For about a year, now, I’ve been working on a novel. (Science fiction for middle grade readers, if you’re curious.) And a few months ago, I set myself a deadline: I will have the first draft complete by the evening of 24 December 2019.
(What are my plans for Christmas Day? Oh, just flying to the United States for a whirlwind two-week trip to attend my best friend’s wedding.)
My day job gives me a great deal of time to write, but even so, I found Star Trek blogging took up a lot of time that I couldn’t necessarily spare. So, with season 2 under my belt, I’m going on hiatus for a few months.
I’ll still be around — podcasting at Antimatter Pod, sharing extremely important tweets on the Twitters, and if you have thoughts or feelings about gender parity in Star Trek novels, you should absolutely hit me up in the comments of that post. Or anywhere else, really.
(Unless you’re coming to tell me that there aren’t many women writing Trek tie-ins because women just don’t like science fiction. If you sincerely believe that, well, I feel bad for you, but on the upside, you’ve got whole decades of SF novels to catch up on.)
I will be back in early 2019 to blog about Star Trek: Picard, and may pop in before then to talk about books I’m reading and other whatnots.
