The story came from, in it barest parts, the previous blog, the one right down there, sitting beneath this one. My brain was giving me some fun conversation time with Loki, cause hey, what's daydreaming for anyway, right? And I was also trying to figure out another story I've been wanting to tell for years and all of this kind of mashed up together and a new character walked out of it. The man is called the Raven Lord and while his starting point may have been Loki, he quickly became his own person in his own amazing, and at times almost tragic, world. He opened the doors and this story poured out. And now I am just trying to keep up.
The character doesn't know any of this, of course. He's busy going about his day, and I'm really just following along, writing down what he does. Hmm...that sounds kind of creepy.
There's a woman in the story, she started out kind of like me, but then I found out she really isn't that much like me. I kind of envy her, a little, but then she hasn't had to make the hard choices yet. I'll reevaluate my fondness when, for her, the poop hits the spinning turbine.
There's a bad guy too, and a mad one and they're the same thing, sometimes.
I can't stay here too much longer. The story is calling me back. If I'm not at work, this is where I will be. The idea started around last Wednesday or Thursday, I'm not exactly sure when, but since then I've written 12,000 words of it, 6 chapters and there are many more to write. I don't know how long it will be though, just long enough to tell all of the story I guess. I'll stop writing when it is the proper time to, when the characters have accomplished what is needed.
I've posted the first chapter in my Novel section of this website just to give a taste.
It is such a joy to dance with these characters.
Ah, I think I hear the music starting, I must away.
