Squee!! Excitement plus. I finished my rewrite. Thanks to the editorial advice I received from Zoe Walton, I rewrote MISHCA, and renamed it SLEEPER. Hopefully now my blogging will resume.
It was a hard thing to take your baby, rip it apart and then put it back together again. The hardest thing was that I actual had to dump the original concept that sparked the whole MS. But never fear, it that concept will work in book two.
So what's next? I've got multiple stories that I will work on, and I'll let myself be guided by the muse. They include:
DESERTER: The sequel to SLEEPER.
KARMA: A Greek Mythology - a novel version of the short story I wrote for the Australian Literary Review's YA short story competition and was the runner up.
GROWTH: A YA Contemporary version of the short story I wrote for THE BASICS OF LIFE anthology.
BOY FROZEN: A YA Science Fiction that looks at twins, epilepsy, aliens and high school.
DIRTY RAINBOW (working title): A YA Dystopian set thousands of years in the future, where men are extinct and cyborgs help the human race live on.
EMERALD: A YA Steampunk/dystopian set in the future after a nuclear fallout and environmentalist rule.
Do many ideas, so little hours in the day.
