Salut à Moi!

Filed under: Fiction, Reflections — ktismatics @ 7:02 pm

Today I finished the second edit of my latest novel, working title “The Courier,” which means that it’s pretty much a completed project. Sometimes it seems like my writing just drags along forever, but looking back I see that I’ve written 3 novels in the past 2 years.

This latest wave of fiction-writing began as an experiment. I wanted to reorganize, expand, and supplement what I had already written into a loosely organized series. I’d say that the experiment has been successful. I now have finished 5 parts in this series, plus half of a sixth. There will be seven altogether, comprising maybe 500K words. If I maintain my recent pace I might be finished with all seven by the end of 2013.

Given that the experiment is working, maybe it’s time to see if I can get these things published. Truth be told though, I find looking for an agent or a publisher so distracting that I can’t write. Since momentum is with me and I pretty much know how to finish off the series, I’ll probably just keep writing.



  1. Excellent. Now wrassle that baar!

  2. That bear is probably posing for photos in Aspen by now. No time to track him down; I started the next book first thing this morning. I already wrote half of it years ago in France, so I’ll have to don my expatriate persona to get back into character as the narrator of this tale.
