The short story/novella is finished. Wait, let me rephrase. The first draft is finished. It needs work, of course. They always do. And I’m not entirely sure what it’s going to look like when all that work is done. But for the inspiration, and the subject matter, alone, it has a special place in my heart. Originally for a sub call, it’s at least 4k over the limit. We’ll see how long it is once I’m done editing, fixing, and polishing. But I’m letting them sit right now, and the real work will begin after Christmas.
There’s already new boys clamoring for attention in my head. We’re starting to work on plot together.
There was an amusing incident last night when my challenger and I realized we were all off kilter with the flash fics. But we got that sorted out, they are in the spreadsheet (which basically means they’re written in stone of course) and we’re working on them. We’re far into January with them now. Since we started this, it’s been wonderful to have fics written ahead of time, and I’m not scrambling the night before, trying to come up with something to write. And I’m certainly having a hell of a fun time with the challenges that the Admiral gives me. I’m still having a blast, and I love that.
And speaking of flash fics…
Pumpkin Rolls and Porn Sounds, my standalone novella, releases in February! *Yay!* I don’t have the exact day yet, but I’ll be sure to let you know when that happens. There’s going to be a couple of fun promos going on there, and a good deal, if not all, of February’s flash fics will feature Joshua and Will. That’ll be fun, right? You’ll get to see more of them, maybe their continuing saga. I really adore these boys, I do, and I’m really excited to bring them to you. Pretty soon, I’ll be sharing the adorable cover with you, done by the amazing AngstyG, and I know you’ll love it as much as I do.
The end of the year is fast approaching, and I’m not sure how much I’ll be around in the coming week. Flash fics will go up, of course, but let me take a moment here to wish everyone a happy, healthy, wonderful holiday season! Enjoy it! And may your 2015 dawn bright, shiny, and new!
