    • Clark Farley that! is the wrestling match I face every time I set into the .... er, keyboard-shaped ring?...nah... the monitor of death?.... the squared circle of electrons?!! lol... the business of backstory versus forward moving narrative. All the books and experts be sayin, 'ever thang must advance the story' but I still need to portray the environment the setting, right? Guess I'm stuck with these semi-asides because it's necessary at least as to how I (am currently) able to write it out. Thanks for the comment, the business of writing is, for me as much (at times more) fun as the story itself.

    • Andre Clemons I totally understand that whole "big picture/drawing the camera back" routine. When writing a story, I tend to think cinematically, figuring out the big moments and small moments, crafting the dialogue and really letting the world of the narrative breathe. Lake Luna is such an interesting character in itself and surprises me the more I write about it.

    • Clark Farley and *that*, "...surprises me the more I write about it." is surely the coolest thing about this writing thing, to have a place (or people) reveal things about themselves that is a total surprise, despite the fact that we created them! The 'I didn't know that' effect. Equally fun is when relationships reveal themselves between characters that I had not anticipated when I started the character on their way through life. way, way more fun than watching TV

    • Clark Farley Hey Andre, very telling comment, thank you. For me, the comments are as much about the craft as the story... I am trying to build increasing connection among the plot lines, even as I type out each chapter! lol no, seriously! It’s not a secret that my approach to writing these involves extreme seat of pants... as in, I actually do not know the plot any further than the current chapter (maybe one out from the current chapter)... this poses interesting challenges to me (as writer) and the book (as a story). I will be releasing Chapters 11 & 12 today which will get the main characters into motion. (Interesting problem: how many are too many strong, i.e. characters in one story? What about subplots? How many does it take to confuse a reader, rather than intrigue? I re-read a lot of Robert Parker’s Spenser stories and it seems that the plot is very much a single thread running from start to finish. I like Robert Parker. But then again, when I discover an interesting character, its almost unavoidable that there be a subplot. Like Sister Catherine growing up in an orphanage. I mean, I gotta include that…right? Lol Probably is somewhere in between. I don’t want to write a single character story, but I also have to exercise some restraint in subplots…. Thanks for the additional perspective.
