I haven't done much writing this year :( Back in February I worked on editing my novel while I was at Storm's but I still haven't gotten beyond those first four chapters and the appendices. I've written three or four short stories and some poetry for Outworlders. Haven't written any Wraeththu fan fic, I don't think, which completely sucks. I have ideas, some quite detailed, for all sorts of things, but I can't seem to get started -- can't decide what to do.
Anyway, I put it to you folk: What should I work on? Options are:
- Original SF novel; been working on it 3 years now?
- Wraeththu novella, expansion of "Angry City" into something much longer.
- Wraeththu novella/story showing Galhea's side of things during time period of Ghosts, with Cobweb, Snake, Moon, Tyson, etc.
- Other original stories.
I think I should work on the novel, although it's the hardest of the options. But in the end, all want to do is get something DONE that's substantial, with me as sole author, that I feel proud of.
I am still so excited about this afternoon and then the shoes!

Meanwhile Luckie has decided that the $3 aluminum soda can toy I got at Mingei is the most fascinating toy ever. Mind you, she can't operate it on her own, as it's a people-operated toy, similar to a gyroscope, but when I run it, she is utterly fascinated. Actually the first time she ran off in fright, but just now I showed it to her again, and she got that "WHAT is THAT?" expression on her. Then she studied it for a while, then she stuck her paw in it to stop it. Then she started trying to sniff it while in motion and getting whopped on the nose but not caring. Then she started biting the wire, the biting the rings, then biting the end, then trying to kill that damn toy! LOL.
And now since I put down that toy, she's happily chasing around the tissue paper they wrapped it in at the store.
