Me: I need to finish the first draft of Life in Another ’Cosm!
Also me: But this other idea is an opportunity to clobber space opera with disabled characters!
Inspired by Derek Newman-Stille of Speculating Canada fame, I’ve decided to take his recommendation and turn a short story of mine into a novel. This will be my first space opera where disabled characters dominate the story.
So, this will be my NaNoWriMo project for November 2018. I think it will be fun, and I’m looking forward to diving in.
Follow me on social media and this blog for updates!
Also-also me: EEEEK! Can I do the thing?
(I’m gonna try to do the thing.)
Cait Gordon is the author of Life in the ’Cosm, a story about a little green guy who’s on a quest to save half the person he loves. Cait has recently submitted the prequel to ’Cosm called The Stealth Lovers, a military space opera about legendary warriors Xaxall Knightly and Vivoxx Tirowen. When she’s not writing, she’s editing manuscripts for indie authors and running The Spoonie Authors Network, a blog whose contributors manage disabilities and/or chronic conditions. She also really likes cake.
