Work in Progress

A Great Deal of PatienceI’m hard at work on His Robot Wife: A Great Deal of Patience, but it is not going quickly.  I just finished chapter six, which took me 38 days.  Chapter five took me 40 days.  At that rate, it will be more than a year before I have the first draft done.  Part of the reason its going slowly is research.  Part of the story takes place in Japan, and I have Japanese characters that I need to get right.  I have no doubt that his will be by far the best robot book when I’m done though.

As I was starting Patience, I was also fiddling around with Nova Dancer, a space opera story that I’ve been working on here and there for a while.  It’s not going to be done anytime soon, but when it finally is, I hope to make it the first book of a series.

Finally, back in October, I was working on Kanana: The Jungle Girl.  This is a book I’ve had an on-again off-again affair with for a few years.  I’m achingly close to finishing, but can’t quite pull the trigger.  I hope to get back to it this summer.  It will literally take two weeks to finish, if I can just get to it.

  1. Is “Nova Dancer” the same thing as “82 Eridani”? Or is that two separate projects?

    I’ve been waiting for “82 Eridani” since the Carter administration! 🙂

  2. Two separate projects. 82 Eridani will be 7 long novels, and (at last for me) more hard sci-fi. Nova Dancer is a novella– kind of Firefly meets Star Wars.

    Yes, I know I need to get back to it, too. 😓 Only 8 weeks till summer! 😣
