In keeping with the goals that I have set up I recently finished the edits on "Sleeping Giant" and sent it off to Analog. I'm now working on "They" a dark speculative piece for Apex Magazine. I'm finding that as I let go and embrace my true emotions, my writing has become more effective, more relevant and more powerful. Not to say that I don't enjoy writing fun stories as well. "Sleeping Giant" is an action thrill ride. I've just recently realized that my primary inspiration all this time has actually been the aboved mentioned authors in addition to Harlan Ellison, and Robert A. Heinlein.
Along with writing this week, I took the time to read "I Wish..." the first book in the "Witches of Desire" series. Don't let the title confuse you, this is a delightful YA fantasy piece. My complete review is available on GoodReads.(http://www.goodreads.com/review/show/172474819)
That's all I have time for today. If i can just have your prayers for my writer friend RZ, I would much appreciate it. The world is waiting to hear your stories, my friends! Keep writing!
