I almost didn’t even want to post today because today has been massively difficult. But here I am anyway. There’s got to be one good thing, right?
Part 1 of edits is underway and I had a video interview for a job this week. Things are kind of falling into place.
Week one of editing is off to a start. I’m three chapters in and the story still holds up. I was worried I would start that spiral of loathing my own work, but not so.
September was a weird month again. Finished a writing project, fully settled into my apartment, and started classes for the last time. The reads this month were some catch-up reads, but also a few anticipated books.
There was a reason for the delay in posting: I finished Thieves Project last night and didn’t want to do an update until it was done. It’s exciting, freeing, and a little scary.
Horizon, the finale to The Bone Universe, comes out today! With intricate world-building, breath-taking settings, and complex characters, I was hooked on Fran Wilde’s writing from the first page of Updraft. Fran took time to talk about her writing process across formats and stories. Her novels and short stories have been nominated for two Nebula awards and a Hugo, with Updraft winning the Andre Norton and Compton Crook awards. I had the delight of meeting her at BookCon 2015 at a group storytelling panel with Tor.
