End of March Writing Update

I'm going to do my March update since I didn't actually do it at the end of March.  I stopped writing the week before Norwescon (last week of March) and I haven't written anything since.  In all that time I've been theoretically planning to work on Chance Encounter, but I've written virtually nothing.

Anyway, I was a bit ahead of two of my goals so here's my new tally:

2013 Goals:

Goal 1 - Write a Grandpa Anarchy Story a Week:

January 2013

Jan 19:  DarkFireDragonNinja  (begun several years ago)
Jan 24:  OmniGen Again  (begun Jan 23)
Jan 25:  Veteran of the Bone Wars  (begun Dec 30)
Jan 29:  Nemesis  (begun Dec 10)

February 2013

Jan 31:  Turncoats (begun Dec 8)
Feb 3:  There Ain't No Justice  (begun Nov 29)
Feb 5:  City of the Monkey God  (begun Nov 26)
Feb 7:  Future Me  (begun Jan 31)

March 2013

Feb 10:  Roll of the Die  (begin Feb 10)
Feb 11:  Trouble Focusing  (begun, Nov 21, in theory)
Feb 19:  Dead Again  (begun Feb 18)

Goal 2 - Write a Tai-Pan Story a Month:

Feb 16  The Pilgrimage of Ian St. Ritz  (January Tai-Pan story, 10,000 words)
Feb 23:  Space Miner Blues
Feb 23:  Banker Blues
Mar 07:  Hair of the Throug that Bit Me
Mar 17:  Cursed Be Ye Who Moves These Bones

Goals 3 & 4

No progress on my other goals.  As for the Grandpa Anarchy book... I've reworked a couple of stories, that's it.


I continue to come up with new Grandpa Anarchy story ideas or seeds of ideas however.  Here's the current list, including what I had listed for February:

Feb 19  Anarchy Is Forever
Feb 24  Hero's Sacrifice
Feb 25  The Crystal Weenie
Feb 25  Alien Space Bats

Mar 09  Killer Asteroid
Apr 09  The Apocalypse Meme

I read There Ain't No Justice at Saturday's writer's night, and it went over pretty well.  I reworked it a bit today.  I read Stone Temple Space Raiders at March's writer's night, and it did not go over so well.  I haven't reworked it yet because I'm undecided on whether I can come up with an ending that justifies the length, or I just need to take an axe to it, or probably I need to do both but a better ending hasn't manifested itself yet.
