it's a great life, if you don't weaken

  • Mood:
  • Music:

everyting I write lately is a novella, and it's starting to piss me off.

Because it's going around, the "What I published in 2007" meme:

Short fiction:


New Amsterdam, Subterranean Press, May 2007
Whiskey & Water, Roc, July 2007
Undertow, Bantam Spectra, August 2007
A Companion to Wolves, Tor, October 2007 (with truepenny)

Things I did this year:

Long fiction:

Wrote and revised Dust
Rewrote All the Windwracked Stars
Revised Ink & Steel and Hell & Earth
Wrote and revised Refining Fire (with coffeeem)

Short Fiction:

"Boojum" (with truepenny)
"The Girl Who Sang Madder Rose"
"Shoggoths in Bloom"
"Black in the Color"
"Annie Webber"
"King Pole, Gallows Pole, Bottle Tree"
"Knock on Coffins"

Plus some nonfiction--columns and essays. And this blog. And about 30,000 words of fanfiction. Ahem.

Only counting fiction, my output was around 300,000 words. Which is about half of my best year ever.

I have slowed down. A lot.

Things I still need to do this year:

Revise "King Pole, Gallows Pole, Bottle Tree"
Revise "Overkill"
Write Bone & Jewel Creatures, or at least start it
Write a short story for Baen's Universe, if possible
Write a short story for Subterranean, if possible

Things I need to do early next year:

Revise By the Mountain Bound
Write Chill
Write Wehrwolf
Write the Boojumverse thing with truepenny

Things I need to do by the middle of next year:

Write "Wind-Up Boogeyman"
Write "Smoke and Mirrors"
Write a short story for Doselle

Things to do by the end of next year:

Rewrite The Sea Thy Mistress
Revise One-Eyed Jack & the Suicide King
Revise Chill
