I’m a little late to the party on last month’s question “What are you working on in 2010?” but I was waiting to see if I could let you all in on a few secret projects I’ve been tinkering on in the lab.
As it turns out … I can’t. Not yet, anyway.
It’s not that I don’t want to say what I’m working on, because I really, really do. And it’s not that I don’t trust all of you with the information, because, well … now that I think of it, some of you are kind of shifty looking. I’ve seen pictures. It’s just that there are certain things that can’t be said until someone says you can say them. Because if you say them too soon, they might go away. So, keeping in mind that some things are better left unsaid, I will say that I’m working on several fun projects right now that may or may not be published in the next year or so, once all is said and done.
First off, there’s the manuscript that I spent a lot of last year working on. That’s a personal project that is part comedy, part action/adventure and all kinds of wacky, zany fun. At least it was for me. No one has actually told me that I can’t tell you what it is, but since I haven’t started sending it out to editors yet, I don’t want to jinx it by saying anything too soon.
As some of you know, in addition to writing my own stuff, I write stuff for other people as well. Books based on TV shows and movies. And I’m especially not allowed to talk about those until they are official. But I can maybe give some incredibly vague hints.
On the media-tie-in side of my writing, there’s a project that I think you are all going to love. Well, maybe some of you will hate it. Who’s to say? This is the one project I’ve been excited about for going on two years now. The best part of it is that I will be teaming with one of my most favorite editors … an editor that some of the other Ro Com writers here may be familiar with.
And then there’s a project I really, REALLY can’t talk about.
Which brings me to the one I was hoping to announce right here, right now. I still haven’t gotten the word that I can say anything yet. So I have to put that news on hold. (I'm actually hoping that by posting this now, someone will tell me tomorrow it's okay to release the news.) It’s an exciting project that’s teaming me up with another awesome writer and letting me play in a format I’ve never written in before, while working with a world… you know what … I almost said too much. But maybe I’ll be able to say more soon.
Until then … Here’s to a hoppin’ 2010 for all of us!
