where are we at, well thats a good question, I’m going to leave out the 1.5 hour train trip home tonight, thats the EPIC fucking debacle of V/Line. Quite possible i would blow off the relief valve altogether.
What we did get to do on the train home tonight was some more planning on INTENSE. Thats detailed chapter planning going forward, like we have never, never done before. Usually its a rough, very rough outline and the ending has always been a …SORTA thing in my head. Well I have scrapped what was the previous ending. I’ve nutted out the BIBLICAL event, a couple of minor stoushes, some behind the scenes items as well and managed to drag political elements within the countries into the mix as well. That should help meld the whole thing together.
Better still, by the time we do the final scenes and I have a fair idea how they are to go, it will still leave the door open to expand it further, I’m really thinking waaay to far ahead for a beginner, but I would suspect our TEAM, will venture much farther afield yet..well more than just their ending.
it came to me on the train…..OFF THE RESERVATION..and to do that you need a great big fucking catalyst to make people do it!…I’m happy, its the most forethought I have done,I’ve been told by umpteeen people to do it, but busting it up now and planning has made fkn great sense and help fuckloads….AGAIN..a lesson learnt the hard way and noted after ya have done it.
Oh and before I completely forget, I got a piece of advice from JP the other week, thats James Phelan for those who don’t know and that fella would be a PUBLISHED AUTHOR, ya know, Blood Oil, Fox Hunt and so on. JP, writes on say Thursday, lets say two chapters. Then when he starts again Friday, the first thing he does is review the two chptrs or whatever had been written, does some editing and continues on. makes sense hey…well for the uninitiated IT FKN does not occur to you, unless you are gifted of course. THATS, HANG ON!, lets back up some. I wish to fuck I had known that at the very start!. Anyways. Props to JP and Naut for the exercise we did, and catching up and the banter.
