First Post of 2015

I have just seen Tom Percival's rough version of what the paperback cover for The Dying of the Light ... and all I can say is WOW.

This cover needs to be a poster. You'll be seeing it yourself in a matters of weeks, and then you can join me in demanding more posters. MORE!

Before the paperback of TDOTL comes out, of course, there'll be the paperback edition of Armageddon Outta Here. We'll be using a slightly altered version of the hardback cover for this because I didn't want anyone out there picking it up thinking it's one of the main books — I want it to be as obvious as possible that it's a collection of stories. There ARE going to be three new stories in it, though, about which I'll go into more detail closer to publication.

The Skulduggery series is, of course, now over, and I'm working on this mysterious new trilogy of mine. I had a third of it written by the time TDOTL was released, and then I went on a tour that took me to the other side of the world, and writing stopped.

When I got back, I had to write those three new short stories for AOH — so writing of the new series was postponed.

Then I needed a break. I just needed one or two weeks to just stop working and relax. So no writing got done.

Then it was December, and I sat down to write the remaining two thirds of the book. And I sat. And I sat. And nothing was happening. My absolute deadline for getting the first book finished was the end of January, and I had a LOT to do. But nothing was happening.

The writing had stalled.

This, as you can imagine, was not good. This was ever-so-slightly worrying. It had happened before, of course. It had happened with The Faceless Ones and again with Kingdom of the Wicked. Writer's block? Maybe. If such a thing exists, then I probably had it.

December carried on. I spoke to my agent and my editor just before the Christmas break, because the title I had been planning on using (or something similar) had been used by someone else a year earlier. We'd been having discussions about what it was going to be called now. None of my ideas were hitting in the way I needed.

But then, right before the Christmas break, the title came to me. No, I'm not going to tell you what it is — not yet. But it came to me and my eyes widened, and I sent off an email. A short email. Two words long. My title. My agent and my editor got back to me immediately — perfect.

We got on the phone, discussed it, said merry Christmas, and hung up.

Happy once again, I sat down at my desk and began to WRITE.


Except I didn't.

The book was still stalled.

The day before Christmas Eve I was sitting at my computer, staring at the screen. I remembered how I had been blocked when writing The Faceless Ones and Kingdom of the Wicked. When I was writing TFO, I was in the process of buying a house and I was about to move in. Something like this is incredibly distracting, and probably accounted for my inability to write. I broke through that block one day (on New Year's Eve, 2008) simply because enough time had passed. I didn't question it, I just wrote. When I was writing KOTW, I got halfway through and things slowed down.  I wasn't blocked, exactly, but I wasn't inspired. There was something missing. I looked at the title — Kingdom of the Wicked — and I asked myself what does this title say to me?

For some reason, it said 'alternate dimension'.

That's what was missing. Immediately I was writing about shunting and Mevolent and a world ruled by sorcerers, and slotting all that into what I'd already written about Argeddion and Kitana.

So, two days before Christmas, I looked at this title I'd just come up with, and I asked myself what does this title say to me?

And it told me. And suddenly everything changed.

The core idea is still the same — it's still about a 16 year old girl who is being chased across America by demons — but it has grown. It has expanded. It has evolved.

So I scrapped what I'd written. I managed to salvage maybe half of it, but that meant I was now even worse off than I had been. The thing is, though, I was now inspired. This was FUN again.

My deadline is still the end of this month. In the last week, I have written enough to that I have once again got a third of it written. I calculate that I will need to write twice as much as I usually do per day to get it done in time. Yesterday was my first attempt to do this. I wrote EXACTLY twice as much as I usually do. Yesterday was a good day. Today is going to be a good day too.

It has to be.

Jesa - You have to leave. You need to go and find somewhere safe. We all got blown up. Someone blew up the house and wants these people dead. I don't want you being caught up in it.
*Looks away from her*

Chione - *Helps her brother up*
*Goes over to Sebastian and Cordelia who're hugging each other, glad to be alive*
We should all leave.
*Looks around at the destroyed house*
None of us are safe here.
S - *Helps Cordelia up*
Yeah, you're right.
C - Where do we go...?
S - Underground base? there is enough room down there for everyone here...

Chione: *Thinks about it and looks at the twins*
Cordelia, can you look after the twins for me?
C - What? why? aren't you coming with us?
Chione: No, there is something I have to do.
*Kneels down to the twins*
You need to go with Cordelia and uncle Tsubaki, alright?
*The twins nod*

Tsu: Sis, no...I can't leave you. That person blew up YOUR house. What if they're after you?
Chi: I'm a goddess, you're a god. I'll be fine, brother.

Chione Soul said...

(Chi is now back at the infected lake btw

Hi Trip *Hugs him tightly*)

Chi: *Looks at Blake* How are you alive...? You...were buried..

Erebus (In Blake Soul's body) said...

(Raises*)

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

MrBBWolf: *nods*
I..think I saw a camp stove..

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief In The Land said...

Oh, that's clever Erebus.

So basically guys, Erubus stole control of Blake's body. He's now presumably going to turn you one by one to his side by removing your free will like he did to Tanya.

Oh yeah, don't trust her either, she's under his command.

Erebus (In Blake Soul's body) said...

Come on, you know a few feet of dirt couldn't hold me.

Inky Flame the invisible ninja, Felix Corruption, Tawnee, Cole, Alys (The other half of the new ship Garky) (Chloe G) said...

COle: okay...ill get blankets... wait! Anna is out!

Mr Smith, Mr Mercy said...

(Hi?)

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

MrBBWolf: *frowns*
She is?

Chione Soul said...

Jesa - No! Annabelle you need to get out of here! *grabs her arm* you have kids to look after. Why the hell are you even here?
*Looks her right in the eyes*

*The rest of the group climbs through the rubble*
*Tsubaki is holding lucas, Cordelia is holding Lira*
S - Follow me.
Tsu - Jesabelle, you coming?

Jesa - Tsubaki just...give me a few minutes, i'll follow your trail.
*Sighs and looks down at the floor*
Why are you doing this?

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

(hey Jack)

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief In The Land said...

(*hugs*)

Mr Smith, Mr Mercy said...

(Hello Jai, how are you?)

Inky Flame the invisible ninja, Felix Corruption, Tawnee, Cole, Alys (The other half of the new ship Garky) (Chloe G) said...

COle: *frowns* she is...I must get her..l.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Hello.)

Mr Smith, Mr Mercy said...

(Hello Soph)

Chione Soul said...

(Hey Mr Smith, or is ok if I call you jack...I'm assuming that's your real name?)

Chi: *Looks between Trip and Blake* What's going on...?

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

Annabelle: I...I heard there'd been an explosion...and then Chi said...that..that you were all dead..

Chione Soul said...

(Hello Sophia.)

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

(Hey Soph :)

Mr Smith, Mr Mercy said...

(Hello Gemma, and yes its fine to call me Jack)

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Hello, Silente. *hugs her tightly* Where did we get to with the roleplay?)

Erebus (In Blake Soul's body) said...

*Puts his arm around Chione's waist and holds her tightly*

You don't really believe him, do you..?

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief In The Land said...

(Herrow Smith. Have we met?)

I... I just said. Erebus is in control of Blake who was resurrected and is trying to destroy all light in the universe.

Chione Soul said...

Jesa - I'm alive, Chione and Tsubaki brought me back *spins around*
And now your curiousity might get you killed. You need to leave...now.
*Looks back up at her*
You have kids...and...a partner...
*Looks out to the forest then back at her* You need to get back to them.
*Starts to leave too, after the group*

Mr Smith, Mr Mercy said...

(Hello Trip, of course we have met)

Mr Smith, Mr Mercy said...

(@Trip Ed)

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

(@Soph Sil replied on the last page...I'll retype it.)


*pulls her face into a neutral position, ignoring her bloodied hands and slightly bloodied head*
*hugs Beth back, sighing*
I said feed Claire...

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief In The Land said...

(Ah, got it.)

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

Annabelle: *watches her leaving*
I-I...my head hurts...

Chione Soul said...

Chi: *shakes head and burrows into his chest*
Trip, We all saw Blake's body be buried...or at least a copy of it or something...
He- couldn't have...
No! *Turns to Trip*
This is my husband, his body. He came back for me. Why would Erebus ever do that? He's heartless and a coward.

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

Bethany: *she heals Silente - her wounds glowing white before closing* Claire is able to feed herself. You are my priority. I will call my mother.

Chione Soul said...

Jesa - Come on Annabelle, i'll take you back...
*Waits for her*

Millhouse Manastorm - Magic Enthusiast said...

*a horde of undead run at him*
*he throws his left hand out in an arc, cutting down anything 5 meters in front of him*
*zombies begins to walk out of the lake behind him and he starts to back up round the edge of the lake*
*casts a spell onto one of the zombies, causing it to become a bomb. it explodes with arcane energy, zombie parts flying everywhere giving him time to run from the remaining horde*

--------


*the pitter patter of feet are heard in the distance from where people are*
H-horde!... Z-zombies!... L-lots!... *trips up over a log and faceplates the ground*
*in the distance a horde of zombies are seen running, following him*

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

(Ah sorry Chloe. Missed that.)

MrBBWolf: *sighs*
Dont...come back a zombie..


*shakes head*
We need to go home first..


Annabelle: *joins Jes, rubbing her temple slightly, the spot where the shadows pierced*

Trip Castalan, Lord of The Hobbits, The Greatest Banana Thief In The Land said...

Largely because Erebus wants to take control of all of us and to do so he's going to integrate himself back into our society and take control one by one.

Lilliana and Alistair, they can testify to it!

Tanya Halcyon - Sticky Tape said...

(Hello. I will poof, so talk to me at your own risk. I wish you all a good day/night.)

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

(*cuddles Kas*)

Inky Flame the invisible ninja, Felix Corruption, Tawnee, Cole, Alys (The other half of the new ship Garky) (Chloe G) said...

Cole: I won't ...just look after the pups
*runs out of the cottage and follows Anna's scent*


Inky Flame the invisible ninja, Felix Corruption, Tawnee, Cole, Alys (The other half of the new ship Garky) (Chloe G) said...

(*huggles kassy*)

Cypher lord of the fallen (one half of the ship Garky) (Rhos G) said...

(Finally... The shiz going down in France as ended! (well it ended earlier ) the two gun men who did the atrocious attack are dead (both of them ) and a separate siege in a kosher supermarket has ended too, one of the two people who held the place up is apparently dead and the other one might be on the run...
But at least its over now )

Silente Tempest (Jai) said...

MrBBWolf: *watches him go*
*looks at Chris*
Is he going to die?

I feel very lucky to say that I have never experienced such a thing as writer's block...!:3

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

(Heh, 'overness' depends on perspective. Just because the people are dead doesn't mean that the event should be forgotten.)

Erebus (In Blake Soul's body) said...

What proof do you have Trip? The word of a being of death and someone who took the love of your life from you?

*He hugs Chione tightly*

I don't know why you're trying to turn my wife against me but I suggest you stop.

Star Inkbright - aka Straw Allegory, the Queen Metaphorist, Warrior Bubble, Addicted Analyser :) said...

MUSHROOM!!!

Commander Sophia Keating (N7 Operative and Council Spectre) said...

(Garrett - I rather think what happened shows the need for people like me to exist. People who can simply shoot if the person poses a threat to others. If people were less focused on making an arrest with people like that - then perhaps more people could have survived.)


Bethany: *they vanish in a flash of gold, reappearing in her house, continuing to hug her* Now?
