A serial writer’s notebook ~ from the pen behind Lore of the Underlings, an unfolding epic…
Hello friends, romantics, and fantasy-fiction aficionados!
This week I started writing the first chapter of my first young-adult (YA) Lore novel. It’s a lot of fun.
I’ve been brewing this saga in my head for about seven years, so it almost feels like I’m just reporting on something that really happened. And writing on the Ernest end of the Hemingway spectrum is breezily easy.
Speaking of easy, I knew what the opening paragraph was going to be all along. Something that sums up this Lore story’s start as well as the essence of most great quests:
It all began with a bad idea. A really bad idea.
I guess it’s all downhill from here!
More to come…
