2017 was a year of rest; 2018 will be a lot more active

I was quite ill for much of 2017 and I admit I needed the rest I was able to get; still, I managed to finish one novel and make good progress on a second, as well as come up with many novel ideas.

While I still plan to keep writing, I find it’s time for me to get back to work again. I’m still querying agents and I will finish my current novel-in-progress this year, or so I hope; I just will no longer have the luxury of writing any time of day I choose.

Wish me luck! I have a number of options which I am pursuing, and I am hoping to have something lined up by March.

Aside from the work I want to do to sell and write novels, I’ve come up with an outline for a TV series I am calling Microcosmos after the Cosmos series, which features information about microbial ecology and environmental microbiology- believe it or not, this links directly to a lot of current science policy issues, like climate change, GMOs, and the rise of marketing slogans used to promote “alternative” health products.

I don’t know how much time it will take to write screenplays for Microcosmos, but I hope to start the process this year as well. Hopefully some of the work I do in 2018 will make its way into the scripts.
