State of the Writer
I thought it might be nice to share a kind of weekly update for patrons.

This first one is going to be public as an example to non-patrons of what I'm doing here.


This week is Spring break for a lot of the kids who work at my job which has led to an increase in my hours this week.  This is good in that I'll have a larger paycheck but bad in that I've been pretty tired and haven't made much progress on any projects.


Stories I've been working on:


Lisa's Story: Zombie Apocalypse - About 90% written.  For a while now I've been stalled with the thought of editing it.  It's a fairly long story, around twenty-five thousand words.  Every time I start going through it to find parts that I need to fill in or expand on I get the urge to start editing.  I know I need to just reach in and write what needs to be written so it can be really complete.  Then I can really start editing the whole story.  I have made some small progress.  The last time I read through it I added notes in brackets so I could more easily find the places that need immediate work rather than wading through the whole text.  We'll see how this works out.


Love in the Time of Comets (working title)- This is a story I haven't really talked about.  When I first started writing it last year I only referred to it as my Space Story.  It started as a riff off the old video game Asteroids.  A lone hero blowing up asteroids while missing home and loved ones.  Except instead of a boring white guy it's about a trans Latina lesbian without being about her being a trans Latina.  While writing the story, the lesbian romance sub-plot slowly grew into a secondary plotline.


It's mostly written.  I need to flesh out a few parts and then smooth out some scenes.


There's also a short story I've been thinking about for a while.  I had an idea but the characters weren't really speaking to me.  The other night I finally wrote down some dialog.  I'm going to work on it some more and I'll probably post a first draft of it here for patrons.


Ok that's it.  This update is a little longer than I think they will be in the future.


Thank you and have a nice day.
