Good day, everyone. There is an inherent energy to the beginning of things. The start of a new adventure has its own power and magic to it. That long road trip, that first day of a new job, the first word written of a new story has a life all its own. The blank canvas of an empty page, though daunting, is an incredibly exciting sight. Everything is new, the vision of your world is before you to create and populate as you see fit.
It is the middle portion of any endeavor where that creative energy can wane. Those are the dog days of summer. They stretch on and the journey seems endless. They can be disconcerting if you do not have a plan in place to see you through them. However, something happens when you see the end of your journey before you. When the road nears its destination, there is a resurgence of fire, a renewed ignition of passion. In this blog, D.W. and I want to not only give tips on storytelling, writing and insights into the world of Necromancers’ Pride, but a look behind the velvet ropes into our journey of writing the saga, as well. We want you to know the path that we are on as we are on it, facing the trials, uncertainties and triumphs of crafting a story and publishing it for mass consumption.
I say all this to say that, for us, the dog days of summer working on book 3 of the Necromancers’ Pride Saga, Storm of Shadows, are behind us. We are now in the home stretch of the writing process. For us, the process is fed by a kinetic energy to create. We drive ourselves forward because creation fuels success. We see the light at the end of the tunnel and are charged and excited to complete book 3, Storm of Shadows. It will be done soon, but not if I keep writing this post. So, that having been said, we are off and back to work, creating a world of magic and imagination in which we can all enter and lose ourselves. We’ll keep you posted on how we are doing, but just know, Storm of Shadows is on schedule to be out soon!
What characters are you looking forward to seeing again in the next installment of the Necromancers’ Pride Saga?
