A Writing Update

Currently working on three projects:

  1. I'm restarting Doll Wars AGAIN! I know. I'm ashamed of myself, but I keep coming up with Point of View conflicts and as the story covers 300 years with a cast of 27 separate characters, I need to find a way to keep it simple for the reader. I'm not into a Game of Thrones scenario where the reader needs a cheat sheet to tell who's who. I also want to write more action that doesn't include paragraphs of nothing but information dumps.
  2. I received an email from the multitalented anthologist, Fred Patten, who has asked me to write a hard SF story for his upcoming anthology. I've already blocked the story out.
  3. I LOVE Grade-Z horror films and I'm writing a story where a monster basically consumes the entire Eastern Seaboard. Here's the opening quote:
“In comparison to its size, the amoeba is the most terrifying creature on earth. It is motivated by two powerful biological drives: to replicate and to feed.” ~ Dr. Ryan Laughman, (2019, September). How we lost the entire Eastern Seaboard to a giant blob. Lecture conducted from Huntington University, Huntington, IN.</blackquote>

I am going to have so much fun with this ... ;-)
