Kicking off last week with an evacuation at work…no one harmed, just our new UPS system catching on fire. It was a fume filled arvo in the broom closets we call “Edit Suites” but I survived. My week ended on an enjoyable note with a 8 hour session of the Dark Souls board game to celebrate Straylia Day, late night D&D on Saturday and today I get to write my first proper blog post! All’s well that ends well…right?
Novel Update: The Thought Dump! The simple process of emptying your thoughts onto paper. I’ve been jotting down all my ideas for the novel and now it’s time to put them onto index cards. Once I have all my ideas on index cards I can start ordering them to get a rough plot line. This should allow me to see what does and does not work, also revealing any plot holes along the way…or at least that is the theory. I also like the name because it sounds like my brain is taking a poop. On top of Thought Dumping I have been working on a few sketches to help with inspiration for the world I am building for the novel. I’ll post some of these up in next Monday’s post.
I’ve also written up a little blurb for you:
The novel is the tale of two friends who abandon their religion to head down a bloody and horrifying path of revenge against a powerful Blood Mage. Kemp is a hallowed gunslinger and swordsman. Little Star is a servant who dreams of being a famous gunslinger. Their God will not let their apostasy go unpunished and the Blood Mage will not be an easy target.
