So as you know from my previous post, I have a story I was thinking of writing for NaNoWriMo. It’s not a particularly happy story, especially at the beginning. As I look into the nebulous unwritten future of the story, I’m not sure how happy it might even turn out. My dear wife has informed me I shouldn’t write dark stories because to write it well, I have to go there. I know some writers can write the stuff without becoming immersed in it. I’m not one of those. So her fear is justified. That being said, I’m changing my NaNoWriMo story to one I wrote in high school, re-wrote several years later and am finally re-writing again because, well, it is what it was meant to be, a fairy tale of sorts and it is told like one.
For a select few who know of the Mysterious Prince, that is the story I’m re-writing. I’ve already started and pretty much know how the story will go (at least right now) so an outline already exists. This will save me considerable time. Meanwhile, somehow I need to find a happy place for the Phoenix cyle. Or I need to find a happy place to switch to on a regular basis while working on it. Because the story and the world are ready and waiting. I even found my map. For now, it will continue to rest and November should bring about mostly the finishing of the Mysterious Prince.
This is the Novel Mage saying, *POOF*
