Meanwhile, I have been getting a little bit done on a novel or two, but seeing as how I just qualified for the US Taekwon-Do Team…again…my spare time for the next four months pretty much just disappeared.
Well, back to it!
Take a gander at the covers I came up with for some of my stories.
It’s a very interesting exercise to try and represent a large collection of words with a simple image.
Always, the questions I ponder are simple. What would it look like to the reader? Does it convey a sense of the writing? Does it look good enough to think twice about?
Just for the fun of it, I am diving into the month of madness known as nanowrimo or National Novel Writing Month.
My plans are simple. Write 50,000 words or more and don’t get worried. No sitting and staring and pondering continuity. Just write. Most importantly, no editing of stuff I’ve already written. That favored form of procrastination is to be vehemently refrained from for the duration.
The greatest question of all is “What novel to write?” There are all too many novels clawing at my mind, begging to be written. Which will be the lucky winner this time? The main contenders are two urban fantasy concepts. One is new and exciting and not so very well fleshed out (in theory) and the the other is a bit more seasoned and thought out.
Until my mind changes, I will be working on the great adventure of Josey Jackson that goes by the title, Wanted: Undead or Alive.
