there is a story to tell…

Draft 1, completed

Well, after my proclamation last week that I would have the novel done before GenCon, I am happy to say I met that goal. The first draft of Mordraeth’s Rise and Fall (tentative title. I like it, doesn’t really go with the titles for the other books in the same world.) is completed.

So what’s next? I’ve been chomping at the bit to start on a SciFi novel. So I have started outlining that, setting up the galaxy etc. It’s a continuation of the earlier SF novel I wrote, set some 20-30 years ahead. I’m enjoying the world building and knocking out a very rough outline. I’m sure I will work on that when I’m not gaming at GenCon next week.

-Keep Writing.

    Hooray for world building! I pseudo outline and always get tons of great ideas from it, but as a certified pantser, it rarely works out the way it is outlined.

      Thanks Katie :) It’s definitely one of the fun parts. I do the same on larger projects. I’ll have a pseudo outline to give me a rough road map and somewhere along the way I head off the rails. Then bring it back around toward the ending. For Mordraeth, I had a very specific ending planned. Getting there was the fun part.
