Birth of an Epic

My faith in imagination has been vindicated. I kept writing, even when I thought there was no more story to tell, and discovered that I am telling a bigger story than I set out to tell. There are holes in the first part of it but that’s what writing a first draft is all about, finding the parts that work, figuring out the parts that don’t work, and discovering the parts that you left out the first time around.

I still don’t know where this story is going but I do know that I am enjoying writing it like nothing I’ve ever done before. I wish I had more time to dedicate to writing. But I’m going to enjoy every minute that I do get to spend on it.

I just spent the afternoon and evening binge watching most of the second season of Game of Thrones. That is a well told story. Although my story is of a different genre and involves different themes, I would do well to learn what I can from George R. R. Martin.

I’ve always liked epic stories. I never realized that I would try to write one. This may take a good bit longer to write than a single month. So be it.

Sweet dreams, don’t forget to tell the ones you love that you love them, and most important of all, be kind.
