The title of this blog post is meant in the “literary” way of course…metaphorically speaking, limbering up my brain, my vocabulary, my creativity, and physically, my typing fingers. The flow of inspiration is liquid these days, especially this past weekend, and I am very grateful. 5000 words into a new story has been liberating, and the sensation of my fingers tapping against my keyboard feels, well, quite exhilarating. I don’t want to stop, and I guess that’s a good thing.
So suffice it to say that I am now juggling three young adult stories – 1) Literary coming-of-age story (20,000 words), 2) an urban fantasy story (2,000 words), and 3) a post-apocalyptic sci-fi story (5,700 words).
I just can’t seem to keep my imagination out of the fantasy/sci-fi world – it’s my passion. I’m definitely going to finish the literary story because many people (agents and editors) seem to want me to write that kind of novel, but I think that the other two will help to keep the creative juices flowing. I have to, after all, write what I love.
I’ll keep you posted on progress!
