A Quick Update on My Writing

Today, just a quick update before I dive back into my writing. I just want to check in and let you  guys know what I’m working on. Cafe Writers

So, this is what’s up:

Jamming on horror comedy novella
The main thing I’m working on right now is FINISHING my comedy horror novella, “AFTA.” Everything is taking a back seat to this. I’ve been pushing off some juicy, tempting short story ideas just to finish editing this and get it off to the proofer. Once I get it back from her, I will do a post announcing it….FINALLLY.

Work shopping my SciFi short story
I was able to workshop a SciFi short I’m working on. The result? They liked it, but the world building could be richer and more consistent. To me, that’s a great response. It means the mechanics (plot, characters, etc.) are solid, but that the story needs some work. Soon as the novella is in the can, I’ll do just that.

Waiting for acceptance of horror short story
Still haven’t heard back from 2 mags on my story, “The Ghul of Yazd.” I reread it the other day and I feel it’s still a solid, well-written story. I’m not giving up on this one. I have a plan B if it gets rejected  by these last two. Essentially, it’s this: Shorten and resubmit it. Again, I’ll keep you posted.


That’s all for now. I leave you with this article from the Atlantic which claims there is a scientific basis for the benefit of writing in cafes. I can’t say much to the science of it, all I know is that it works for me. As I’ve said before, I do all my fiction writing in cafes.
