It’s time to stop putting 2018 for things!
I’ve been earning a professional certification, and with my major, final exam right around the corner, I’ve actually been experiencing a bit of nervousness. I’ve never had a problem with academics, but, going all the way back to my lab rat days….I’ve learned that tests which involve the memorization of multiple textbooks (as in, all of it) and the synthesis of info from the field….well they make me want to pull all-nighters.
And there’re always limits.
So, logically, I’ve been procrastinating one of the best things to procrastinate with: writing.
Here’re my current W.I.P.s.
Harsh and gritty. About a man who’s mental issues are approaching clinical, debilitating, and downright frightening. This becomes extra troublesome, because he’s enlisted into a futuristic military, and has to figure out who are his people, if he can save them, and, if so, why will he?
It’s told from different focal characters, and set in a future where eugenics breed a whole new class of people.
Bahamut (working title): Querying
Different, separate stand alone. Music composer realizes that there’s a reason some things just feel right, and has to contend with a secret society which reveals way, way too much about the devil in the details.
Set in our time, it ends with mystery, thrills, and a revelation.
There’re lots of agents, editors, publicists, and other literary professionals who like to point out how noveling, and traditional publishing is a marathon.
To them I say, newp.
Traditional publishing takes much longer.
