Where I’m at Right Now: July CampNaNo, SIS, and some bad news

Hello again. 😛  I’ve had another bout of invisibility the past few weeks.  Shall I start with the good news or the bad news?  I’ll pick – the good news first.

The July Camp NaNoWriMo is fast approaching and I’m super-excited to take part!  Becky and I are writing a sequel to our previous project, and we have an awesome virtual cabin of fellow writers. 🙂

I’m honored to be taking part in The Scriptorium Anthology, a new site by and for up-and-coming authors.  You probably remember I reblogged Michael Gunter’s announcement.  Right now, our focus is writing monthly flash fictions based on the prompt of your choosing.  So far, I’ve written about haunted boats and clocks, and anything I can do, Claire, Steph, Nathalie, and Michael can do tons better! 😀  If you’re looking for awesomeness in written form (or you want to see me actually write things on a timely basis,) you ought to check our site out.

The last bit of good news is that I’ve made great progress outlining the revised edition of Secrets in Seaport.  Looking back, I ask myself, did I really inflict that book on the world? o.O  The new version (realistically speaking, I imagine it’ll be the “five year anniversary edition” at my rate of procrastinating) will feature pirate’s treasure, more angry townspeople from the present and the past, more story, more depth to the characters, and most importantly, more secrets in Seaport.  With any luck, if you’re looking for something more substantial than a novelette, you’re in luck.  *fast-forwards a few years* Here, have a novella.

And now for the bad news: I’m not going to make any more excuses.  I have a bunch of drafts sitting in my dashboard that I’m never getting around to finishing, and I really don’t have any ideas for where to take this blog.  I also have some commitments outside of Allison the Writer that have become high priorities in my life right now.  Thus, this blog is going into hibernation for a while.  But I’m still a writer; I’m still Allison the writer.
