Working on a story right now that has a speculative publisher…they gave me some direction for what they want, and I took the direction and ran with it. Should be around 20,000 words or so. That said, it’s not exactly the kind of thing you put on your public resume, so I’m writing it under a pseudonym. Still, lots of fun to write so far.
Fifth draft of the novel is under development, along with the sixth draft. A good portion of work for this week will be lost with the assignment, but I’m okay with that. Hoping to still have a good chunk of work ready to submit to an agent by the end of the month. Who knows, I might even have a publication credit under my belt by that time.
