Project List

*I’m on a lot of cold medicine right now, so forgive me any typos, misspellings, or grievous run on sentences. I’ll look this back over when my head is clearer, but I want to get in the habit of posting regularly, so here we are. Expect an update on what progress I’ve made with these in a week.

Nevermore

My novel in progress. I nearly finished Nevermore a year and a half ago but hit a wall when, in fixing continuity errors in the beginning chapters, I realized that almost the entire 2nd act didn’t work anymore. I ditched about 100k words, re-outlined the entire plot, and have been trying to get back into writing more frequently despite my terror at how much work is in front of me.

Current word count: 39,482

Short term goals: Finish chapter 12 this week.

Long term goals: Finish book entirely and find agent/editor.

The Night Palace

A short story based on the fairytale of the Twelve Dancing Princesses.

Current word count: 6,472

Short term goals: Complete story under 10,000 words.

Long term goals: Edit and submit for publication.

The Chronicles

A series of fantasy novels in progress. This is the story that made me want to become a writer in the first place, so I’ve been working on it off and on for years. I have a notebook filled with chapters from the latest draft, but that notebook is about two years old now and is starting to sustain a good bit of damage from travel, water, etc.

Short term goals: Transcribe current draft from spiral notebook before all my writing becomes illegible.

(Very) Long term goals: Complete a draft.

Don’t Drink the Coffee & Other Poems

A collection of poems inspired by office work and customer service.

Short term goals: Write more and curate collection.

Long term goals: Either epublish or present at a Projection Speaker Series showcase. Share with friends.

(Untitled kids book)

Childrens ghost story about getting lost in the woods written via narrative poetry.

Short term goals: Complete by October for showcase.

Long term goals: Illustrate and pitch to agent/publisher.

 

ETA:

9/1 Flash fiction: Currently expanding Business Transactions into an actual story instead of a potential-story-idea-wordy-thing.

9/9 192 Stratford: Short ghost story.

About Morgan Maria D'Isidoro

Morgan Maria D'Isidoro has lived in Baltimore, MD for most of her life, saving a handful of failed escape attempts. Given the murder rates, she'll probably die here too. Morgan is a writer of speculative fiction and poetry, a musician of dubious quality, cat aficionado, art history fangirl, kitchen sorceress, recovering pyromaniac, accomplished liar, and an all around person of questionable employability.
