Works In Progress

Referencing my blog post from way back on December 6th, 2019 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, there used to be a complete list of those things at all lengths here. That’s too much work to maintain, so I’m pulling everything but novels back to just numbers to make things easier to update.

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 in each length classification from “the basic rough plot is done” to “just needs that final read aloud pass before other eyes are allowed to see it”. There probably should be a page somewhere with a count of things that should be out looking for homes, but that’s an embarrassingly long list, so I’ll need to think about that.

Working definitions (more or less SFWA):

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, I’m going to regularly forget this page is here and then do a bunch of updates all at once.
