A Sand Flea Breakthrough

esAfter writing the second draft of the Sand Flea for my first National Novel Writing Month, I’ve been stuck.  I tried to rewrite this problem story in Camp NaNoWriMo, but it wasn’t to be, and I failed utterly, despite being psyched up for the challenge.

However, after Two years, I feel I am ready to look at it with fresh eyes, and I realize something.  Ask is the protagonist, but that doesn’t mean the story has to be told through his eyes.  The POV character came shortly after, in the form of Korenila.  This will allow the reader to watch Ask’s outward changes that he wouldn’t notice, give insight into the priestess and her bodyguard Evoxe, and perhaps see more of the world in which they all live.

It should also follow a more solid timeline that the reader can track, and will eliminate the boring points when Ask is bedridden and nothing is happening from his perspective.

This is still his story.  The voice telling it is simply someone else.

New Projects and Renewed Creativity

Gosh, it’s been a while!  Here’s my highly irregular notification of life.  I haven’t been too lazy during my time away from here, at least.  I’ve done more work on Saldecla’s wiki, started work on a new setting wiki for a place called Empire Lands, started compiling my most loved characters to Charahub, and I even started laying out some outlines for a few book ideas I’ve gotten.

I’ve set my previous NaNoWriMo novel on the back burner– I want to rewrite it because it’s lacking punch.  The Sand Flea is also on the back burner for the same reason.  I have another four stories that need told, maybe five, if I’m feeling the creativity flow like crazy.

The first is about a magic user who faces prejudice and tries to fix it, but ultimately fails and sells his soul to at least complete his research– that’s part one.  Part two of the same story is about a boy who faces similar prejudice, and instead of fighting against it, he simply does what he can to survive using his natural gifts for technology.

Second, I have a story about K.  K is an androgynous, asexual, agender human who is on his way to hell to discover why he is one of the only people in the world who is incapable of using humanity’s innate magic.

My third story involves the story of a world, starting with what sets it apart from the real world (an apocalypse), and ending with its current stagnation.

Another story idea is a sort of prequel to the second part of the first new novel idea– it will tell why the prejudice exists, and also provide a partial prologue to the third story.
