Things are looking up! Whereas last week so hardly any progress, now I’m actually getting somewhere. Although not that much more has been written when it comes to story preparation, I’m almost getting to the point I’m feeling confident to start writing. Simply starting to write with a general direction in my head is the method that got a lot of work done all those years ago, so with much more detailed directions, that sound like a plan that could work, doesn’t it? Therefore, instead sitting in front of my screen for ages, trying to puzzle the plot together and only to have very little to show for it, I’ll actually go and write! I know where I want to take the story and have a fair bit of the road towards that has already been paved, especially the early parts. Preparations for further down to the line in the plot can be done along the way. So for the upcoming week, the plan is very simple: start writing. Start writing now!
Aside from main Frontline story this will also include a short interlude story that takes place before Frontline. Its focus will be several new important characters that are going to make their appearance. Some will be playing a larger role than others in the story ahead, but I figured they could all use at least a short introduction, for the sake of a more fleshed out and coherent story. Plus, I really enjoy delving deeper into the universe and its characters, even the less prominent ones, so it’s definitely a win-win situation!
The weekly profiles are also coming along nicely. They’re still mostly the basic profiles like the ones you’ve seen in the past two weeks, so still fairly short. Those basic profiles are the groundwork that needs to be laid before the more extensive databank can follow, however. Have no fear: they will be expanded upon once that groundwork is there. In any case, there will be no shortage of content for the upcoming Mondays! I’ll be seeing you again next week with hopefully more (read: true progress) and good news. For now, as always:
May the Force be with you!
