My Current Project

It’s a novel, the first of a trilogy. I’ve been working on it for about three years now, and so far have only gotten the first draft done. That and endless months of plotting. I think the reason it’s taking so long is because although I’m writing one book, I’m plotting three. Everything has to flow and connect. It needs time to take shape, and I have no intentions of rushing it.

I would tell you what it’s about, but the plot keeps changing. Every time I think I have it all charted out, I slip into another plot hole. I try to patch those up as they come along – and they come often, sometimes uprooting the whole foundation of the story. At times I wish I could just overlook them, but I don’t think I have it in me. If, in the end, there any gaps, I want to be oblivious to them. As long as I can’t see them, I can move on. But if I spot them, I have to pull the reigns.

What I know for sure, though, is that it’s about a boy, a woman, and a tree – a big tree. The boy has a good heart and the woman good eyes. The tree is sick, so they have to try to heal it. I don’t know if they succeed yet, but I’m off to find out.

See you soon.

Changes

Despite being on here for a few years now, I’ve never actually spoken directly to the 36 people who follow this site, so I guess I should start off by saying ‘hi’. Thank you for reading my stuff and making me feel a little less alone.

I’m here to let you know that the site is going to undergo some changes. I’m currently writing a novel (I’ve been writing a novel) and have decided that I want to use this space to document my process, what I learn along the way, and general writing-related things. I’m not sure if I’m going to continue posting poetry here, as I feel I don’t want to mix the two things. But we’ll find a home for them.

Anyways, I hope you stick around, yeah? See you soon.
