Heading for two novels?
I had originally conceived of one, rather large novel, with two distinct yet related parts. As I continue to make rather fast headway, I realize that it might be a good idea to not split the book in two but create two books, a part one and two.
The main motivation is that as I chug along with part one - not even close to the climax and ending - the book is going to be massive. Far be it from. me to close down and censor the muse at this point. As I mentioned last blog, the book is writing itself due to the many supernatural creatures who have stepped up and want their voices to be heard. And heard you shall be!
Now, don't get me wrong, I'm not ploughing along directionless and I still have a clear picture of where both part one and part two are going and more importantly ending. To use a cliche, the journey is more important that the destination. It's difficult to convey just how much I am enjoying the journey. Think of a seagull that's just snatched the last French fry out of a child's hand. Or a house cat with half a living bird inside its mouth and the other half still fluttering on the outside. Or a dog that found some long dead creature in the tall grass and is rolling it flat, twisting back and forth on it's back.
You get the idea. Pretty damn enjoyable!
Am I getting ahead of myself. While the cold light of editing make me squint and shield me eyes and bring tears to my eyes?
The other delightful thing about creating two separate books, would be making you wait impatiently for the second book to come out. Is that mean? Or just warped fun?
You be the judge.
Obviously, my writing is going very, very well and my life in the writing world is all roses.
Hope yours is too, whatever you are doing creatively.
Until next time.
