Just About 108,000 Words Later, Space for Meaty Ideas
I first wrote the story of Star Fool and Silver Wing for National Novel Writing Month (nanowrimo.org) in 2012. It took a lot of editing.
It’s been fun and frustrating at the same time. I’ve learned a lot about creative writing styles, and decided that I’m going to write the way I want to write at least some of the time. I LIKE old books and I like reading what the action was rather than having to read a description of a situation and figure out what it looks like. Most description of action is hard for me to see in my mind anyway. I have a cognitive dis-function in that area. That’s why I’d rather read than see a movie. I miss stuff in movies. My story doesn’t have much of that type of physical action. It’s more an exploration of ideas.
Hope you enjoy!
