When last I posted, I mentioned the idea of writing a novel on this site, and publishing it, as I go. I’ve actually been working on this, believe it or not. I’ve been toying around with the opening chapters for Daughter of Fate, and things are going pretty well.
The rough part, so far, is knowing that as I publish chapters they will be set in stone – good, bad, or indifferent. I’ve had to think long and hard, not just about the overall plot, but also all the little sub plots that will eventually make up the story. If I were to decide, say, in Chapter 30 that a character named Jimbob was required and that he needed to be introduced earlier on in the story, but wasn’t, well … that just sucks!
So, I’ve been spending a lot of time futzing with the intricacies of the plot as I work. It’s actually consuming a heck of a lot of time! And it’s pretty freaking nerve-wracking too.
But, the good news is that the first four chapters are getting wrapped up. I’m hoping to have them available soon … maybe. No … definitely soon!
Either I have to do what I said I’d do, or I’d be a horrible person. So, the plan is to make the first four chapters available sometime in the coming month. It may be next week, it may be on April 30th … I don’t really know.
But they are coming! Promise!
