Mmmm, postdated blog posts. Your magic makes my blog look more alive than it actually is.
This seems like a fine time to set out my writing plans for the year. I think I noted in a previous post that I’m not working on Derelict primarily right now – I have wonderful ideas for it, but it involves a restructuring that’s . . . big. Characters are being cut or combined, neat things are happening, and I don’t feel like going into the details until I know them myself so . . . Derelict is firmly on the back burner. I’m still working on it, but little bits at a time. When I get around to finishing it I’m probably going to start from scratch. (Goddamn it.) On the other hand, they say it’s not a good idea to try and finish your first book first, so . . .
Ironically, my main writing project then isn’t prose at all (mostly). I don’t know that I’ve talked about Zosias much on this blog – I’m too lazy to Google, so it will have to remain a mystery for now. Here, find out for yourself if you’re curious. Yes, I know that that probably took more effort than actually looking it up myself, and I don’t care.
Anyway, a casual observer with access to the Zosias files (such as, say, one of the other devs) might think that not much is happening on that front right now, and they’d be right. I mean, I’m two bloody months into the year and . . . yeah, not much. But work is coming! I just need to finish moving, finish getting on a shift where Kat and I can work together raising Summer instead of her only seeing us together in the car, catch up on sleep, and other various excuses. More to come later.
