It is that time of year again when, possibly mad, writers embark on a 50,000 word start to a novel. I will be partaking once again. I don’t have a title for my project but I do have a basic premise.
The story concerts two planets. One of magic and one of technology. There are some areas where magic has the advantage and some areas where technology has the advantage. The primary focus of the story is that Fauns steal a warship – its powerful weapons can do far more than the limited magic of the fauns.
I am trying to do some planning for the novel but, in truth, I find it hard to plan and would rather just make a start – in ten days I will.
The other question in my mind is do I just use our world as the technological world or invent my own? I will probably decided that as I go along too. The advantage is that if I build it from the ground up then no one can say I am wrong. The disadvantage is I have to invent everything and there are still things I would like to know that are not easily googled.
I just wanted to say that I have checked this post. I really have. Unfortunately my particular combination of dyslexia and dyspraxia makes it really hard for me to spot typos. Please enjoy and I’ll try not to make too many errors.
