It is the first day of 2014 and I am kicking my writing into high gear. I’m currently working on three short stories, one of which is a perennial work-in-progress.
1. The Pearls of Cilyeah – A sword & sorcery fantasy in a darker vein with a female anti-hero
2. Golem – a science-fiction story about the future of ground combat meeting bio-engineering.
3. The Long Night – Noir urban fantasy. Raymond Chandler meets the Brothers Grimm when a private eye spends a night under siege from criminals at a local nightclub.
Each of these are in various states of completion. One thing I’m doing is giving myself deadlines. So I’m saying that first drafts for each of these need to be completed by January 15, 2014.
Off we go!
