Lore du Jour ~ The future is unwritten

A serial writer’s notebook ~ from the pen behind Lore of the Underlings, an episodic epic…

Time and again I’ve heard writers say that they’d rather have written than be writing. But in my case I must disagree.

For me the writing is the thing. The written is the icing.

Perhaps it’s how I’m approaching the Lore, as much adventure as can be. I just can’t wait each day to see what novel tale I’ll be drawn into.

I do have plans, some signposts ahead to guide the course of the story. But I love to let the Lore folk go and invent all the in-between for me.

Oh, they’re more than happy to oblige, which makes for an unpredictable ride. In return I give them ammunition, planted things to use down the road — a grudge against someone, a pocketed stone, a prophecy overheard foretold.

And so each day the Lore unfolds. Its pages, the future, unwritten…
