The Big Five Oh....
...not me. Not yet. I still have another year before hitting that landmark of despair. What I'm referring to is hitting the fifty thousand word mark with Argiope. There were times I wondered if I would ever get close to this far with that story. I would get blocked on it, shelve it, get an idea, unshelve it, get blocked, shelve it, etc. Now I have a couple of ways to go forward, and I'm being slowed down by options as opposed to blockage...yeah, that didn't sound right to me either.
Anyways. since Argiope would be yet a third genre I would be writing in, I'm thinking of publishing it under a psuedonym. I've already published both fantasy and ghost stories under my own name, and have discovered that fans of one don't necessarily like the other. I don't think I want to confuse things further by adding another genre under the same name. Hmmmm... What could it be?
Nathaniel Hill? Daniel Crowe? Hobo Harry? Rufus the Wonder Dog?
Decisions, decisions. They all have their good points. At least I have some time, although it just occured to me I might need more than one, since I have a Christmas story unpublished and also might want to write general fiction one day...like that steamboat story. Oh well, that's a problem for another day. For now, I just need to finish the projects before me.
Work, work, work!
