This is my most intricate collection, and the one that I still have a lot more work to do on, because of the number of worlds, the number of races, and the characters that keep popping into my head. There are stories I need to write and post; more bonus material than I will be able to complete in a month (as I now realise); and magics I need to understand. At the moment I am working with a limited number of worlds and there is still so much more work to do on them, let alone moving onto other worlds, and the strange thing is that I love it. Not always knowing where things are going is kind of fun, although it can also be irritating when things don’t seem to work together (the wonders of working with characters who lie and scheme and hide little pieces of themselves). Of course I’m almost certain, after writing stories for several worlds, that there are different layers to each of them… which probably doesn’t make sense.
The magic used to create the web was new and most of what the fae did was experimentation, with no idea what was going to happen. Choices were made quickly due to fear. Now there are a collection of magical worlds that never existed before and each one, to me, seems a little like an onion. We talk of parallel universes where there may be another one of us who has made different decisions and lives an entirely different life. Now, I don’t think that every decision affects the magic, but there are those that do, and their parallel universes are parts of the same world, leading to layers of world, making them rather like an onion.
History is a big interest of mine. I read a lot about the Plantagenets and the Tudors, and I’ve never been able to stop myself thinking about what would have happened if… and there are more ifs that I can contemplate. When I create my own histories there are ifs. What if some of the fae, the Gold family, stayed on the fae’s old world? Would they have changed things if they had gone back in time? What if Raenarin’s Witch Queen had never been assassinated? How would that have changed the world? I want to write some of them, some of the layers of world, because I care about the ifs.
The problem is knowing that there are so many more posts I want to write about this collection. When I look at the my other collections there are posts I want to write about them too, and it feels like there isn’t enough time to write the posts, write the stories, and do everything I want to do. It’s possible I may end up having to work instead of being able to focus on my writing, but if I don’t have enough time now then… I don’t know what will end up happening. Having my website is wonderful. I’ve earned a little money this week. Things seem to be getting better. I just need to know that I can make money through this, even if it is just enough to buy food every week, because I don’t want to have to cut down the work I do.
Posting almost every day has made me happy. Having a focus has worked wonders, although my brain is still plot bunnying. Now I just need to work out how I can keep doing this and make money, so ideas would be great. Writing is what I want to be doing, so ghostwriting may work for me, and there are a couple of things I want to try out, but nothing is definite right now. Is there anything I can do here that people would pay money for? Ebooks are something I’m going to work on and I plan on doing bundles (mobi, epub and PDF together), but that will take time, so I need something faster. Yes, I realise I’ve been posting rather a lot about money recently, but having to move out, when we weren’t ready, has changed things and I need to earn. As soon as I possibly can.
