Project in the making

The greatest sin a writer can make is talking about what they are working on, for announcing it means that the universe will do whatever it can to not make it happen, at least that’s my experience.

It’s even more important to not talk about your projects when they are in the drafting stage as that’s when the project is the most vulnerable. Even so, I’m inclined to tell you I’m working on “something” and the goal is that the first draft will be finished before new years, which is why I haven’t posted much these couple of weeks.

Hope you’re all having a splendid December and hopefully I’ll have something more to post before Decembers end.

 

 

Author’s Bio… I Got Nothing.

What do you write in a bio when you have no accomplishments? 

Christopher is a fiction novelist who writes in the fantasy, sci-fi and horror genre.

Like anyone who tries to better themselves, you often create expectations that you can never live up to. But one of these days, the author has to overcome these feelings of inadequacy and publish one of his many unfinished stories.

The short story/novelette/novel “Colony Sane” will be his moment of truth, for the iterations of his story has been many. Once a short story, now a novelette, and (maybe) in the future, a novel. Reworked and edited until the original idea almost bare no resemblance to the new.

When this story is done, work on the “Book of Legacy” series will resume and the great magnum opus of the author will be presented to the world.

If you want to know more, the Book of Legacy series is heavily inspired by Lord of the Rings Trilogy in terms of a group of people journeying through the land to end all evil. But instead of sticking to this fantasy trope, the main character has to question if the world is in danger at all. In doing so, he has to question the purpose of his journey and ask why he braves the world’s many dangers and risks the lives of his friends, if not, for no other reason, than to satisfy his own curiosity.
