Now What’s Next in Nano



Actually, I’m not in the process of writing another nanonovel right now. Rather, I’m working on a series to submit to as soon as the Green Tentacles people deign to open up the submission queue again.

Story, plot, structure, characters, and several details are fine already—I’ve worked on this project, on and off, for about six weeks now. What I need to do is get the pilot and at least the first three or four episodes in shape so I can shoot it off the moment the submission window opens again. I think this will keep me busy for another two weeks, maybe three.

Which, theoretically, shouldn’t interfere with thinking hard about my next nanonovel. But this series keeps getting in the way on the subconscious level; ideas aren’t coming in at the usual rate.

So it looks like I have to get this done first before my subconscious connects with me again in its official capacity as my trusty nanonovel generator.


If you have something valuable to add or some interesting point to discuss, I’ll be looking forward to meeting you at Mastodon!
