William C. Tracy writes tales of the Dissolutionverse: a science fantasy series about planets connected by music-based magic instead of spaceflight. This series currently includes a three-book epic space opera cycle. It also includes five novelettes and novellas, including a coming of age story, tales of political intrigue, a Sherlock Holmes-like mystery, a Jules Verne style adventure.

I expect to be doing it, so that means during that time I write, or attend to writing business. Even if I only write 50 words, or if I edit away 500 words, it's still writing.

The first one focuses on a group of merchants traveling between homeworlds and the second focuses on Origon and a new space-faring invention.
I'm also reworking an unrelated fantasy novel set in a land like the antebellum southern plantation culture of the US mixed with Babylonian themes.(less)

On walking the same path again…

So…I had a writing plan for early 2021, and it’s already changed, five days in (it was actually by two days in…). I figured I’d write a little here on the writerly reach for excellence (and possibly masochism).





I’ve just come off recording two audiobooks between October and December 2020. These are the sequels to The Seeds of Dissolution, which I recorded in 2019. Seeds was a decent recording. It g
