Long overdue update

The novel is coming along well. Nine chapters in and at the halfway point of the first draft. Richard Thomas’s Novel in a Year class has been great support, and this first draft is much tidier than it would have been if I’d written it on my own. Fantastic group of seven other writers who are turning in some fabulous stuff. So much fun to watch these stories develop!

Finished Carina Bissett’s fabulous Intersections: Science Fiction, Fairy Tale and Myth class last week. Ended with six new stories. Two of which are close to polished. And explored some wonderful fairy tales and science with another amazing group of writers. If you ever get the chance to take one of Carina’s classes, I highly recommend them!

Revisions are taking a bit of a backseat, but four from my list of twenty are now complete and out on submission. With simultaneous submissions, one complete story from Intersections, and a couple poems, I currently have twelve submissions out. No acceptances yet this year, but a couple nice personal rejections. Working on hitting that hundred mark this year.

Other than that, staying in except for my daily walks. Saw a woman walking two Capybaras! That’s been the highlight of my walks lately.

Stay safe and take care of yourselves! ❤
