So it begins.
My apologies for not having been around lately. There’s been stuff going on and I’ve been kinda busy.
The post immediately preceding this one is the first “chapter” of a new project I’m working on. It’s a kind of experimental online novel. I’m not sure yet what genre it is, but I’ve always had a soft spot for SF and fantasy, so it’s going to have aspects of those.
The idea is that each chapter of the story is a post in a blog belonging to the user who’s name appears in brackets at the top of the post. Theoretically this could have been achieved by making multiple blogs, but I’m neither smart nor organised enough to do that, and anyway I’d be worried that this would end up turning into an ARG, which isn’t what I’m aiming for.
The early chapters will be very short – think of them like a prologue – but they will get longer once the main story kicks off. I would love it if people would give me feedback on the story, which is why each chapter will have a “rant page”, where you can leave criticisms, suggestions etc., which I will welcome. I don’t mind harsh comments if they’re constructive! As the story progresses, some chapters will allow you to comment directly on the posts themselves, if you wish. These comments will be treated as “in character”, and may influence the narrative directly.
So yeah. I’m not sure how long this will be or how frequently it will be updated; that will depend at least in part on whether anyone’s interested.
I hope you like it!
