The Writing Life

2003 is starting off pretty damned well for me, writing-wise.

I finished a story, have another nearly finished, and Mike Jasper and I are kicking back and forth outline details for a collaboration project.

I'm pretty excited about working with Mike. He's talented, and he's got a very easy-going personality, so I think we'll work well together on this project. I've only ever collaborated on a story once before, and even though it was a lot more work than I normally put in on a story by myself, the experience was pretty rewarding, and the story turned out well.

I hope this experience is even better, and I think it will be. Mike and I will be working on a story with two central characters. The POV will shift from one character to the other, and we'll each be writing one character, which should work out well. We'll see.

All in all, I'd like to get at least two of my novels back out into circulation. I'm trunking Biologics, though one day I may revisit it. And this year I'd like to begin work on a fourth novel. There's a project I've been intent on doing since I first decided to become a writer, an overwhelmingly ambitious novel about the emergence of true artificial intelligence, its evolution and ultimate transcendence. I plan to start working on it this year, though it's likely that this particular book would take several years to write.

In the meantime, I've got lots of short story ideas to work on, and there are always plenty more which will spring up when you least expect it.

I didn't make any professional sales last year, and I'm setting a personal goal of two pro sales this year. Even if I don't make that, I'll still be at it, but I have a feeling it's going to be a good year.
