I’ve started a new project in a genre I haven’t written in for a while. It’s taking some getting used to. The scope of the story is bigger than anything I’ve written in a few years.
It’s taking some time for my head to get into that brain space. I know what needs to be written, at least I have a good idea of it. There are many things in this story and I’m truly working to get those things written well.
This came about after I wrote a story for an anthology that is due the end of February.
I enjoyed the hell out of writing that submission. I thought I should go deeper into a new world along the lines of that submission.
I’ve submitted more stories this year than any prior year as well as publishing the collection in October. I will get my first payment for that collection this week, which though small, makes me feel as if what I’m doing makes a difference in our house.
I will keep writing, regardless of the money. I want to get paid, as we all do, but I enjoy the hell out of the work.
