Boy, does time fly. It doesn’t feel like a year has passed at all. My last post, Gone, came about so easily from a writing perspective that I had thought things were looking up for this website. But I’m bad at keeping up with things and like a lot of other things it went to the wayside.
Things have changed so drastically in my personal life that I haven’t really had the time to keep up with it. I’ve missed it though and I’m pretty keen to get back into it. So that’s what I’m gonna do. I’m not making any promises, that’s pointless, but I’m going to try.
I have a few projects in the works. I’ve put working on novels to the back burner for the time being to focus more on the short and serial forms and in this respect I have a couple projects. I want to talk about.
The first is Gone. A story about a unique sort of apocalypse where people just disappear. I initially intended for it to be a single short story, but after writing it I had all these ideas for how the story could unfold that I turned it into a serial that I hope I can continue.
Another project is Derelict a sci-fi serial set in a world where the universe has become unstable and derelict ships from other realities show up randomly. I’ve had this idea swimming around my head for a while and I’ve finally decided to make some strides in writing it. It would be different to Gone in the sense that I plan for Derelict to be episodic in nature. Kind of like a TV show. Think Stargate or Star Trek, the former of which is a great inspiration to me.
I have a few other ideas rolling around in my head, but at the moment I’m just trying to maintain focus. Keeping it down to a couple seems like the best move. I’m hoping things work out better this time around. Maybe I’ll make something of myself.
Or not. You never know until you know.
