Busy Winter Lies Ahead

Born in Turlock, California in 1964, Richard Paolinelli began his writing career as a freelance writer in 1984 in Odessa, TX and gained his first fiction credit serving as the lead writer for the first two issues of the Elite Comics sci-fi/fantasy series, Seadragon.

Ok, maybe it’s a good thing I’m boycotting any sports league that allows its players to kneel during the national anthem, because I just took a look at my writing to-do list and DA-YUM, is it long. I don’t have time to watch many games on TV right now.

santa-naughty-nice-list.ju.topSt. Nick’s naughty/nice list is a sticky note by comparison.

The projects currently underway include: producing audiobook editions of Escaping Infinity and the entire recently completed Jack Del Rio series, writing two short stories to submit to upcoming anthologies and co-writing a western novel, The Last Lonely Trail.

All the while dealing with negotiations for possible adaptations to film and translations into a foreign language and the final edits for two short stories I have written that will appear in two anthologies later this year along with waiting to hear the fate of two other anthology submissions.

Once all of those items are filed away into the “Done” box, I will be co-editing, Pluto, one of 11 planned books that will make up SuperversiveSF’s Planetary Anthologies, hopefully starting a novelization of the 1986 Seadragon comic book series (forgot to list that in the negotiations area above) and likely starting one of two other sci-fi/fantasy projects I have plotted out already. Oh, did I forget to mention a 12-part graphic novel I am looking for an artist to collaborate with?

Unlike a certain “writer” I’ve mentioned before, I don’t suffer from Writer’s Block. Nor, il_fullxfull.449779540_b92sunlike a certain favorite blogger of Chinese bots, do I suffer from Writer Envy.

I suffer from Writer’s Avalanche. Anyone got a cloning machine I can borrow? Seriously, I need two or three more of me around here.

The winner, of course, is you and anyone else who enjoys reading stories meant to entertain – and not preach an ideology or tell you how
