As a keep working on Sturm und Drang, I had an epyphany. I didn’t like the ending of the project because I felt there was so much more to write. So now instead of writing three distict works, I’ll just keep writing until I have a full novel composed of three 50k chunks (for a total of 150k). Not only that, I have enough background material on the SuD universe to spin off a few short stories that I can (hopefully) get published either online or in print.  It means pushing the revision date until I’m finished (somewhere in late 09?) and coming up with another idea for this year’s NaNo (I’ll worry about that in the summer).

Yet the benefits outweight the hindrances:

  • Create short stories that if published will help build my writer’s cred
  • Create a ready made market and even franchise (yes I am that ambitious) for SuD.
  • Perhaps make some pocket change of my writing until I start selling my larger projects
  • Keeps me writing

09 is the year of transitioning from a first drafter into a serious (a.e. published) writer. So I ask you, is this a good path to take?


  1. Hey Ralfast,

    Of course you are the only one who truly knows what’s best for you and your work, but it certainly sounds like a good plan to me. Go for it!

  2. Glad to hear it. Of course you can read it what you already have. I’ll welcome the input, of course. Thank you for stopping by!

  3. I’m in the midst of reading it now. I’ll send you an email when I’m done. 🙂

  4. I hope you enjoy it.
