Today was in part a prep day for NaNoWriMo 2009, which begins on the stroke of midnight. But I’m also working on a story, tentatively called “Breathe,” that takes place on the same planet, in the late stages of terraformation, where my story “Cold” is set. It tells the story of how Pina Chomko becomes the first person to breathe the planet’s free air, and also a bit of Finnish folklore. I’m aiming to submit it before the end of November (since that’s the deadline) to Crossed Genres to fit the folklore theme for their January issue. This is on top of doing 50,000 of NaNoWriMo writing.
Here’s the day’s tweets.
