dokkaebi: my ham! gitcherown. >P ([gulliver] schemer)
AUGH, so my Stop Spending Money, Stupid plan kicks into action (again)... nnnow! Now. Right now. I've eaten out three times in the past week. Got groceries. AND BLEW MOST OF MY WRITERLY MONIES ON PLUGS.


I guess it's a good thing I couldn't fob off my (last!) shift tomorrow. Though I do not look forward to walking to work in 90-degree weather. I'll at least make back maybe half of what i just spent D: Who am I kidding, no one wants to go out and about in this horrible heat.

Some recent keyboard smashing has resulted in a 20-page one-shot comic script, which me old friend is in the process of illustrating. I am currently writing another, probably longer script, which was meant to be a horror story but morphed inexorably into a cheerful romp of a thing and is now regaining some dark 'n' gory elements. I'm kind of really excited about this one, because it focuses on characters that haven't been rattling around in my brainpan for half my life, and loosely ties into another series I've been mulling over for a few years, but only in such a way that will be evident if you read the novels. Which I haven't written. Hah.

Know what I've realized? I don't have a single story to which I know the ending that ends on a purely happy note. I don't even know why. It's bittersweet at best. Except this one, I hope.

And by "working on" I really mostly mean "have scribbled a couple pages of in the past few months."

Also, these are mostly working titles. I'm terrible at titles and generally put them off until I have to submit them somewhere.

short stories
  • Small Prophets (revision)
  • The World in Evening (revision)
  • Islomane
  • Bodhisattva Blues
  • Noctiluca
  • Twilight of the Clockwork Gods

    What, is there a theme? I don't know why so many of my stories have involved religion lately.

  • thesis comic of doom metamorph
  • Lull
  • Pocketful of Posies

  • Swidden
  • Leviathan Rising

    horrible cantankerous things that might wind up as novellas

    One day I'll be able to finish things, really.
