Current writing project

Before I get going I would just like to thank everyone who is visiting the blog. I am very excited to see so many hits this quick. Feel free to leave comments, questions, opinions and all that fun stuff.

Just a quick post,

Awesome news. Unlike most people who are only attempting to write a novel i have written a couple. This means for you of course that things will be a whole lot more interesting to read about.

most recently i finished a hulking 554 page fantasy genre novel over winter break. the rough draft is only the beginning though. ahead of me lies the task of the dreaded second draft.

Besides the typical second draft work I also have to delete and entirely rewrite at least the first hundred pages. In its present state it falls more into the subgenre of epic fantasy. Changing this is my main focus with the second draft. I want to work it into a hybrid of dark fantasy and high fantasy. It will be alot of work. And, with any luck I will get it published.

stay tuned folks. I will be posting an excerpt soon.

About Michael Barnett

I’ll say it up front: I’m probably the most eccentric person you will ever meet. Currently, I’m a student at UCONN double majoring in geology and creative writing. I love long distance biking. Oh yeah and I collect hobbies like your average ten year old collects trading cards. Let me see if i can say this all in one breath. ready, set, go. I write novels, I’m a self taught bladesmith (blacksmith that specializes in making knives and swords), I brew alcohol (but don’t drink it), I fish, I hunt, I’m long distance biker, I quad, I hike, and I will be learning the martial arts of krav maga and kendo starting in a few months. Whew! That about sums it up i think. Interested in what i do? Follow the blog!
