Back to Mars, in a hurry

OK, so I am outlining a story I will try and sell to Tor.com.
This is a very long shot, and while the up side is they are looking for stories between 20.000 and 40.000 words long, which is nicely in my comfort zone, the down side is I have two months to write it, while at the same time doing a number of other jobs, and this is certainly the hardest market to crack out there.
But let’s admit it, not trying would be stupid.
kermit_typing As I mentioned yesterday, I am trying to ramp up my output – and indeed working on AMARNA1 was a great training.
And while it will still take some time for me to publish one novel-length work per month, I have high hopes for a serious increase in my output in the next weeks and months.

And because I am working on a tight schedule, this new project will start as soon as I am halfway through the new book I owe to Severed Press.
I’ll be recycling an idea I had jotted down for a science fiction story an Italian anthology had asked me about 18 months ago, and that I had dropped for a number of reasons. I have the research already in place, I have my characters and a general plot. So I am really outlining again a story. It’s a Martian colonization story, and it will be fun to go back writing science fiction (soft SF for Severed Press, hard SF for Tor.com).

Working on so many projects at the same time can be tiring, and stressful, but in all honesty, watching my bank account slowly being drained while the bills keep coming is much more stressful.
Writing is still the only paying gig I’ve been able to find, and so I’ll be writing.
Wish me luck.
