Time for another blog chain posting. This chain topic was selected by Abi.
The questions are:
- What writing related things have you done in the past?
- What WIPs are you working on now?
- Do you have anything brewing for the future?
- Are you setting any writing goals or resolutions for 2009?
What writing related things have you done in the past?
I’ve done a variety of writing projects. In high school, I was the editor-in-chief of our school newspaper. I also won creative writing awards, primarily for my poetry, but also for a few other things, including a script for a comedy called Feuding Families where “Sudden Death” took on a sinisterly literal meaning.
In college, I continued to write and publish poems in our school’s literary magazine. Once I started medical training, my writing took a more technical turn as I compiled case presentations and lectures.
And, of course, THE EDGE OF MEMORY is currently out on submission with several agents.
I also posted my first book (THE TWO FLOWERS) here on my blog for your amusement.
What WIPs are you working on now?
My current project is suspenseful women’s fiction, tentatively titled “Enter Like a Needle.” It’s the story of a pediatrician (like myself) whose kids are being secretly harmed by a patient’s mother who is out for revenge. The doctor’s trying to figure out who’s responsible and protect her kids, but everyone– including her husband– think she’s the guilty one.
Do you have anything brewing for the future?
Of course. But I think I’m going to be cagey about that. 😉
Are you setting any writing goals or resolutions for 2009?
Why, yes! As a matter of fact, I just posted some writing resolutions that you can actually KEEP on the new QueryTracker.net blog. 🙂
I’m not making any resolutions about finding an agent or getting a contract, because I have very limited control over that. But that doesn’t mean I’m not going to keep working my tail off to achieve it. Meanwhile, I keep stewing on marketing ideas. I have lots of marketing plans for THE EDGE OF MEMORY, and it sure would be exciting to put them into action!
