I write mostly SF, though lately more Lovecraftian, and some fantasy. I tend to be mostly interested in the dynamics of powerful institutions (social, corporate, or otherwise) and in the motivations, tactics, and experiences of those characters who resist them.
I'll be working on a couple of short stories and film scripts and starting a novel project. Those are vague goals, but more specifically:
- I'll complete two short film scripts, or one feature-length film script.
- I'll send at least two new stories out to market, and revise one existing story and send it out.
- I'll begin drafting a novel, with the synopsis/outline first, and then the text itself.
