I realized I haven’t given a good update on where I am writing wise in a while. Not too terribly much has changed, I’m afraid. I have yet to hear back on the screenplay for Ichabod, or on the copy of Pawn of the Dead that’s been at the agent’s for a while. (Four months and change waiting so far on Ichabod, six and change on Pawn–but I’m a patient fellow.) In the meantime, I had been flitting from project to project, not really staying with any one long enough to make real headway–just wasn’t feeling it. I’m happy to say that I’ve now settled on my next book–it’s going to be another Middle Grade–my first return to that age group since Buttersby. It’s a contemporary fantasy that is set around holidays that are going awry. I’ve been plotting now for quite some time, but it’s starting to all come together well, and I don’t think it’ll be too terribly long before I’m writing again. That will be a happy day–I like to feel productive.
In any case–the short answer is that I’m still working on writing, but it’s taken me a while to get the next book in gear. Hopefully it writes more smoothly once I’m going at last.
