Drip drip drip. Trying to do a little witting each day. I first started this story over a decade ago. I know, that sounds really bad, but it was more I had started the notes on it. About five years ago I wrote out the first version of the story and then just.... got busy and set it aside. Now, I finally have the time to take it back up. I had made more notes on it and started rewriting. The first try was about 90K words. So far I am 42K in on version 2. Things have changed quite a bit. Renamed characters and groups, reworked characters and their motivations. The major goal posts have remained the same but everything between them has changed. It's kind of funny, when I made my notes, my 2nd lead at that time was a good guy. The story that got written had him as a rude bastard but still a good, if unpleasant guy. The third version... yeah.... Rude, abrasive, insulting, homicidal, genocidal(successful), genocidal(proposed) and definitely not a good guy. Now I end up researching odd things for the story. In the past month I've researched how fast a person on foot can travel, how far a person on horseback can travel, Slavic mythology and now plate tectonics..... definitely an odd mix.
