This is the calendar over my writing desk. I hung it up at the first of the year to keep track of my goal of finishing a story every week.

You’ll notice that even though it is the last week of January, I have several entries in February. That’s because I am ahead of schedule.

Completed so far this year (and I say completed rather than written because most of them grew out of story seeds I began last year):

“The Island Of Forbidden Dances” (7.9k words) SF/Psychological fiction

“Mystery Train” (6.3k words) Weird Western–already sold.

“Heartbeat City Homicide” (5.4k words) SF/Crime fiction

“Serpent Walk” (6.2k words) SF

“The Hopeful Bodies Of The Young” (4.2k words) Urban Fantasy/Romance

“Watchman Mark The Tide” (3.7k words) Absurdist Fantasy

“The Irregular” (3.7k words) MilSF

“The City Of Dreadful Joy” Uncompleted, current WIP

That’s a little over 37,000 words, or about a third of novel. And it’s just January.

I’m not sure how long I can keep up this pace, but so far it’s going great.

Ahead Pulp Speed!
