So, I don't know if anyone reads these things, but its nice to post shit anyway. So for the last few months I've decided to get some ideas down in a notebook. I've always wanted to get a story down and out there, I thought I'd try the whole comic/graphic novel route, but that landed in a dead end. I was excited about the story at first but it lost direction and I felt I didn;t have enought ime to commit to the artwork and alas, I do not have a team of artists willing to work with me on it. However, as I started putting pen to paper on this new idea, it seemed to flow a lot more easily. Ideas seemed more natural and it was easy to form an idea of characters and how they would interact. I had an idea in what direction I wanted to go and found it easier to develop areas that could be expanded.
I've now filled a book with character ideas, backstories, history and lore. I feel I've been able to develop some interesting characters and have generally decided on a narrative. I just haven;t decided how to end it yet. I've come up with a world that the story is set in as well as draw a few ideas for maps of the lay of the land. I've started drafting it now so hopefully I can get something together over the coming months and I hope I can get some support from people.
If anyone has any tips for writing and eventually getting the thing out there for people to read that would be swell. I'll also be hoping to find people willing to proof read/edit for me.
