where the writers are
Work in progress

Taking a page from 'Nathan, here's a peek inside the folder on my computer labeled "3. WORKING" (in case you're interested, the others are "1. PUBLISHED" and "2. DONE").

  • A Murder of Crows
  • Amazons (Hey! That one's a book!) 
  • Awakening
  • Celestine
  • dog
  • fiveminutefiction
  • Haven (Oh my! So's this one!)
  • hearts
  • Seven Boxes
  • story (yes, really, that's the filename—I haven't opened the file since 2002; I have no idea what that one's about)
  • Straightening Up
  • Tea
  • The Client
  • The Curious Case of Buttons (it's about a cat named Buttons—no, really; yes, I know it needs a new title....)
  • The Messenger (this one will never see the light of day, I assure you)
  • The Teacher

And just for today, I'll tell you about the files in the "2. DONE" folder, because I have a feeling some of them really aren't—done, that is:

  • Blackout
  • By the Numbers
  • Heroine
  • Normal
  • Reunion (that one's not done so much as dead and buried)
  • Something like Heaven
  • The Long Ride Home
  • The Sidekick
  • Waiting Room
  • Walking (that one I originally wrote in 1988—I cringe at the thought of opening it and reading what I thought was good 23 years ago)

This doesn't even include the stories that have been started and exist in a file called "ideas.doc"—one of those in particular I am really eager to start, but it'll have to wait until next year, once I clear my current projects list.

So, since 'Nathan made the same offer, if you name one of these, I'll tell you what it's about. Mostly. Maybe.
