So! What's Chris been up to, writing-wise, since the semester wrapped up? Theoretically, I'm unemployed until mid-July (so sayeth the University of Kansas and their budget-cutters, despite doing a seminar on teaching technical writing and performing countless teaching-related tasks for the upcoming CSSF summer program), so I should be working on my own stuff, right?
Well, I have been! Today, I accidentally came up with a new... novella? novel? we'll see - and wrote a 1500-word scene. Should be fun: far-future frontier adventure with lots of world-blasting banned tech and such. For the past couple of weeks, I've been wrapping up the final edits of my novel, Transcendence, which is due out in a few months from Hadley Rille Books (more-specific details coming soon). Gee whiz, revising a long, complex novel is a lot of work. Tomorrow evening, I meet with my editor and cover designer at Aimee's Coffee Shop, where we'll brainstorm cover ideas. Last week, I also worked out the story and major characters for a new YA-SF book I hope to start writing soon.
It's exhilarating to have time to work on my own dang stuff again!
How are you doing?
PS: WOW, but is it ever thunder-booming and pouring rain outside right now....
