So, it has obviously been a long time coming, but the story is now starting to happen. Some 4,000 words in I have some bad guys about to start chasing my heroes across the Home Counties, and the good guys are about to be given an utterly ridiculous quest upon which to embark whilst evading said bad guys.
That is just the good stuff, of course; there’s a lot of rubbish lurking in the draft so far, most of which has nothing to do with the Ambivalence Chronicles, but it’s keeping me writing, and that has got me to this point, the point of almost having a story, so it can’t be all bad.
Well, ok, this is Camp NaNoWriMo, so it pretty much is all bad.
I don’t think I’ve written a line I feel like sharing yet, which I suppose goes to show just how bad it all is, but at least there are words getting committed to a Scrivener file, and a plan is developing.
Of course, what I really have no idea about at this stage is how any of this is going to fit in with the wider arc of the Ambivalence Chronicles; I think what this indicates is that we shouldn’t expect a public release of any of the Chronicles until such time as there is a sort of coherent link across the whole series.
And no, I still don’t know what this story is actually called.
