I wrote 1600 words tonight, the start of a new idea. I’m realizing as I write that what I thought sprung fully formed from my head has some significant holes in it, and like many of my ideas, they’re at the beginning. Still, right now it’s about the characters, so I’m going to continue the way I’m doing now, and let them build out a bit. I enjoyed writing this, though I’m sure it leaves some confusing questions in the head of an average reader. I’ve considered that, and will be writing more in the coming weeks. If my first goal is to install a bit more background for the sake of the reader, that’s definitely something worth writing. If it comes out too hamfisted to be useful or entertaining, well that’s for the editing stage. Let’s see what I can do with this.
