Yes, indeed it does! But everything “thickens” if it first comes into existence, I suppose. I’ve been working on getting the plot for the book’s narrative poem ready today and both the general plot has been finished! For once I’ve been able to actually keep things concise, just jotting down the main points of the story while simultaneously getting the entirety of the plot described. Look at me, actually summarizing! ^_^
In addition, the various parts, which are likely going to be the chapters, have been set up and their individual plots are in the making. Getting the latter finished and connected will be the next step in the pre-writing phase.
I won’t be revealing anything concerning the actual story contents yet. What I will tell is that, although this is a poem and a fictional narrative, I will, at least for some parts of it, be drawing from my own experience. It’s as ye olde saying goes, after all: we write what we know. That is what I’ll be doing here. How exactly? Stay tuned to find out! ^_~
We’re still very much in the initial phases of this project, but we’re definitely getting somewhere. I have a good feeling about this! ^_^
