Well, we know where we’re going, but we don’t know where we’ve been

I just made a Project To-Do List

Well.  It’s good to be busy.

1  Finish collecting and collating the tyops.  End September 9

2  Proof The Wrong Lance ebook, collate it, and get it up for pre-order

2a  Take The Wrong Lance down from Patreon and Splinter Universe. September 12

3  Complete interview.  November 1

4  Write short story for DERELICT anthology.  December 1

5  Write short story to make the pair with “Galaxy Ballroom” for Adventures in the Liaden Universe® Number, um…31? (eek!)  November 15

6  Decide if I’m Actually Going to Write another Archers Beach novel, or if I can scratch that itch by writing two novellas, instead.  Realsoonnow

7  Assist Steve as needed on the (two) Liaden books he’s lead on.  July 2021, July 2022

8  Plot and write the next Liaden book, but one.  Um.  July 2023?

The really annoying thing is?  I feel like I’m missing something.

Well.  It’ll come to me.

  1. Whenever I hear that line, it makes me think of the opening (?) shot in The Discreet Charm Of The Bourgeoisie which shows a group of people walking through shoulder-high wheat.

    Sure hope I got that right – it’s been a long time since I saw that movie…

  2. Sharon,

    Are there enough Archer’s Beach short stories for a book like the Liaden Universe Constellation?

    Maybe a novella or two could round it out?


  3. Well, let’s see…*gets out adding machine*

    Looks like we’re just a hair over 40,000 words of published Archers Beach shorts. Two novellas gets us to 75,000 — three pushes us over the 100,000 word mark, but then? I’d need to find a publisher, Archers Beach being, as it were, No Liaden Universe(R).

  4. Sharon and Steve,

    Having recently finished the eARC of Trader’s Leap, and seeing your list of work above, I just want to THANK YOU both for not getting tired of writing in the Liaden Universe.

    The characters you’ve brought to life are like old friends, or family, that just happen to live distantly. But, it is such a joy to occasionally get together and find out what they have been up to since last we met.

    So again, I thank you, and eagerly await the next “reunion”.


  5. Sleep? Eat? Ice cream on the beach?
    I like Archers Beach in any form you choose to provide it.
    And I’m glad you seem to be feeling better.

  6. It sounds almost as if… yes, that’s the word! You’re … … busy! Glad to know you have plans and hope you have some plans for life and rest in there too.

    And yes, the punctuation could be better, in that sentence there.
