Hi, just a quick note to let everyone know what I’ve been doing the last two days. I have been making a background book for a novel. Yes having started to write a mere 6 months ago I think I can write a novel.
I was writing a book on autism but it is upsetting Alex so I wanted something to share at writer’s circle. I was thinking of writing a sci fi novel after the autism book so I’ve decided to gather all my ideas and start them together.
I wrote a couple of chapters I’m not happy with and got some great feedback about how to proceed. I’ve mapped my planet & my country, separate maps for basic features like rivers & mountains, climate & names.
I have created basic avatars for the 18 main characters plus names, animal totems & symbolic colour (not for the book but to remind me what their personalities are). And I’ve roughly point-formed the story of the book. Plus government structure and a couple of special thingamagigs.
I have a page with all the main characters for the quick view and printed pieces I’ve affixed to pages ready for individual character notes. So just a little more to do and I’ll have my planning book finished.
I’ve also done an okay sketch of my hero, so have an idea to the basic species appearance. I think I may be insane; but my stress level is so high I doubt I could have done anything more productive.
Tomorrow I have to prep for Tasha’s birthday and Friday I have National Disability review prep and then Tasha’s boyfriend is coming for a small birthday party. I may never read anybody else’s blog again.
