New Writing Project, Wolf Trek Edits, and Beta Reading a Great Demonic Possession Novel: The Priest of Orpagus #barrioblues
These last few weeks have been a challenge, which is why I haven’t been blogging as much. Still, I am pulling through the energy slump muck and getting back on the keyboard. (It’s not the same thing as a writer’s block, and I understand a little better why some writers lose weeks of writing time.)
Last week, I started working on “Nail Shop Warriors”, and am waiting to get back the next bit from my writer-friend Hector Cruz. The story is a magical realism martial arts story with Buddhist nuns and evil forces. I've been working on this story concept for a while, but needed the martial arts expertise. It’s been fun to write especially since I am working from Hector’s plot line. I fleshed out the characters. We are hoping to submit that to a speculative fiction anthology or self-publish it.
Second, this weekend, I am working on editing Wolf Trek. This piece has been challenging to revise. However, I have a great editor, and I’m sure between the two of us we will do something innovative. Or done. Done is okay, too.
Finally, I want to give a shout out to P.C. Darkcliff’s upcoming novel The Priest of Orpagus. It is a dark fiction piece and sure to rock the demon fiction genre. P.C. is a great at novel settings and has this one set in Turkey. You can see an image of his amazing cover reveal below (his illustrator does a bang-up job).
Well, I hope you are having a great start to your writing week!
