Good Morning, Everyone!
First things first, I’m not making chicken dinner. Sorry to disappoint. But in the words of Carlos Estevez (a.k.a. Charlie Sheen), “Winning.”
Yesterday, Monday the 29th, I successfully completed Camp NaNoWriMo. My word count is currently 53, 726! As much as I would like to say that the Science Fiction Novel is finished, I cannot. I still have to write about 2 or 3 more chapters to wrap everything up. And then comes the clean-up and editing.
I must admit, this first draft is ugly. I’m happy with the turns the story has taken. But it’s just ugly at the moment. In it’s first draft for the month long writing event, I have managed to string together random thoughts and tons of stream-of-consciousness prose. It’s a mess that needs to be revised obviously. I usually write a much cleaner first draft. Either way I’m stoked to have completed my first Camp NaNo!
By next year Distance From The Moon should be available. I can’t give any specific dates until the editing gets into full swing.
On another note, I’m proud to announce another exciting bit of writing news. QT Games has an upcoming Role-Playing Game, called Cosmothea; a multi-genre game setting. QT Games is releasing an Anthology collection of short stories based within the many worlds they have created. I am honored to join 5 (possibly 6) talented Authors in this project.
I would love to give you more info on what the story I’m writing is about, but I’m under contract. All I can say is that it’s going to be a blast! For those looking for more news about upcoming RPG, please feel free to check out Creator/ Designer Bob Whitely’s blog: Cosmothea, where he lays down the skinny on everything related to his game. Also you can stop by QT Games to find even more Cosmothea news.
I’ll keep everyone up to date on the Anthology project as I continue onward with Bob and QT Games. The closer the short story collection gets to publication, the more I’ll be able to share- including where the physical copies and ebooks will be available for purchase.
As always, I appreciate your comments. Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!
