Works In Progress

Referencing my blog post from December 6th where I described in very rough level detail my plans for the next few months for my writing and listed the number of incomplete works I currently have, what you’ll find on this page is the list of those things, stories of various lengths that are at least 1st draft complete but not yet what I consider final draft or ready for other eyes. I’m going to work bottom-up, from “the basic rough plot is done” to “just needs that final read aloud pass”. For entertainment value, I also break things into groups based on length:

Flash Fiction: less than 1500 words

Short Fiction 1500 to 7500

Novelette: 7500 to 17,500 words

Novella/Short Novel 17,500 to 40,000 words

Novel: more than 40,000 words.

I will try to keep this list as up-to-date as possible, but if I’m honest with myself, it’s only likely to get updated once or twice per month at best. It’s a big list.

For the individual stories, the line will look like:
