The Never Ending Story

Movie, weird and not so good.  However, one of the things that some of the panelists at LTUE have said is that when you finish one book, just keep going.  Don’t wait for it to be accepted or published before starting your next one.  Now, I fully recognize that some people might try and draw parallels between The Oak Wand – Trials and Fire and some other wildly popular book about a boy wizard and his friends.  But they would be wrong and I can point out all of the ways.  One of which is that my main character is not being hunted by one super evil person and his little band of pathetic followers.  He is being hunted by a massive organization.  It is not one person pulling the strings and using fear and power to manipulate the underlings but a collective belief system that is flawed.

This has brought up the unenviable question that my wife posed, “So how does it all get resolved?”  Uh.  Um.  Yep, I wrote a great book that definitely can be a series and all I knew was how that first one would end.  So now, as I’m trying to answer that question, I realized WHY having a single villain is a good idea.  When the bad guy dies, you have an end.  *sigh*  Until I figure out how it will all end, I feel like I’ve started on the never ending story.

This is the Novel Mage saying, *POOF*
