Ethandune. You probably remember that I wrote this one in 2013 over the course of two months. The first draft needs lots of work: revision, expansion, overhaul, etc. It needn't be large: my whole goal in writing it (besides writing a good story) was to keep it on the small side. But I'm not satisfied with the first draft (who ever is?) and I won't show it to you until it is as perfect as mortal can make it.plenilunar
Talldogs. This is my current work-in-progress. I am almost finished with the first draft - in fact, I should probably be working on that instead of writing this post.
Lamblight. What is shaping in my head to be a kind of murder thriller. I know I am in no way ready to tackle this one, however, so even though it follows on the heels of Talldogs, I probably won't write it directly after my work-in-progress. We'll see what I end up taking on next.
Maresgate. This one is hard to nail down. I have components of plot, but I haven't determined how to write it yet. You know how this goes. Again, while this comes after Lamblight in the Plenilunar sequence, I may not write it in chronological order. Here's to C.S. Lewis and all that jazz.
Cruxgang. Partially more clear in my head than Lamblight or Maresgate, but still fuzzy. I can say that you should be able to revisit some of your favourite Plenilune characters here, and get a taste of Honour-Carmarthen interaction. Cheers!
Amaranth. This is a more tentative novel. I have only a few catalyst ideas and don't yet know how to unfold them. We'll see how this one grows.
Drakeshelm. Possibly the meatiest of the Plenilunar novels in terms of what I have in my head thus far. Of all my pending documents, I think Drakeshelm has the most contributions to its size; consequently it is the clearest in my mind. I may wind up writing this one after Talldogs. Stay tuned for inevitable developments.
Dondonné. Like Amaranth, this is a tentative idea, but I would like to flesh it out and pursue it one day.
Ampersand. This one may be my darling notion. I'm not sure why - it feels almost nostalgic, which means it feels familiar and sweet and it breaks your heart at the same time. I don't know when I'll write this one. It needs a lot of brainstorming, plotting, and organization. I hope you'll like it.
Between Earth & Sky. I am already 74,328 words into this novel, but I stopped to work on Plenilune. Looking back over the some odd seventy-four thousands words, it still looks promising. I look forward to returning to this novel.et al
Gingerune. Also put on hiatus for multiple (good) reasons. I don't know when I'll get back to it, but assuming I live long enough, I will get there.
Adamantine. This story has gone through several drafts, more than I can count. It was my first serious foray into novel writing, after years of preparation. Unfortunately, the current draft is still what I consider threshold material, somewhere between my excruciating elementary work and where I am now: it isn't quite up to snuff. My tinkering-ideas have so overhauled the plot that it will probably look very little like the original when I am done with it.
There are a number of stories here that I began and had to put aside. In case people were worried that I got bored of them and might never return, I want to assure you that is not so. I had to put those stories aside for rational, legitimate reasons, and I eagerly await returning to them.in conclusion
Here are my current twelve ideas in varying stages of undress: half done, nearly done, dabbled begun, unbegun, etc. Considering how long it takes me to write my average draft, revise it, and polish it off (upwards of years), I should be kept busy for some time - and hopefully you all have something to look forward to!
