First of all, Happy Easter! I hope you all had a safe long weekend and didn’t eat too much chocolate 🙂
I’ve been in a bit if a slump lately and haven’t written anything for a couple of months. I’m hesitant to call it writer’s block, because I know I’ve written myself into a wall and haven’t planned this chapter very well. (See my post on this here)
So what do I do when this happens? I think about the scene and play with it in my mind until I have some sort of visual. I also find images help inspire me to get out of the slump.
Currently, Nika, Freyne, and their friends are in the Lorendian Desert, traveling across the Great Causeway. I have totally stuffed up the chapter, so I have been working on rewording parts to make it work. Instead, I have to scrap the entire chapter and start it again.
Here are some random photos I found online that have helped to spark the creative juices. This set includes different types of desert.
This set contains different stone bridges. The Causeway is one long raised bridge across the desert, with regular shelters to protect those who cross.
And of course, the Fens! The character who lives here is awesome, and I can’t wait to introduce you to him!
I’m also hung up on the name for one of my cities that my characters will soon be visiting. If you have any suggestions, leave it in the comments below!
Anywho, here’s hoping I can crawl out of my funk and get this finished in time for the June release!
Take care all <3
