Life is… well. It’s life, right?
It took me a couple of weeks to get back into the groove of life after Viable Paradise. Now I’m back in the saddle, so to speak, on several fronts.
I finished redrafting my novelette, “Choices,” and submitted it to Tor.com. If and when it gets rejected, I’ll incorporate any new crits to it and send it out again. I won’t stop until it’s done the rounds and not found a home. Then and only then will it be trunked.
I’m beginning work on restructuring, rewriting, and revising the portions of The Remembrance War I that exist now, and adding more to it. My goal is to have the entire book done by next November, if not before.
I say “I’m beginning,” but the truth is, I’m pretty much done now, at least with the novel outline. I’m trying to decide if I want to write a synopsis/treatment, or just go straight into composition. Probably straight into comp. We’ll see.
In the day job, things are getting better. Not perfect yet, but certain students who are a complete pain in my butt are inching themselves closer and closer to expulsion. I doubt we’ll see many of them next semester. I still want better classes next year.
