Ramblings

I’ve made some good progress this week. I’m on deadline with some side work I’ve been doing, and I’ve been steadly pounding out words for my current work in progress. I was up at five this morning and managed 200 words before it was time to get ready for work. Lunch today was a wash, but I will have some time before group tonight to write. If I can manage to get up early every day, with lunch and whatever extra time I can steal at night, I should be able to manage a few hundred words a day. Sure, it’s no thousand words a day, but it’s positive momentum.

Tonight my short story Shaken, not Stirred is up for review. It’s the first science fiction story I’ve written in a while. It’s not a very serious story, but it was fun to write. I’m not even sure what a good market for it would be, but I’m sure I can get some suggestions from the group on that. I also need to start researching markets for cyberpunk short stories. I know that I’ve seen some stories in Asimov’s that I would consider cyberpunk (to some degree). That seems to be my kick recently, and I want to get some stories sent out soon.
