I've decided to let my readers overtly influence what I work on for my next First Draft Fridays project over on Wattpad, after I finish A Fistful of Water.
How? I have a five-question survey, all questions optional, which lets you make your opinions known on genre, length, characters, etc.
I also ended up doing JA Konrath's 8-hour challenge: Write a story and have it to market within 8 hours. I ended up doing a crack!fic featuring various characters from the Misty White space opera penname. I had fun writing it, but we'll find out if anyone else will have fun reading it.
It has some spoilers for various stories under that penname, but if you're curious to see what I came up with, it's…
Disorientate-tion on a Weekday Morning
Canni from “Buzz and Bunnies”, Tammy from the Catati stories, and Kintah from the Corps space stories all improbably meet, order Starbucks, and learn things about each other that, perhaps, they’d rather not know. Crack fic.
(A crack!fic of about 4400 words.)
Get it for free on Smashwords with the coupon code ZP85G (expires mid-September).
The fairly repetitive mentions of it being a crack fic are intentional—it's my attempt to keep someone from getting it without knowing what they're getting.
And Know Thy Frienemy is just about ready for release, so I've committed to a release date of September 10th. *gulp*
I've set myself up for an interesting autumn, that's for sure.
Have any opinions or thoughts to share on what I'm up to? Have any projects in progress that you want to share?
