My god… it’s so strange to think that it’s already 2011. I remember the last millenium. In some ways, I think it was better – but of course I’m looking forward, not back. Or trying to.
My Helen of Troy novel is going on hiatus. I’ve got a good base to work from, but I need to research the myths and ancient greek history a little to have a better visual of the world of Helen. Unfortunately, doing such research now would interfere with my other plans, so it’ll have to wait. For the convenience of anyone who is interested in reading or re-reading Helen, I will make a page that includes the first two chapters sometime in the next few days. And, as usual, I will point it out in a post, so you won’t be able to miss it if you try.
Speaking of Helen, I’m thinking of titling the work The Life of Helen. Have I mentioned that already? Any thoughts?
My main goal for 2011, aside from attempting to publish my Mythology Project (for which I still need to write a synopsis…), is about my fairy tales. I am going to write some more stories, polish up some others, overhaul one completely, and look into self-publishing in ebook format. It’s really time to get my writing out there, I think.
As for the blog, I’m thinking you’re mostly going to see microfiction and progress updates, as well as a few musings on random-ish subjects of my choosing.
Side note: If you didn’t see the link to September 2042 in the last post, please go check it out now! I’d love some feedback, on the fictionpress site or as a blog comment, doesn’t matter.
Sorry for the mostly administrative post. I’ll try to get some new creative material up very soon.
May 2011 be your best year yet! Blessings…
Thanks so much! I hope so…
I’m not grabbed by the title, but I don’t have a suggestion.
Well, does every single book title have to be flashy and attention-getting? By the time I finish writing it and get it published, I will already have other work out there (or, I’d better) and hopefully will already have a small but sturdy fan base. I agree – it doesn’t grab me either. But it does actually tell you what the book is about.
