I thought I’d share with you today the projects that I’m working on:
My WIP is an adult fiction archaeological thriller (think Indiana Jones or Lara Croft), and it’s based on the hunt for King Arthur’s powerful weapon, Excalibur. I began outlining it back in March, and finally began putting pen to paper… well, fingers to keyboard in mid-May. I’m hoping to have a rough draft completed early 2012. (I’m a pretty slow writer.)
Before my Excalibur WIP, I had been working on another thriller novel since 2009: POSEIDON’S TRIDENT. I really like the plot of the novel, but I made lots of mistakes throughout the rough draft stage. So many that I finally decided the only way I could fix it was to re-write the entire thing. I’m working on the Excalibur idea to give myself space.
I’m also working on a short story whenever I have time. CHASE is a murder mystery which is turning out to be longer than I expected. It’s smashed past the 6,000 word mark, and is nowhere near drawing to a close. I’ve been working on it since I began editing my previous WIP, but since starting a new novel, CHASE has been left untouched.
There you have it: my projects. For the comments, tell me what your projects are!
