I started writing January 20, 2008 after a 23-year absence from fiction writing.
Or so I used to think.
Essentially, I am a new novelist focusing on speculative fiction. If I consider my crap that I wrote as a teen as self-serving exercises, what I really am becomes clear. Thinking about that, I am going to quit saying I had writer’s block for so long. You cannot have writer’s block if you were not a writer!
I am a new writer after several abortive attempts. That is the only way to describe it.
Hello, my name is Anthony and I am a new writer!
Anyway, since the end of January, I have written two books (one science fiction, one near-future science fiction) and am one-third through the third (Young Adult Fantasy).
Can I actually write three books in a year?
I believe I can. In fact, since I refuse to let book three go over 80,000 words, January 20, 2009 looks very doable.
What is book four? Well, if I gather any nibbles on Bunny Trouble, I will start on Bunny Theory. If not, I will work on an idea that has been brewing in my mind. A crime solver set off in the future. She is a pragmatic investigator—using her wits and intuition to avenge the dead and hurt—while attempting to keep her four husbands in line.
Written in first person point of view, oh my, that sounds deliciously fun.
