Novel. Now!

28368403-vector-silhouette-of-a-man-sitting-at-a-computer-on-a-white-backgroundAt long last I’m finally returning to committed work on what I have codenamed Project: Blood-Borne.  That’s the umbrella codename for a long-gestating trilogy of novels I initially conceived just days before Halloween in 2009.  Yeah, I know, that was a long ass time ago (jaysis, nearly 6 years), but I…I can explain.  Actually, the one true, legitimate excuse is simply I was not quite the writer and visionary I needed to be yet to fully take on this huge world I’ve created.  When I finally decided to do my own little take on vampires, I knew I couldn’t do so without deliberately taking a stark departure from all (or at least most) of what had come before.  That required a bit of research of both vampire fiction and nonfiction.  So my particular conception, complex as it is, needed to marinate while I continued to ponder the cast of characters, their roles and motivations, and all the nooks and crannies I needed to successfully navigate the saga when ready. I thought that time was going to be last summer, but upon more pondering I made major changes to the narrative approach that required additional time to simmer.  I’m ready now.  Finally.

Although Operation: Remember Me is only half wrapped up, I’m sticking with my plan to resume chapter work at the top of this post-Independence Day week.  It begins tonight.  In a separate post later, probably tomorrow, I will reveal some details about the trilogy.

Please wish me the best of luck on navigating the turbulent waters of novel writing while working a day job, raising a family and playing in a band.

    1. Thanks Nikki. I’m trying. I’ve been at this too long not to finally get one done. Hopefully it will get easier after finishing one!

        …I sho’ hate to tell you this… IT GETS HARDER! Don’t be mad at me! I just met you :-/ But what helped me was I told two people when it would be available and I didn’t wanna look like a poo butt who couldn’t hold commitments. Put fire under me 🙂

      2. Actually, if I could chill on a deserted island with no income requirements and no family and social commitments and just focus on writing a darn book, I’d have been done a long time ago, maybe a dozen times over. I’m so easily distracted and way too responsible 😉
