September 2018: A Change in the Air
Writing: I finished a rewrite on an old novella that has been waiting patiently for me to grow enough as a writer to figure out what to do with it. As it turns out, all that was needed was some self-confidence and for the novella market to come back. So, that was easy. Well, okay, there was some fiddling to do. And more fiddling will likely happen.
Finish Your Novel! came out last month, and I’m delighted to see that folks are picking it up. I’m also delighted to see that people are also picking up Jumpstart Your Novel. It’s almost like this was planned or something.
Making: I’m working on another revision of the pirates and sea monsters board game. More kraken. More silly encounter text. You know, the usual stuff. There might be some actual play-testing soon.
Listening: School is in session again, so it has become oddly quiet around here. When that goes on too long, I’ve been listening to Peter Namlook and Lorenzo Montaná’s Labyrinth. What? There are five of these? Damn. I need to go buy some records.
