This month, I am tackling the problem of world building for an entire series. Namely, the Defcon series that I’ve been working on for the past bit (ok, ok, on and off since 2007).
I’m facing a fear — or at least an insecurity — by making myself work on creating characters and a world that will be comprehensible and hopefully enjoyable to other people. This is a big and ambitious project, in part because I’m creating characters who are nothing like myself and who live in a world that I literally can only imagine. But, I’m going for it because I’ve worked this hard and I’m not stopping now!
(Well, ok, technically I have yet to get started since I got sick on Sunday night and have spent the last couple days recuperating and trying to sleep off the sick but I’m still mulling things over so that counts, right?)
