Friday 29 November 2013

This section outlines the basis of my story world in terms of how the supernatural races came to be, and the cause and purpose of the “meddling” that has led to history bending away from what we know.

If you’re only interested in who ends up marrying whom, skip to the next post. >8)

Outtakes from “Murchad is let down by the rules”

Wednesday 29 February 2012

'Unused picture from Murchad is let down by the rules'

“Murchad is let down by the rules” was originally intended to be much longer. In fact it was supposed to be two chapters, the second being the scene in Dublin Castle’s hall. (It even had a preview banner ready.)

Sixth Anniversary: Prologue Chapters

Tuesday 29 November 2011

Anniversary time already. The Kingdom of Lothere: So romantic since 2005!

So romantic!

Year Six has been an interesting one for me. I was laid off in March, and although I quickly found another cool job, that speed bump certainly affected my output over here in the story. It looks like I only wrote 44 new chapters in the last year: less than one per week. :redface:

Young Aed Storyline

Sunday 16 October 2011

To prepare for the upcoming chapter, I pulled together a new storyline for Young Aed. It inevitably has some political stuff in it, but I tried to limit it as much as possible so as not to have too much overlap with the “Storm on the Irish Sea” storyline. I focus on chapters that reveal Aed’s character: sometimes cunning and sometimes childish, sometimes ruthless and sometimes compassionate.

“There’s no telling what they’ll do! Girls are completely crazy, I find.”

—The Old Man, “Conrad goes too far”

There is a special challenge in writing interesting female characters in historical fiction—at least in places and periods where women were not on equal footing with men, which is pretty much everywhere, at every time.

The 10 Most Romantic Chapters of Lothere

Tuesday 7 December 2010

She was three years older now and knew better than to look for romance in tragedy.

— Lady Gwynn, “Gwynn is the only witness”

I saved this list for third because I wanted to get the “Greatest Tear-​jerkers” and “Hottest Moments” out of the way. Otherwise, how could I do a list of “Most Romantic” without putting “Alred sees no poetry” at the top of it? How could I get away without mentioning “Malcolm goes out into the rain”?
