So we have passed the mid-point on the Clarion West write-a-thon and here’s where I’m at:
Finished draft of Short Story 1.
Thought up, worked out and started Short Story 2.
Also wrote a non-fiction piece for Fantasy Magazine and made some really good progress on my YA novel at the same time, so bonus!
Short Story 2 is a fantasy story that was inspired by a dream in which I was describing a story — in the dream, I described a female centaur that wakes up next to a dwarf, and sees a step ladder next to the bed, and says, “Oh gods, what did I do last night?” Suffice to say, I did not go in the obvious direction that suggested, but when I started asking why she was in that situation it did inspire a centaur story.
I’ll post an excerpt once I have one worth posting.
