So, not the most creative play on words for the sequel to Estelan, but the time is coming where I will no longer be able to suppress the story for Echo Rising. I have been working to complete End of the Night for my Emerald Seer Series but Estelan keeps pushing into my creative mind. Kitin and Tyla are especially forceful and I have lengthy notes dribbled across two notebooks for bits and pieces of conversations, encounters, and confrontations that have me excited. I am not a person to detail my entire story, I can't seem to make that work because I go off track too often so this works better for me. I know where the story is going and main points to hit along the way but I find it terribly important to follow the main characters and make sure they do not act out of character just to hit a plot point I may have mapped out months (or years) ago. It may not be the conventional way of doing things, in fact, there is a thread on the amazon forums with a grand debate over mapping out novels, but I have to stay true to what works for me and frankly, I don't care much for the "right way" to do things. How can there be a right or wrong way in a world so reliant on creativity?
I digress. This post was meant to give an update on Estelan, to assure any concerned fans that Kitin, the Twins, Tyla, Lykae, Cord and the others will be returning soon enough and I know they are eager to tell their stories before I introduce the other half of Estelan - the vast deserts and rocky cliffs of the sunlit side.
