As I promised myself, a list of works in progress with associated word counts, so that I have something to refer to. This is mostly for my own reference at the moment, so I don’t forget some of the things that are there, and sure, I COULD do it in Evernote or something, but where’s the fun in that?
Armadillo Wizard, middle-grade – 19.4K (Probably has a home once finished.)
Bryony & The Beast, (YA? Adult?) – 53K (Finished, awaiting agent feedback.)
Boar & Apples, novella – 11K
Bread Wizard, middle-grade – 74K (awaiting second round of edits from editor)
The YA Night-Gaunt Paranormal Romance, God Help Us All – 18.8K
House With Bird Feet, middle-grade – 34K (awaiting agent feedback)
Goblins, novella — 35K
Regency Ninja – 35K (currently being shopped, getting second read somewhere)
Battlesheep, young reader comic — 3.5K (needs re-write of end bit, been passed around, may be dead but damnit, I love the character designs.)
Familiar Blues, middle-grade comic/chapter hybrid — 4.5K (Proposal stage, maybe after Hamster Princess)
Platypus Files, middle-grade comic/chapter hybrid – 3K (Proposal stage. Need to change to some other species, alas.)
Seventh Bride, aka The One With The Hedgehog — 15.5K — (Passed, possible conflict between YA theme and middle-grade writing. Shove in drawer and poke later.)
Dark House, aka Evil Little House On The Prairie- 15K (Poke much later, when copyright expires)
Moth-Riders, middle-grade – 18K
Not Dead Yet:
The One With The Barbarian Gynecologist – 37K (Stuck. Either turns into heavy political crap I can’t write, or ends rather badly.)
Angler & the Bluebird – 20K (Think I’m writing the wrong book. Might be serviceable with kicking.)
Slate, Ninja Accountant – 67K (Should get off ass and finish.)
Elf & Orc – Can’t find file, have to go digging. Stuck on ending.
Everything Else – A Zillion K
(Yes, yes, I know, people want to see the one with the barbarian gynecologist and Elf & Orc and so on, and they’re not DEAD, but they’re…stuck. Sometimes I get to a point and realize that I either don’t know what happens next, or I do know and don’t much like it. I won’t swear they won’t turn up later, just…at the moment, not in the queue.)
…man, I have too damn many projects. Still, helpful to have them all in one place for once.
