Philotimaea

It is ridiculously hard to write about this place. I'm just saying that no normal words do it justice and I feel like I'm going to need a thesaurus. =/ There are only so many times you can use gold and golden without sounding like you're describing what you might find in someone's piggy bank. :P

Onwards! The second scene in Chapter 19: Philotimaea is being written now. Hopefully I'll be able to not kill someone this chapter.... ;)

General Update

It's been a productive couple of weeks! Considering that I find it hard to write more than two words on most days, the fact that I've completed another chapter and a quarter is fairly good. Of course, it helps when you're excited about writing the things that are happening. Chapter Nineteen opens up another plot point and really shows the multiple worlds that exist in my universe. Hopefully I'll be better able to communicate to the audience that the Celestia and their God are only one facet to the entire collection of infinity. And, also, it opens the series up for more books from different points of view! ... Not that I'm actively planning those or anything.... (except, I do have a rough outline happening in my head... ugh, someone stop me! :P)

The word wars that I've been having with Angeface (who is writing a pretty kick-ass version of Will Scarlet from the tales of Robin Hood) have really, really helped keep me focused and on-plot with the book. The encouragement does it all, really. And the fact that I know someone is reading and understanding my mass of ramble! XD Always helpful!

Anyhow, that's enough from me today. Lots to do!
