It’s been quite some time since my last post, but I am still alive and kicking. My friends on twitter keep asking me where I’m at in my story, and when will I be finished. My first response is “I don’t know”, but I usually give some explanation of where I’m at. The problem is, that while I have been writing and making progress, it’s been in places of the story that are near or at the end.
Here is a list of things I’ve accomplished:
- I’ve written the ending! Yes, that’s what I said, the ending…the problem is that I’m still struggling with the beginning. I’m not quite sure where to begin. Do I start by introducing Daelan’s (Primary Character) personality in a sports or similar format, or do I launch directly into one of his “missions” with some of the other main characters? Decisions, decisions…
- I’ve discovered that this story is long…like really long! It will have to be a series of books just to tell it. I’m both excited and horrified by this giant prospect. I’ve never written a book yet, and the magnitude of this undertaking is a bit overwhelming.
- This is one of the most important discoveries I’ve made so far. I’ve decided to make the story, especially its characters, as real as possible. This means tons of scientific and psychological research are needed for many parts of the books. It’s beyond all the research and notes I’ve already taken. The task is a bit daunting if you ask me. 🙂
So there you have it folks, an update on where I’m at. Hopefully this answers most of the questions. If any of you want more, just ask. I’ll make sure you get an answer…even if it’s one you won’t like. Now, having said that with a smirk on my face, I’ll take my leave.
