Still alive and kicking

From my vacation: The Badlands 
Perhaps alive is exaggerating my zombie-like state. I'm mostly kicking with a little screaming now and then. Thanks to work, writing has ground to a standstill but ideas are percolating so at least progress is happening even if the words aren't being written down. Short stories are still fluttering about in submissions. Novels are getting sparkly new query letters. A synopsis for A Broken Race is in the percolator.

And NaNo prep, yes, that's all going on in the background too. Mostly the prep for the regional raffles and activities at this point, but story ideas are vying for attention as well. I'd like to get back into the true spirit of things with a fresh new novel dripping from my fingertips, but the prequel to A Broken Race is offering me chocolates. A few other past discarded projects are also sending me notes expressing their affection. I'm waiting for that one droolworthy idea that knocks me off my feet. Or expensive chocolates.

  1. Do the chocolates really have to be expensive? Even cheap chocolate does it for me.

    By the way, the top of that rock looks like a giant phalic symbol. Did you do that on purpose? Maybe it's more than chocolate you need.

    Prequel to Broken Race would be interesting.

    1. You'd be amazed at how much phalic rock is sitting out there. This is only the tip of my collection.

      I have the first few pages roughed out to the prequel. I'm liking how it's going so far. That might win the battle for my attention. And no, it doesn't have to be expensive, just very good quality (which usually go hand in hand).
