(BEDM* is my attempt to blog each day of May – just to see if I can.)
I found this photo on Glitter Graphics and couldn’t resist borrowing it. It has nothing to do with my post today. I didn’t even know what I was going to write about until I opened the ‘Add New Post’ page and started typing.
I have a secret.
Well, it’s not really a secret because I just told Renee about it. And my agent knows about it and approves, too… But still, I haven’t discussed it (yet) with anyone else.
It’s a new project. A secret/sekrit project. You know, one of those pesky things. *g* Let’s see how long I can keep this one to myself, shall we? (Hint: probably not very long, knowing me.) This is going to become my Sunday Sekrit Project (SSP). I am going to focus on the projects I have under contract, of course, the ones with Real!Deadlines! as well as paying freelance web stuff Monday through Saturday. But on Sundays, instead of taking time off I will work on this new book. Because I am totally in love with it.
It’s sort of a new-old book, because I’m taking an old idea and starting from scratch with it. Rather than having it focused on myth and magic (though there is some of that in there, still) it will lean more heavily towards science fiction – with a touch of cyberpunk. Is cyberpunk dead? Even if it is, I don’t care. I’ve decided to create a new subgenre called dreampunk. Ha! Take that, crazy confusing genres/marketing categories. I laugh in your face and invent whole new terms. 😉
