FINALLY the next book in my Begotten Bloods series (BB3) stands at WC 59,540 which sounds like a lot except I’m beginning to think I’ll have to make two books out of the story I have going. But I should talk about that tomorrow since it will be V is for Vampires day.

So you can see my genres are all over the place which I think is okay for an early career author. This is my time to experiment with no demands (well, except for the youth in the young writers group who regularly ask if my Dragon book is finished yet and the readers patiently waiting for the next Begotten Bloods novel).

I guess it’s possible I’ll run out of ideas some day, however there is already enough on my plate to last for several years. For now the day dreams of full-time writing will have to wait. Thankfully, day-to-day progress is still possible.

Writing Conferences: Science Fiction and Fantasy

COMING MARCH 2014: FOGcon Screen Shot 2013-05-11 at 10.27.41 PM

What Is FOGcon?

Friends of the Genre (FOGcon) is a literary-themed San Francisco Bay Area SF/F con in the tradition of Wiscon. Each year we focus on a new theme in speculative fiction and invite Honored Guests ranging from writers to scientists to artists. We build community, exchange ideas, and share our love for the literature of imagination….

The theme of Fogcon 4 will be: it’s Secrets. Science Fiction has a long history with secret hideouts, secret societies, even secret worlds. So who decides what is secret? How do we keep secrets? How do we discover what is secret? That’s a start to future conversations.
