My current career hiatus is making me think about a lot of things.
As a result, something I'm planning on doing more of over the next few months is working on my short fiction. I want to use a section of this LJ to think about (and share) ideas I'm having, and to noodle through plots and character studies, and to playtest early versions of works. I'll be using it to put together outlines and "high concept" approaches, like the "hello kitty meets Kitsune" vignette I wrote here a while back.
Now, I know some of you won't really be interested in my playing with what Cory Doctorow has called "nerdcore SF", but it's part of my writing I'm now very sure I want to explore further. I've got a couple of universes in my head that are trying to get out, and I'm hoping that using the blog format will help me free up some of the log jams...
So, if you want to see it, sign up here, otherwise I'll assume you don't want to be on the list!
(And those who wanted to read "Tigers", I'll be sending it out tomorrow.)
(Of course, if you're reading this, want to see what I get up to, but don't have an LJ account, I'm happy to deliver one of the many codes I have!)
