I'm messing around with a character study writing prompt using the main characters of a novel I've been outlining. It was supposed to be short and sweet, but I'm already at 6 pages...

I'm having fun though :)

Planning stages of a mythological fantasy short story titled Harkoi and Hiisi. Hoping to get to writing the story inside a month. Going forward I'm also hoping the current method of planning and plotting works better than the ones before.

Too many things. Third novel in a series that needs finishing urgently as number two about to be released; a commissioned short story; a commissioned article for a crime magazine; and that's not even taking into account the events I'm planning, and the website editing, and the writing groups and sessions I'm running.

Clones, anyone?

I've finished going through the text of my 2000s novel Red Silence Green Song for possibly the LAST TIME EVER (ha, who am I kidding?) as I'm SPing it shortly. The cover art is done, and the lettering colour has excited some controversy, which I hope to go internet-wide and generate oodles of publicity. I'm also working up to starting the third in my YA eco-magic Earthwyrms series.

Apart from being distracted by random short story ideas - effectively just long scenes - I'm still working on First Star I See Tonight, the completion of the Under Darker Suns novella trilogy.

Having said that, a reviewer of Not Here, Not Now generally enjoyed it, but found the 'rushed' ending a bit of a let down. That kind of threw me, as it was pretty much how I'd always pictured the completion, so I'm trying to resist a revamp given how much work in progress I have.

Hi, I'm new to the forum :) I'm about 1/3 of the way through my first proper attempt at writing a complete novel (I have many, many discarded beginnings of novels). This one has a proper outline and everything! It's a YA story based on a mixture of Finnish mythology (eg. the Kalevala), and faery.

A wet, but photogenic, bit of Scotland.
A one page strip set on board the USSSS Ship detailing the adventures of two of its All Girl Astro-Amazon crew as they deal with the ship faulty toaster. I'm cleaning up my pencils in Photoshop which will get coloured by my Number Two Daughter in Autodesk Sketchbook before giving it back to me to letter in Photoshop.

I've just gotten past the 30k mark on my science fantasy book, working title 'Woke World'. Humans are using humanoid canines as sacrificial slaves, there's a vegetarian detective, a canine scientist trying to create immortality and a war amputee. Also, everyone eats eye goo from a made up monster, and there's gods and stuff. I'm thoroughly enjoying it.

Hi,

So finally finished the new book - it's now called Modesty (which my sister hates as a title!) - and I'm on the third revision. It's a little small for an epic fantasy at 101K, but I think it's good at that length. Cover's done too and the blurb's in process. I love it when things start suddenly coming together!

Cheers, Greg.

I am currently working a space opera mystery that grew out of a 75 word challenge. I've got my first novel attempt on hold as I feel I need to gain a little more perspective on writing before I give it a heavy edit. Lastly, I have an interesting race of creatures defined that are also on hold until I find a suitable plot line to use.
