    My current projects:

    * A really really long fantasy serial based on Ojibwa mythology, the third in the series. Currently on Pt. 182.

    * Mentally planning out the fourth in said series.

    * A really really long anthro/erotica serial (kind of on hiatus for notes).

    * Rewrite of a novel I wrote long ago, part of a series.

    * Various shorter stories and novellas in various stages of writing.

    I might be forgetting some stuff. *shrug*

    - Working on my first novel and hopefully staying with it until the end.
    - In the planning stages of 2 other novels in which I hope to write in the future.
    - Editing several short stories and poetry of mine.
    - Story and Poetry ideas hit me all the time, so I'm often working on one of them.

    It probably isn't healthy to try and write 3 novels at once as well as short stories and poetry, but...oh well. :)

    Right now I'm trying to come up with a trilogy length plot line for 013, and I'm still doing occasional revisions of 003.

    I've got my fourth draft of The Book of the Moon on hiatus for some brain storming with one minor plot hole I've uncovered.

    That's about it...

    a book i'm writing for someone about having a sister, mother and very young daughter all die in a short period of time, that's currently in the polishing and pre-submission promotional stage, after a year of doing the actual writing...

    the occasional essay/poem i toss out when a subject presents itself that i can't ignore...

    the dozen or so 'whatevers' [virtually anything that takes words] sent to me for help, that i'm working on at any given time...

    ditto for whatever fellow islanders need me to write for them [legal docs/letters/reports/ad infinitum...

    getting my next 4 books in shape to be printed, dealing with the printer [when i can scrape the $ together out of what's left from my monthly ss check after eating and paying the sky-high utility bills we suffer from here]...

    running my donation center and writing appeals for books and support, plus promo material for that and for the abused women's shelters i planned for the island and worldwide, as well as the international peace center i dreamt up and hope to see established here...

    in my spare time, my latest 1,500 jigsaw 'project' that gives my brain a rest...

    I'm working on:

    - Novel called " We Were There" (title may change). Project is stalled for now, as I hit a major roadblock on where to take the story.

    - Journalistic novel (this is my second year working on it) about Cambodia's "Khmer Rouge" years during the 1970's. I've drawn up a sizeable list of people to interview, which I've scraped together from my father's old acquaintances while he was an English professor in Cambodia, their friends, and the parents of a few of my Cambodian classmates in high school/uni. A lot have refused, wishing not to speak of it any longer. But a few have consented by phone, and I will be meeting up with them in the course of the next few months.

    It will not cover the actual events during the genocide, but will only retell the memories and events of what happened on the very first day, April 17, 1975.

    I'm very obsessed with this project; It has wholly consumed me. I will be visiting the country next year or so to record some interviews, if possible. Unfortunately, this means, I won't be writing much else.

    - A comic "script" (I'll be drawing it so it's not in proper script format) set in a 1920's-esque world with some futuristic technology (genetic engineering) following members of an organized crime syndicate that runs the city where the story takes place.

    - And two other comic ideas that are too underdeveloped at the moment to give decent summaries of; one is about an underground city run by magic, the other about a war between two countries in a fantasy world.

    I am getting the sequel to my novella started called Twilight's Vengeance. I think that title will stick since I went with Twilight's Protection for the title of the first.

    A short story working title First Hit about a guy with a Mind like MacGuyver but who uses it to comit assasinations. My favorite one is where he gives a guy a pill filled with the venom of two bee stingers. The guy is hyper allergic to bee venom.

    Another project about people born with powers. Right now it is called Twist of Fate.

    My other project is a Space Opera dealing with Atrophy and the begining of the end of all life.

    A fantasy novel regarding the total economic, social, political, and religious implosion of an empire... It's more interesting than it sounds in that sentence.

    -First book of a series I've only very loosely planned. And that's in 3 years of planning. Oof.

    -Other assorted stories, some of which may be short stories, some of which may be full novels, I haven't decided yet, but I came up with about 20+ different titles, so we'll see what happens with what. I kind of would like to figure out which ones are going to be short story so I can get to work on them and then send those out to maybe magazine publishers or something.

    -The LiveJournal community called Autumn Write is helping me to get through these things, but I'm not doing a very good job of meeting my goals in Autumn Write. Quite the hellish circle!

    Working on a novel based around real events that happened to me when I got involved with the witchboard and psy-vampirism. It is on hold right now while I pratice with short stories. If I do not get a short story published in the next two years, then I will hire a ghost writer to rewrite my nove for me.

    Naturally then I am working on a bunch of short stories, mosty flash fiction.

    I am also working on my art.

    I am currently working on a fantasy novel that may be the first in a series. The novel is from an idea and short story that I wrote about 14 years ago and modified a few times over the years. The idea of how to turn it into a novel only came to me last month.

    I've also been going over all my old short stories that I could find seeing what can be done with them. One or two of the characters in those short stories are likely to end up in the above mentioned novel.

    The novel I am working on is my second one. My first one was a sci-fi novel and I don't know where the manuscript is now.

    Two connected novels in planning (2 chapters written for one, but it's touch and go as to whether they're worth the paper their printed on) fantasy/adventure but there's a little victorian steam punk in there too.
    One in the process of writing, sorry no title yet, along the lines of the fantasy/grotesque, good fun to write :D

    And I've got a reveiw of the Southampton Boat show to go in the mag i work for ... [checks calendar] ... 3rd of Oct, ... loads of time :p

    I'm shopping around a thriller to some publishers in Europe, so far 4 rejections and 3 non-replies.
    There's a second thriller on the go which I hope to finish by year-end, and then there's my blog thriller series which you can find in my signature.
    My day job is writing for a newspaper every afternoon and evening, so I really should get away from this computer for more exercise.
