A regular direct line into the fractured mind of a brainless zombie writer.
I spent some time this morning setting up Mailerlite and creating some newsletters. Hopefully it will all be worthwhile and I will actually have some things to tell people about. We will see.
At the risk of setting up for future repetition, I suppose I can update on current projects.
1.** Master’s Known Munificence**: This remains not quite done. For those who have no idea what this is, it’s a fantasy novel that is currently at around 96,000 words with a POV character that is causing me issues. It’s going to need some significant work to get it into shape and I’m not quite ready to finish it (although I am feeling the magnetic pull which is a good sign.) I expect this will end up around 150k and be just thick enough to prop open a door (if needed) or knock out an unruly neighbor (again, if needed–hey, you never know).
- The Mask of White and Red: Honestly, I forget. I think it was off to a good start but I’d need to come back and read it through again and see if I can get a decent draft out of it. Lots of work yet to do.
Secret Project #1: This is a collab novel project and the draft is complete. It’s a humorous SF novel–the first of a series–and I’m very pleased with how this draft has turned out. Watch this space for excerpts.
Secret Project #2: This is book 2 of the collab novel series. I’m up to chapter 3. I need to complete that entire chapter today. Pretty sure I can do it. This thing is writing itself. The characters are fantastic and I’m really enjoying the process.
Various Short Stories: There are too many of these to comment on individually but suffice it to say that I am going to have to whip myself in order to get these done. I have some longer pieces (novelette or novella length) that I should finish. When I get my act together I can write a bit more about some of these stories and the process of writing them here.
tl;dr Andrew needs to finish stuff.
Andrew J. Savage was born in Australia where they trained him as a lawyer and put him to work. After escaping the sand and the sea, he now lives in Japan with his wife, two children and dog, Max (who has filled the canid-shaped hole in his heart nicely.)
