Okay two weeks in a row and no IF...what? Well As my time is being consumed with writing I tend to fail at other things. Like getting blogs up. I am blogging now, you say, why not just do the IF? Well my friends it is because I feel the need to share something new that is happening with my writing. Something that I am very excited about.
I need another project like I need an extra hole in my...well you get the picture. So what is this grand new project? Glad you asked. For a few years now I have had this story idea floating around in this jug I call a head. As someone who mostly reads and writes Fantasy, having this story was somewhat unique for me. Why? Because it is a Sci-Fi story.
I know, right? So why have I not tried to write it? Well I do enjoy reading Science Fiction. Still comparatively the amount of books I've read in the genre is quite small. While I enjoy the idea and characters I have come up with, I always feared some of the terms and tech might not come off as strong with me writing it. So on the back burner it sat.
Enter friend. So a life long buddy...like for real I have known him since I was eleven....gets to talking with me about my writing. He is also an aspiring author and guess what he loves to read? Exactly. So we just started brain storming and it has gone amazingly. The out put and story ideas are just flowing. So I get to add a new word to my writing life—collaboration.
I am still focused on Ashes, but when it is done. I plan on spending at least a portion of my time working together to get this book in shape. I can't wait to share more about it.
So has any of you ever collaborated for a novel or something else? How did it go?
Anyway hope you are all enjoying your weekend. As always have fun and keep writing.
