This past week I spent some time editing the first couple of chapters of my WIP and writing down the details in the updated bible so that I don’t forget things about the world as I go on with the series. Right now, I’m using a trick I’ve learned analyzing books in my genre. There’s a lot of setup in the first chapters but action as well. I try not to info-dump but there are some things you need to know about the world. I try to work it into what the characters are doing/saying.
My world is about a fanatical religion and how the places are torn apart by it. I’ve invented my own religion here, so there’s no bias toward any religion in existence. There are other religions to contrast it just as there are in today’s world.
Had a bit of a rough week so didn’t get as many posts done as I wanted to but that’s the way it is sometimes. You keep pushing on the best you can. This week looks to be another one so far. I did get to visit with my family this weekend with my nephew in town. It was a nice little gathering. It was nice to meet his friend. He’s from Washington state, a long way from Ohio but in the end, there was common ground.
Until next time, have a great week, take care, and God bless!
