UWG

Made the cut last night and I'm officially a member of the Untitled Writers Group.

Which is good, because it's going to force me to write every day so I'll have something to submit every two weeks. It will keep me in a crit state of mind as well. I'm a firm believer in the critique process; once you set your mind in the right tracks, you're able to improve your writing.

So, first order of business this week is rewriting "Sacrifices." Second order, outline for either Doe or The Sun Also Sets. In fact, Here's a poll:

Poll #1100430 New Year, New Projects

What novel should the muse get?

Doe
3(42.9%)
The Sun Also Sets
4(57.1%)


The first option is the second novel I attempted, way back before the century changed. I'm going to try a fantasy setting this time. When it was a science fiction novel, it was about a clone used as a sex slave. "Romeo, Unbound" is a stand-alone novelette that would work as an opening chapter, but it's found the recycle bin everywhere I've sent it. the fantasy slant I'm considering is changing Romeo/Doe from a clone and writing him as a golem.

The second option is the sequel to Only The Dead, which is the historical vampire romance currently under submission with agents. The editor who was kind enough to read it really liked it and thought it was "uber-commercial" but I've yet to get anything but a rejection to the proposal. Partly my fault for writing a horrible synopsis in the 2-5 pages allowed by the various agent requirements, partly just the luck of the draw. The one response I got from an agent was polite and professional and the speed with which it was sent was greatly appreciated.

And, lastly, I'm going to be rewriting/tightening "Mother of Exiles" late next week once I get edits from Ideomancer.

Tell me more about this group. Is it open to others who are interested? Where would I go to find out if I might qualify if it is?
