What's New in 2773 (2020 A. D.)

January — February — March — April — May — June —
July — August — September — October — November — December

Writer's Resolutions for 2773

1. Finish "Psychestar".

2. Finish one story every month. See list below.

3. When I've finished 12 stories, collect them into another anthology: "Earthmen and Other Aliens", "Dreams of Earth", or some other title.
January: "Prelude" makes 5 stories eligible for anthology.

4. Add one root to the T́uliǹgrai Etymological Dictionary every day. By the end of 2773, that should give us 938 roots total, and around 14,568 words.

5. Other stuff: Periodic Table, sheet music for songs, more poems, maps. Get that stuff onto the web site!

Titles of stories waiting to be written:

♦ "A New Viewpoint" January! Completes "Eoverai", doesn't qualify for EOA or DoE because the setting is Outside, not an Inside Earth. Might well take the whole month to write.

♦ "Life Is Funny That Way" (DoE)
♦ "Boy and the Shinyfaces" (EOA)
♦ "Godparent Stories" (DoE)
♦ "The $6 Million Choice" (DoE) (Skyburst)
♦ "Death of a Demi-God" (EOA) (Roma Aeterna — keep it SHORT!)
♦ "Relatively Speaking" (EOA)
♦ "The Sound of His Wings" (EOA)
♦ "Stowaway" (DoE)
♦ "Fast As Thought" (DoE)
♦ "Daredevil Returns" (DoE)
♦ "Epolidendum" (Outside)
♦ "Firebird" (DoE)
♦ "Little Girl Lost" (EOA) (Skyburst)
♦ "Order and Chaos" (DoE)
♦ "Squab" (DoE) (an episode of "The Mob Squad")
♦ "The Agency" (DoE) (SHORT story!)
♦ "The Girl Who Prayed" (DoE) (SHORT story — F&SF)
♦ "Thinking Big" (DoE)
♦ "A Weasel of Mass Destruction" (DoE)
♦ "Who Are You?" (DoE)

(DoE) = Suitable for anthology called "Dreams of Earth", because it was a dream
(EOA) = Not a dream, but an Inside story suitable for "Earthmen and Other Aliens"
