Hey Space Cadets, how’re y’all doing today? I’m doing great, working on a few small projects and prepping to start my next series. While I wait for the editor to take his Red Pen of Doom to my final Sleeping Legion novel, I’ve started outlining several smaller projects and tying up loose ends. I’ve got two short stories for different anthologies to write and then I’ll start on my next series. I really like the premise of the series in question, and think it has a lot of potential but more on that in another blog!
Not surprisingly, when I finished the novel my wife gave me a 24 page, typed and single spaced “Honey Do List.” She even cheated and used the 10-point font! Do any of you know how to pull a stuffed animal out of the toaster? Seriously, how’d that 4-foot bear even fit? And what was Son #2 thinking? All jokes aside, I’ve given myself permission to take a few light days so I can be present with my kids, but I will still write every day and I think I can still swing 2k words a day with the Dragon.
One of the things I’ve noticed since I started transitioning from one project to the next is how much my mind is stuck on the other world. I think I will write something vastly different, go for some humorous Space Balls vibe so I can kick the Human Legion habit. As a new author, I have no experience with this one. How do you guys handle it when you’re battling the muse through the literary trenches? Tell me about it in the comments below!
Until next time…..
Until next time, stay frosty and don’t forget to keep your powder dry!
