I have paused writing to do several things. The first and most important of these is the development of the storyline. That's been going quite well.
The second is character development. I have been developing the characters that are going to take part in this story. The supporting characters, that is. And it's been a fascinating journey. Now I know Ganorci's personality. Tye's way of speaking. Kai's secret fear. Jorda's feelings towards his family. I discovered a familial link that I didn't know before. It's amazing what one interview can do for your characters.
Third, world development. I didn't do much of this, except to write down the names of about twenty books that exist in the world of Del. In the process, I discovered how the people of Ehlex are named.
Fourth…brainstorming. I have several twists in my head that may or may not come true. This is going to be a really fun book to write.
I have a tentative name for the series. I'm dropping 'Broken Time' and initiating the new name…
…but my only problem is that I have two tentative names, not one.
Which of these do you prefer? Why? Remember the why. Why?
The Oracles of Arithora
The Arithoran Chronicles
That's about all I have to say.
