As the past week unfolded I delved deep into the narrative of my newest writing project. I had an energy not felt since, at least a few years anyway. It felt good to change. To be truthful things were stuck on a loop before. It was becoming destructive and I no longer liked working on the Clark Thorn books.
Although this isn’t the last of that robot crime fighting world it is certainly on hold for now. That is at least until I know this next project will actually confirm itself. By that I mean being able to pull this off. From the start I couldn’t really see a means of ending (to this new book). But during an average day spent in deep thought the story has an ending pretty far off on the horizon. My books find their means.
To write you have to at least enjoy the craft. That was something I just fell short of with Clark Thorn, recently anyway. Before August I spent much time editing and putting that book ‘right’. After I just felt deflated, because I would have to send it out again, to be rejected again.
Not that I am giving up, things are just taking a more logical route now. Last week I talked about self-publishing this new project. Something I have no problem doing, my attachment to this job is to simply get one foot on the ladder of publishing city. Doing so there would be a professional edit and uploading to amazon. Maybe even a print on demand service. But that’s tomorrow, today I am drafting something completely new and if it works this could be the beginning of good things.
What is this book all about?
Soon my loyal followers you will be treated to a title and perhaps some kind of blurb. I’m keeping this story firmly under wraps. There won’t be a free sample just yet if not ever. The more you give away the less people discover.
But I will say this, my material came from something I wrote over ten years ago on about 5 sheets of lined A4. As I read the scrawled writing it came apparent that I was on to something. Hell there even included a drawing.
My style and approach to this title is to make the reader aware that the narrator knows of the genre and its cliche. Trying to turn the genre or genre busting is something I hope to achieve here because in this day an age originality is a hard thing to find. Delivering this story in that way is my spin on giving this title originality.
We have all been through a stage in our life we would rather forget. Sometimes the horrors of life are something we battle every day, but then again what if the horrors of life were something completely unexpected. It is on that premise my latest offering will be written.
