Just a little update on my progress with Ariadne.
As you hopefully know, I’m currently writing part 2 of Journey to Ariadne. This is coming along a bit slowly due to my daughter being sick and a few other things happening. I hope to have it finished this week.
Also, I’m going to begin the Ariadne Encyclopedia with information that is available from Journey to Ariadne. As I write new parts, I’ll add more information to the Encyclopedia. In addition to this, I’m going to try be a bit artistic. I’ll be drawing some pictures related to Ariadne. I’m not the best at drawing people, but I’m a lot better at scenery, buildings, and animals. I do well with still life, not with humans.
If you haven’t read part 1 yet, please go and read it! Comments are most welcome.
I’m happy to announce that the first part of Journey to Ariadne is now available for you to read!
Part 1: Standby can be read here. You can also go directly to the new Ariadne page, which will provide you with a lot of information about upcoming stories, as well as the Ariadne Encyclopedia under development. You can also go to the Journey to Ariadne page here. Please enjoy reading!
And while you’re at it, please follow both this blog, as well as my official author’s website for future updates.
431 words in the past hour. Not a large amount, but it is the opening.
I find that the opening of a story is one of the hardest things to write. How do I establish the scene? How do I introduce the characters? How do I create an atmosphere? It’s not easy.
I think as I get deeper into the story, the words will flow much more freely. I need to get into the zone and have no distractions, which isn’t always possible.
But it has started in a room somewhere on Mars with an American and an Italian. I hope to be finished the first installment of Journey to Ariadne this week and have it posted at my official website.
So my question to you is: What do you find to be the most difficult part of starting a new story? Please post your answer in the comments.
