This week we’ll chat about a Prodigal Son, my return to World of Warcraft, a new podcast, and a social media release. Plus we'll talk about writing Fantasy and the course I'm taking
I started a Fantasy Novel writing course - I’ve been working on the first book in what I thought would be a light-hearted fantasy series - well, now I have been developing the world in-depth. I’m not sure I’ll get to the epic fantasy state, but I feel so much better about my process.
I think that is part of trick with many things, is figuring out your process. I tried pantster - I tried Plotter - I tried Planster - and what I have figured out now is I’m a world builder, and now I have some tools to help me do that. After I build the world, I just have to plop the characters into the world that I now have envisioned. I’m looking forward to finishing the world build - but I’m losing a lot of sleep doing it.

Nanowrimo is about to start, and I’m going to give it ago one more time - though this time, I’m not sure I will have the story ready in time. We’ll see, but I’m going to commit to working on getting words either on the page or in my world-building site.
I'm appear at the North West Georgia Writers Conference this weekend and I've been accepted as an Attending Pro at Dragon Con 2020.
