So I finally finished the tie-in novel I’ve been jamming on. Still can’t say what it is, but I can say that it’s 70,000 words that I’m actually quite proud of, and it’s a novel that I think fans of the franchise it’s part of will enjoy immensely.
Today I plan to spend dead for tax purposes, as I’ve been burning the candle at both ends, and shoving a wick in the center for good measure. What with this novel deadline, spring camp, the L.A. trip, and my usual karate teaching duties and the great superhero movie rewatch, I feel like I’ve been going nonstop for about a year this past month.
This weekend is Balticon (check my schedule here), and I plan to spend the few days between now and it doing very little, save for some laundry, maybe a karate class or two, and this week’s great superhero movie rewatch (which will be Catwoman with Halle Berry). And Wrenn and I may take a museum trip somewhere in there.
After the convention, I need to write the short story that will go in the back of the new edition of Gryphon Precinct, I have a pseudonymous novelette to finish, some follow-up work to do related to the L.A. trip, and my Release the Virgins! story to write. Then it’s finally time to write Mermaid Precinct (only a year late!).
Some of that may get started this week, but not today. Today, I veg, maybe catch up on a few things that are taking up too much room on the DVR.
