'Cause I have trouble with plots.


Dark Trail

Plot? I work on much more organic level.



As in, I can barely write. I don't think I've written a word of fiction for several months.



Plot plot plot. Plot. Climax! Plot.



Yeah, I got nothin'.



Okay, seriously now.



Let's start with a girl.



No, wait, a boy. Guy.



Has a brother, ahh, twenties? Maybe don't want to get too far away from my realm of experience, or too close to previous characters.



Okay, so there's a character. That isn't plot. I need to get him at least in a situation. Say he's on the lower social strata...and I just looked at my bookshelf and saw "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" so let's make him magical! I've never written magic before.



So that's not a plot, and might be too close to Rogue Agent Gerald Dunwoody. Maybe he stole it?



Call him Blake for now. Blake the anti-hero? Don't think I can make that work. Guess he's just a little confused with not-so-great friends who stole the magic and dumped it on him for safe keeping. Which will get him in trouble. Let's put him space! That's a bit much. Here we have a character and situation and impetus.



What happens next? Find out in November!
