Steve’s Update 1/9/2022

(This column is posted at and Steve’s Tumblr.  Find out more at my newsletter.)

Just a reminder, I’m using Q1 to catch up on things.

The Way With Worlds series: I’m not doing any work on this until later in Q1, since I’m doing a lot of “cleanup” of various projects, etc.  But the year is planned out to finish the disaster series.  I’ll be planning the cover conversion in February. Expect the Misinformation book end of Q1

“The Agile Writer’s Mindset”: This is still scheduled to start the beginning of Q2.  I’ve streamlined the theme more – the idea is to avoid hardcore Agile and applied systems.  Instead, it’s how to re-evaluate your writing work and how you approach it – because all the various “systems” out there are more rote, less “learning to think.”

Other Books: The compiled book on creativity is being evaluated by a pre-reader right now, and that’ll set the direction for that book.  The compiled columns I’m just going to poke at here and there until it’s ready.  I am also auditioning ideas for my next novel in a few months.  No real schedules yet, sorry.

The Seventh Sanctum rewrite: I’m converting over the generators one at a time, and using it to test the system.  There’s still bugs to deal with (mostly in misconfiguration) but it is working!  Plus I have a list of new generators to make.
