WIPs Over 200!

[About Cat Hartliebe] [Cat Hartliebe’s Books]

No, I’m not joking. I have over 200 stories with some level of work on them. Most of the group are in first draft set up.

No, they’re not all short stories. That would have been the case back in high school (I had novellas and novels started, but none finished). Now, just shy of a third of all my work are novels. A tad less are novellas. Less than half of those stories are shorts.

I counted.

I’m a little overwhelmed by the sheer number of works I have to write, edit, rewrite, and publish. But it’s nice to have an organized list.

So outside of Modern Werewolves (which is random in word count), I have separated them into correct size. Technically, the published group isn’t organized (go buy and read them). Dragon Rider is all novels. Leagende are shorts or novellas. The main stories in Leagende are novellas, the rest are shorts.

Will never see the light of day: (There are 20 stories classed here)

(Haha! You thought I’d post these. No way. Although if you compare the list to some of my wip lists, you’ll notice a few have disappeared. These guys aren’t for you at all.)

Looking at the stuff I have here, I’m thinking of formatting up an extra book for Leagende. It would include the Hair Incident, Cardenil’s Governor, the letters, and the childhood memories. It should be long enough when I combine all of them. You can buy them now in Leagende Series ebook, but I want to have a paperback to includes everything. The Hair Incident and Cardenil’s Governor aren’t available in print. The letters in the original book are in corrupted German (the second edition switched them to English). Undeniable has some of the childhood memories. It sounds like a good way to satisfy my formatting and organizing desires. (And there is someone who would love to have that in paperback form. He doesn’t handle computers well.)

I have several short story collections going: The Bet and Other Fiction Short Stories, Skill Less and Other Fantasy Short Stories, NJWP (bad name), Reworked Fairy Tails, and First Meeting X2. I hope that’s all of them right now.

Basically all the not complete shorts fit into one of the collection I made. I did that on purpose. First Meeting has 25 short stories in it, but it’s published as a group. When I get The Bet and Other Fiction Short Stories published my published count goes down. I have to unpublish several that can be found inside the book.

Right now I am working on Dove’s rewrite. It’s longer than the original and that happens often in my work. Novellas turn into novels. Not always, but sometimes. I know which ones would do better longer. Novellas aren’t loved. Shorts are loved. They’re meant to be read completely in one evening even by a slow reader. Novels are loved because you get to completely immerse yourself in the story and world. So the fact novellas is my smallest number of works is consistent with the world’s desires.

This list is overwhelming to me. Let alone to you guys. If something just pops with interest, speak up. I do know all 200 off the top of my head (that idea is creepy too). Focus on the twenty or so that are published. Ask for those I’ve started the story here. Look into the series I’m publishing (hopefully).

I should make up a post talking about my short story collections and what they are each about. Most of them need more books before being published. *shrug* As if I don’t have enough stories, I need to create more just to publish. *sigh* It’s a forever growing list.
