So, this is my first entry! I’ve been writing a novel for the last month and a half, and I’m really excited about it. Writing fiction is fairly new to me, and it’s been the greatest experience of my life in quite awhile. I dove into the imagination, along with research, and produced something I’m really proud of. Creating worlds is something I learned about in school, and it was absolutely wonderful to really develop the world that the story takes place in. I may develop it into a longer story, but for now, it’s with my editor, and we’re working on it.
Gaia II, a story I worked on in my thesis year at CCA may be the next project I tackle, and there is a lot of research I need to do about the world I’m developing for that work. Tolkein took 12 years to write Lord of the Rings, his follow up to the Hobbit, and I may use that timeline as my guide for this one. I have maps to make, deep history, and as the pandemic and ecological crisis is continuing, it may be one of the best ways for me to understand our world more.
So that’s my first post! Welcome to my journey!
