I have begun work on option 2, Broken Time. In the preliminary overview of this series, which is planned to be a trilogy:
The worlds of Hai, Del, and Jik, and even time itself, are breaking apart. Starlord, Creator of the Universe, has called three young people, one from each world, to go throughout Hai, Jik and Del and defeat the Khraphilim and Thanathrim that serve under the authority of Shadowlord, the Consumer of the Universe. He has gifted them with a map—a map to the three Weapons of Elokei—the Book of Shahrazu, the Stars of Ranel-Xia, and the Sword of Armion.
This has been outdated as I have begun work on Book One, tentatively titled The Caverns of Uzar. Already, two of the main characters have had work done on their names—Aridian became Erikan, and Matthei became Matheeu. The last name is one I'm pretty happy with—Amberil.
My current word count is 2,659 words. That is the product of two days of work. I only have the first part of Amberil's story, and it's going slower than other projects I've worked on, like The Dzoei Stone…but I'm quite happy with what I've come up with.
I also used an interview-tag to further develop my characters, and it's helped tremendously. I now know one of Erikan's fears, the name of Amberil's best friend, and the name that Matheeu hates being called. I know that Erikan enjoys teasing, but gets punched a lot for it, and I also know what Matheeu calls Erikan when he wants to upset him. I know what Matheeu likes to do in his free time, and what colour Amberil's eyes are. If you want, I can post the interview in the next post, whenever that comes.
I expect to have a lot of fun with these characters together on their journeys through the three worlds of Del, Jik and Hai.
