And because the novel for Angry Bitter Angel is intimidating the hell out of me right now, I'm...
Going to attempt a couple of shorts for upcoming anthos.One is the Coffee anthology
. I already have a character who drinks Kopi Luwak
, so coming up with a 4000-word story in which something terrible happens to his $600-per-pound coffee should not be difficult. The deadline for that one is August 31, so I'd better get on it.The other is the Cyborg antho
. I've got 8000 words for that one, a basic premise, and a (tentative) deadline of Sept. 15. Yes. It will star a werewolf with a prosthetic limb. Yes. I am headdesking mightily over this because I am going to be forever known as That Werewolf Writer.
On the plus side, Ben gets to sit this one out. However, for the coffee antho, I have no idea how I'm going to shut Alex up enough to squeeze something about him into 4000 words. I guess we'll see. I have outline docs open right now.
There is something wrong with me
