Just finished chapter 1 of The Accidental Hero. So far I’m happy with how it’s coming along, but it is only the first chapter, and I still have a lot of things to work out along the way. The Unseen Things series was like a comfortable old shoe I could just delve into and start writing whatever I felt like writing. Writing standalone novels is like writing the first book of a series. You have to world build completely from scratch, and the way I write, that all just evolves organically. Virtually nothing is pre-planned, and the stuff that is, is all subject to change at the drop of a hat so it fits into the story the way it’s evolving. The ideas I was working with when I started the Unseen Things series changed drastically as I wrote the first book. They were replaced by better ideas, and that’s why I don’t pre-plan my works. I allow them to evolve in whatever ways they feel like they should as I’m writing.
Speaking of writing, my hands aren’t a hundred percent yet by any means, but at least I can type now without constant typos, so that’s good at least.
Anyway, that’s it for now. Catch ya on the flip side. 😉
