Progress Report – May 2017

Progress Report – May 2017

May 2017 turned out as yet another quiet month for Star Trek fanfiction writing.

Posted Works

Barking up the Muse Tree | Janet Gershen-Siegel | jespah | Quill

First of all, on the G & T Show forums, I posted nothing. Because at that site, the forums were removed a few months ago, due to the influx of spammers. And at this moment in time, the replacement blogs have not yet been created or started. Hence, still nada!

However, at this time, I still have no replacement, and neither do they. Therefore, I posted very few stories and, as a result, the read counts did not advance too much.

And on, during May 2017, I continued posting Shake Your Body.

Finally, on Wattpad, I continued to post Spring Thaw.


See the Stats page for individual read and review counts.

WIP Corner

Because I finished and won NaNoWriMo in 2016, I sent The Real Hub of the Universe our for beta reading. And that has proven more difficult as usual, as people are just plain busy. Furthermore, this wholly original science fiction work takes place in Victorian Boston. However, I would like to put off completing the second book until I get at least a modicum of feedback on the first one, and that has proven elusive.

Also, the editing for The Enigman Cave is finished and ready for querying. However, I need to get psyched up to do that. It can sometimes be difficult to be able to mentally handle what can often be a lot of rejection.

I also worked on the sequel to The Real Hub of the Universe, called The Real Heart of the Universe. I had already written over 37,000 words in April. Hence I am perhaps one-third to one-half to maybe even two-thirds done.

Prep Work

I edited a Wattpad draft for the following fanfiction piece from The Times of the HG Wells, Where the Wind Comes Sweepin’ Down the Plain.

This Month’s Productivity Killers

As always, sometimes the muse just takes a vacation. And I did, too, as we went to Cape Cod to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Furthermore, I wanted to take something of a break. The Real Hub needs editing and beta reading. Hence that means I need to take any changes into consideration before I can finish the sequel and begin to outline the third book in that series. In addition, I must get psyched up to query The Enigman Cave as it is ready. I just need to pull the trigger.
