All systems are go. I understand how to tell the story I want to tell. After about two years of development, thinking and not nearly enough reading, my storytelling ability is at last where it needs to be to fulfill my vision. I’m going to finish this two novel, one story, project.
Now, there are plenty of things that might go wrong at this point. A TrumpBarr court coup. A civil war. A revolution. A war with the DPRK or Iran. The list goes on. But I get it now. I understand how to tell this rather convoluted story in a very intuitive, organic fashion.
I still have a huge amount of reading to do. Most of that reading is needed to flesh out the characters some. Many of my characters are still either placeholders or just “feelings” and “ideas” rather than real people.
But I’m getting there.
