#amwriting #wip Thoughts around book development

Mi Kee started as a simple idea and I suppose I knew of the torrent of ideas that were scanning back 1200 years to the point at which I intended to start writing and just ducked into the idea of the pre-quels but when you are inventing a world, animals, people, politics you get forced to go back and I don’t want to leave for later, even if it destroys everything I’ve done.

The devil is in the detail and thinking is one thing but making it happen is usually a long hard slog or in this case a planetary journey with only a pair of modern running shoes and not my old leather barefoot shufflers, taking on the impossible.

Destraight changes names and lives and areas of existence – I didn’t understand that when I began or what Destraight actually means or how it pans out.

There is a start of the first prisoners and the Admirals who wanted and agreed to take 20,000 slaves each – almost as a favour.

There is another stage of prisoner deliveries and I won’t talk about that but it won’t be as quick as Dwarvia likes as the ships for several reasons take longer than forty years to arrive.

There is also a development of life, politics and – I won’t talk about that, especially as I haven’t thought it out yet.

Eventually, there are people, even Dwarfs who fight and die but now for a world, for a country and for themselves – leading to Politics and the ensuring nastiness.

Then a Dwarf in revenge for the killing of his love by a dwarf – Griselda – destroys the world – yet again.

His spells lead to a few things.

Mostly this lot leads to a lot of hard work for me.
