Things I’ve learned so far in writing this story:
- In order to make an incredible story credible, it helps to tell it from a credulous perspective.
- Actions, not words! I spend way too much time inside character’s heads and not enough time describing their actions, which is where the story lies.
- Perhaps I’m only meant to be a memoir-writer, not a story-writer. Too bad! I’m going to *attempt* to finish the story anyway.
- Lots and lots of adverbs! You can only use “exclaimed” so many times.
- Fantasy and sci-fi are very similar genres: separate worlds touch.
- If you try to logically explain all of the strange happenings in a fantasy world, it ceases to be a fantasy world.
Katharine definitely saw somebody get badly hurt under her supervision or something and has been blaming herself for it ever since. That’s her secret; it just is. Ha!
