Draft two is coming along nicely: I keep coming up with better ways to do scenes, except for the fact that it totally disrupts the order I had before, and I need to figure out how to make it work all over again *facepalm* Am I just making it harder for myself, just because I want something special?
Figured out some religious and mythological history about the area one of my characters was born in. It explains a lot about why things are the way they are, and why he turned out the way he did.
I saw a music vid today that totally captured a slice of this same character’s persona:
—-Edited in 2014: This isn’t the video I remember, but this is the song (and same long haired boys)—-
I love it when I see one of my characters looking back at me through a drawing, photograph, video, or even better: a living, breathing person. It’s like a piece of them exists in truth somewhere.
I’m getting to the point in the process where I just want to finish Book 1, but I am being so picky. I believe there is such a thing as being TOO picky, because then I’ll never finish it. I just want to get it to a point where I’m really proud. I guess I’m not proud enough yet.
