In other words, what am I not working on?
My YA WIP has a title. Sort of. The word borrowers or borrowed will be in there somewhere. Maybe. (I wouldn't want to mix readers up with The Borrowers.) See, there are certain malevolent spirits in the book who sneak into living bodies (body-grabbing) and cause some real effed-up mayhem (let's call it "personality confusion"). Our dear protagonist can see "borrowed" people, just as he can see the ghosts (or at least echoes of them). Of course, at this early stage in the book, he isn't sure what the $(#&^! is going on. Development of ancillary characters has been one of the weaknesses of my earlier YA books, so I'm spending some serious time putting the secondary cast through their paces as well. Basically, I'm plotting extensively before writing much more. So there, paltry word count!
Then there's the short stories...when will I ever stop? I've had three very tantalizing "short list"/"moving on to the other editors" messages in the last few days. These notices just make me want to write more shorts! Agggh! (but it hurts sooooo good)
I have other projects in the works. But those are still secret. Some involve my work; some the work of others. (tee-hee)
Oh yeah...the Shock Totem contest...beta-reading...a few subs for the Sand Chapbooks to read...
Good thing spring break is next week, huh?
