11/17 Update

Good week for getting back into this, despite being sick. I picked up an old short story (incomplete) and worked on it a bit. I didn't add a whole lot yet, but I will in the coming week. I have to decide what I want to do with it. Based on the next step, I will either have to drop it into my favorite category: Convert Short Story to Novel. Yes, I have many of those. Which makes the short story writing a challenge.

I also started the joint project with my friend. We're in the worldbuilding stage and so far working very well together. Name for this project will be forthcoming, but the genre is something new for me: thriller. I've done fantasy and science fiction. I'm looking forward to this.

On the personal side, the baby is cheering for da bears and loving all the yummy food we are giving her.

It Didn't Take Long

No, the writing bug, my muse, fate, whatever form it chooses to appear as, my Need To Write is here. It won't leave me in peace. It showed up in the form of my friend this evening, who wants to co-author a novel. This friend happens to be one of the guys I've written with for years in a fun-only, fan-fiction, role playing kind of way. We had a conversation, came up with a strategy, and planned to meet next week to discuss our plan. Let me put it to you this way: I've already done my homework.

This project is going to rock.
