Writing for the Universe

180x180 Winner Badge

Evidently, 'The Unread Writer' did indeed have 50,000 words in it. Actually, quite a few more than that admittedly low hurdle for declaring it a possible novel. Nevertheless, there's the great insignia verifying the accomplishment.

The next question is publication. Generally, when I've embarked on these writing forays, it has been with publication in mind. This time, I did it mostly to see if I could really vent for that long a time. Once again, the answer is in the affirmative. 'The Unread Writer' has a file, and will give me something to consider in the future.

Simply doing this appears to be helping my writing, and that has to be a good thing. One of my original goals, to actually make a few bucks at this endeavor, remains elusive. Perhaps, while my writings are generally unread, perhaps I've been writing for the universe and not some demographic.

If so, perhaps the universe will be so kind as to cut me a check. Thanks.

Cannibals, Dust, and News

I'm a bit more than 17k words into my latest WIP, "The Unread Writer." It's been some fun so far, although it remains to be seen whether there's 50k in it or not. Adding to the word count could get interesting here in a bit because my publisher has suddenly started communicating.

The latest communication was a call this afternoon. Had I heard about news reports dealing with crazy people on strange drugs eating other folks? Well, yes I had, actually. My novel, currently titled Dust & Cannibals, has cannibals in it. The book still needs more editing, but maybe an early eBook release would be in order to take advantage.

Hmm. Would I be interested in the book actually selling some copies? I seem to recall that being on my list of objectives, actually.

The plan, as I understand it right now, is for a quick edit to happen this weekend. At the same time, some sort of cover will be cobbled together. Release might be next week, with accompanying note that the real deal will be released (fill in date).

Stay tuned, sports fans.
