If you’re wondering where I’ve been lately, then please make something up. I guarantee whatever excuse I end up with in your imagination will be more interesting than the truth.
What I wanted to do today was talk about my newest project, which is actually an old project. I started writing a YA sci-fi book on this blog a while back and I stopped after a few chapters because I had no idea where I was going with it. But you’ll see that I have linked to it because for a first draft it wasn’t totally terrible. So you can check it out if you like.
The thing is, I still believe in that idea. Also I need a new project or I’m going to go insane. Since it had been so long since I’d written for this blog, I figured I’d get back into it. What I want to do is create a proper outline and character bible before I start rewriting, and I thought there would be no better way to brainstorm and get my ideas in order than to put the character bible here. I’ve decided to do a rundown of each of the main characters, one post at a time. Complete with concept art probably!
I was going to get started today, but then I thought that procrastinating would be more fun. So I drew a derpy dragon.
Is that his tongue sticking out the side of his mouth or is he smiling real big? The world may never know.
I will begin this character bible thing soon. Promise. This time we’re gonna do it the right way. And if the project still doesn’t work out? Oh well! As they say – Nothing ventured, nothing potato.
Oh, I also finished my Elemental Chinchilla series, for those who were on the edges of their seats. If you have no idea what I’m talking about, try clicking back through the past couple posts. I think that explains them sort of. Anyway here they are:
That’s all for today!
Wait I lied. I should probably give a brief plot summary for the new/old novel, huh? Well, it’s a YA Sci-Fi, as I said, and it follows two main characters on a planet that was once used as a prison but is now kind of its own tyrannical dictatorship society. It’s cut off from all the other planets in the galaxy – no communication, no ships in or out. Think Space Australia, if Australia were a tyrannical dictatorship that was cut off in every way from the outside world. So the main characters are trying to overthrow the mean government while dealing with personal issues and teenage angst and… yeah. That seems like a good summary.
Next time. Character bible. For sure.
Bye for real!
