Loving parents, or otherwise, conceive. Many moons later, there is a precious bundle in the world. For us humans, that gestation period is nine to ten months, a few weeks longer if the baby is like my kiddo and in no rush to leave the warmth and comfort of a well nourishing environment. I hear elephants take up to two years.
Oh. My. God.
I couldn't handle that if that was my body, but many writers have gestation periods this long, or years longer, with novels.
AMONG DRAGONS and MEN is my oldest WiP. Been working on this project for years. It's had a couple of working title changes but I'm liking this one best of all. Right now, no progress to report.
SEAMLESS (formerly NO COUNTRY FOR FAE FOLK) has some progress. This is my newest baby, now at 12,800 word count for its rewrite.
UNCOMMON is only slightly older than SEAMLESS. I've made a little progress with it, now at 3,700 word count for its rewrite.
What about you...have any WiPs that have been around for a while? If so, how long and do you have any plans to go further with them?
