What Comes Next

19 12 2008

One of the reasons this book is taking so long is because of all the background detail. Two chapters ago I thought the Mutiny on the Dragon was going to happen next. Boy was I surprised.

I knew I had a Caliphate Fleet headed towards Cardoman and I knew there were about 20 major ships involved on the Calp side and another dozen for the good guys. What I didn’t know was what the names of the ships were or who the Captains were. I didn’t know if I needed to know. It depended on how the battle went. I knew how it would turn out but not the details.

What I did was name all the ships and figure out who the Captains were. That took most of a day. Made it easier to write the first part of the battle and it will make Chapter 20 and 21 run smoother. I think it will take 2 or 3 chapters to finish the Battle in Space. Not needing to come up with new names is going to help.

I have a start on 20 and know what will happen in that one. Things are going to get very tough for the Cards.
