This is a novel idea that crowded into my consciousness just before National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) for November, 2010. I had previously been struggling with getting The Unseen going again, but I figured that a project change would kick-start my writing.
I was wrong. First of all, I had no outline to work with. Because of this, I got bogged down about 8,500 words in. And secondly, another big gut-punch from life was delivered early into the month. I love the idea for this novel, though, and I intend to pick it up again–perhaps for NaNoWriMo 2012.
I will post more about this novel idea soon.
