Tweet After 22 months of off and on work, the first draft of the new book is done. 276 pages plus 5 pages of glossary. The Journey of Why Synopsis: For generations, the Product has been dug out of the ground, packed up and placed in Storage Wagons, to be carried away by the Locomotor.
I know I haven’t written much here lately but it doesn’t mean I haven’t been writing. In the new notebook I have over 75 pages done and the story is progressing quite well. I get the sense this will be my best story ever. It contains multiple levels of conflict and meaning. There might even be allegory and parable like qualities to the story.
Early on in the story idea phase (which lasted all of 20 minute I think), I had an idea to structure the book sort of like Dante’s Inferno, but in reverse. I had some crazy ideas about the world in which Myranda lives and the story takes place and that got me to start thinking about a lot of parallels and themes running through the book and the story.
