I guess this is the best time to announce my little project. My old project called For Her Moon turned into a victim of this particular work. I know I’d announced For Her Moon last year, but this is one of those times where writer’s block did a very bad thing. Not going to lie, though, this time was necessary; that little project got stalled for many reasons I will talk about when I’d returned to it. Not going to happen soon, I am afraid.
Black Fields is this project that’d been cooking in my head for a very long time. I don’t consider it a (too) personal work, but something inside me told me I should take the first step into fantasy literature in this language with it.
So far, I’ve written most of its prologue and first chapter on a physical journal and a bit of world building on an Excel spreadsheet. I feel happy with the initial results.
For now, the status remains as a project. I’ll be working hard during the month to have it ready before December. And perhaps try to look for a traditional publisher after the final editing process. I believe, however, that I am going to end up picking the independent path; my numbers here and social media are very low, so I don’t expect someone actually picking attention on me at the moment. I guess KDP is the choice.
Before all the publishing process, I added a Project Journal, and that’s going to be used exclusively to keep track of my literary projects and share it with you. I’d like to capture all the process, from world building, character building, through the whole process of the project. Nothing that reveals anything of the story, but at least something to grab a little attention until its release.
I hope you follow me through all the creation of Black Fields!
