Well now I’m at 32,000 words on Robin’s story. I have 2 chapters left so I guess everyone gets their wish for a novel. I’m really not use to counting words really. With scripts it’s pages. Each page being about 1 minute of screen time.
I usually don’t talk about the “how” I get this writing done and I find a lot of people don’t want to know. It spooks them out. They ought to be me for a day. Screen plays are methodical. Novels are organic. I’m really hooked. It’s a lot harder to write prose but it takes you to such fun places it is well worth the ride.
Research for this book:
The Soul After Death by Fr. Seraphim Rose
Solomonic Archangels and Demon Prince by Stephen Skinner & David Rankine
Grimoires by Owen Davies
The Kabbalah Peach Hagaddah by The Rv Berg Sheltie
The Holy Bible by God
Magik of the Ancient Gods by Ford
Biblical Fragments from Mt. Sinai by J. Rendel Harris.
And many more. I will list all books, websites etc when I get finished up. It’s so funny, people think you just sit down and make things up but beyond these books I’ve used all kinds of maps and references for local areas. It never seems to end.
Personally I find this part to be really fun. I’m curious and love to learn.
I ask for a bit more indulgence. Those who have offered to read the initial draft, it is very close. I do know how this part ends but there is a lot of pieces I forgot along the way and I keep plugging then in.
I could still use a few more readers. You will get a rough copy of the bock bound, signed and numbered by me. Read it and MARK IT UP. No grammar or spelling corrections just content. Once I have all remarks coded I will return to you for your enjoyment.
Being a filmmaker I love being trashed so I can think more clearly. No ego here.
Then a first official revision will be made and used with a book proposal so I can find a publisher. I’d love to do a special edition through someone like http://www.subterraneanpress.com/ if possible then located a larger publisher for a wider distribution.
Any help (advice) would be great. Have a great Labor Day.
