Hi everyone, gather around the camp fire, it’s time for some storytelling 🙂

My friend Luis “Luigi” Alvarez and I are engaged in a little writing spree of “microstories”, ultra-short little tales that may or may not reference each other and it’s been a lot of fun, so much that it’s leaving Facebook and coming here for your reading pleasure! Last year, I created a small compilation of our work so far which comprised 6 microstories:

We followed up with a purpose-built Volume 2 around themes of duality: Black/White

Enjoy! 🙂

10k

I just passed the 10,000 word mark on the current WIP. Yay!

For this occasion, I will share a bit more about it.

Embarcadero

Synopsis:
In 1938, a French pilot is hired by British MI6 to ferry a scientist from Stockholm to London before his discoveries can be tapped by German intelligence. With hostile forces on their heels and war brewing, will they manage to fly to safety in time?

I plan to hit 60k by the end of November, with a projected final wordcount of maybe 80 to 100… The goal is to finish the first draft by the end of 2015, let it sit for a bit, then start the editing process in February.

Work In Progress

Tuesday, October 6th, 2015

After a long hiatus I have restarted work on two long-term writing projects, the first a SF novel set in the universe that contains the spaceship Freylia, this very website’s namesake,  and the second a historical spy story set in 1938 that I’ve been planning for a good while.

I don’t know yet if I can work on both concurrently,  so I’ll have to commit to one or the other pretty soon I believe. I  have a little over 70k words written on the SF side, significantly more than the other, so that’s that…

We’ll see. I think it’s time for this universe to blossom in full and get to publishing stage.
