It's an interesting process. I'm enjoying it. I'm making a very simple adventure novel. I know all of the side characters more than I know the main characters and I'm trying to figure out whether or not that's horrible or interesting. I'm leaning towards awful. I will forever be grateful to Baty for having a month in which to turn off my annoying brain while I write. Here's a taste of something I'd otherwise be horribly self conscious about:
My head was just over the rail and I swear to you, boy, I saw a tentacle breech the surface and something hungry just below, just waiting for my body to pass the froth and the waves and I knew the last thing I'd see was my reflection; white as a ghost and hopefully twice as dead before I met whatever was there wating. But then, boom.
Whatever it winds up being, it's been very enjoyable and I should be able to generate something nice out of it. I figure I'll be relatively done with it by January. I will eventually share it with you, the void.
Kudos to me.
