I haven’t quite got the novella rewrite off the ground yet. It’s one of those things where I’ll sit at the computer with the file open for several hours but will mysteriously fail to accomplish anything. I think it’s mostly an issue of not being able to get my imagination really into the story, so I’ll probably give up my plan to rewrite it without looking at the original first.
I’m also working on a new short story idea, something that occurred to me a few days ago. It’s pretty bare-bones and needs some creative development before I can start really writing it; I’m hoping to switch back and forth between the new idea and the rewrite, concentrating on whichever seems to be working best at the time.
