What writing project is everyone working on? I'm in the process of changing direction from short stories to back to novels, and so for me, this is a good time to takes stock In my near-future/Xmas/crime story, I just finished going over my editor's suggested changes yesterday. It's too late to submit a Xmas story to a magazine, and so I'll be sending it to the Writers of the Future Contest. My editor is just starting on my updated Oz story. She should be finished by the end of the week. It's destined for the Magazine of Fantasy & Science Fiction. I've been looking over my The Tourist parody. My Wisconsin math teacher solves the mystery using imaginary numbers. I understood them in high school, but no more. (Yes, I know they're based on the square root of negative one, but that's all.) However, what I've set out is sufficient for lay people, and so this story is going off to the Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine. Now, back to my novels. I've been planning for the second part of my high-fantasy trilogy, but I'm uninspired right now. so Instead... I'm about 1/4 of the way of a cross-over parody between a high-fantasy Count of Monte Cristo and the economic crash of 2008. I'd stopped when Trump's antics eclipsed recent history, but there's enough distance now, so a story about the crash again works.
