I'm taking a bit of a breather right now, although I still do some professional editing for other writers, as well as write book reviews, which I post on my blog at: http://www.mjbookreviews.blogspot.com.
I am also more actively interested in the Boomers Write site right now.
However, one never knows when the next writing allenge will come along and I do look forward to it.
I'm working on another novel, set in the late 60s about the turbulent era of anti-Vietnam war protests and Civil Rights militancy. The orginal draft made it as a finalist long ago in a MacMillan First Writers' contest. I have spent 2 years updating and polishing the book. It's almost ready to go.
A novel entitled Is Love Enough, My story. partial work can be viewed at http://maureengravel.webs.com/
A story called Liodar.
My latest novel is a contemporary one, set in New Zealand. ( I am a New Zealander). It is entitled Broken Silence. It begins in 1945 and is continued in 2009 by the original character's granddaughter who discovers long lost family secrets.
I am also updating some of my earlier science fiction novels to put online at Fictionwise, one of the world's largest ebook publishers, that I have a contract with.
I work on transcrypt the pot's of wisdom at now i been doing like 10 Pot's is 32 total lots to do not finish yet
A rewrite of the book as my subconscious mind keeps producing new perceptions.
That was answered in an earlier question.
I'm working on a few things at the moment: some linked monologues which I think will work as a short theatrical performance of 45-60 minutes; two full-length plays, one of which is quite light-weight and (I hope) fun, the other a bit more meaningful; and a music theatre piece.
I have a number of works in progress, but I like to write the first draft when I am inspired (when I have that luxury, of course. This is strictly for writing not done on assignment or under a deadline.) I prefer to write faith-building books for children and adults, but I'm not prepared to give too many details right now.
I'm in the middle of editing a book called Destination Abudai. It's about a western boy who discovers he has an Arabic family. When Jaz comes to live in Abudai things start to go wrong because Jaz finds that life is different from at home. Only his half-sister, Noora, who has the same green slanted eyes, slightly hooked nose and wide grin, is friendly towards him. Noora wants to be a C.I.A. spy when she gets older and she practises by spying on her own family and she’s learned a frightening secret about their devout cousin, Tariq – a secret that puts Jaz’s life in danger.
Mainly blogs and research information on the Helderberg catastrophe in 1987. I do stray into the Hegelian Dialectics and principles and as well, examine situations involving the Delphi Technique as applied to altering consensus driven world-views, consumerism and population manipulation. This is the foundation for a new book that will tie the IMF, UN and multinationals together concerning a series of catastrophes that have been used to steer public opinion, drive paradigm shifts in thinking and destroy countries.
Yes.. the addictive powers of writing…when the urge surges through your veins there is no stopping to the distance a writer will venture out on…. Every writer has a work blowing in the wind! Now I’m working on three books…one fiction and two non-fiction.
