Things are actually moving, it appears, though I can’t shake the feeling that the current situation is looking an awful lot like that of last year. Am I right in feeling like that? Well, yes and no.
Some parts of the preparation are done, but there still is a lot of tinkering to do.
And – and here is where it’s most like last year – said tinkering will be very much last-minute work. Of course the story’s setting/world has been introduced and is as set as it can be, with the nature of the world being as strange and chaotic as it is and I have a fairly good view of the main cast and part of the supporting cast, both of which will be discussed in the upcoming days, which are the last three days of this month. So, yes, very last-minute, but do I tend to do well under pressure.
Unlike last year, though, the plot outline is taking a clear shape in advance of the writing. As of right now, the first act, introducing the characters and setting the stage, is as good as done and I have a good feeling that, barring any unforeseen complications, the rest will be (at least almost) finished before November begins. The one thing I have to watch out for most of all is getting too many ideas forming in my head – it’s kind of a luxury, I know ^^; – and getting lost in it all, but as of now it’s… No, I won’t say smooth sailing, because I’m semi-superstitious like that… Instead I’ll just go and paraphrase the second most used Star Wars quote of all time!
And for now, we rest, for tomorrow we shall continue to tinker our way towards the awesomeness that lies in November! Just a few days now! Almost there! And then… No, that’s a Star Wars quote I’ll be leaving for a bit later … >:) See you next time, everyone! ^_^
