Well, I’ve got a decision to make about the protagonist halfway through Chapter 4 and I’m not sure what I’m going to do about it. I’ve got a decision to make about whether or not Julian acquires a certain artifact or misses out on the opportunity. I want my protagonist to have his faults and failures along his path, but this artifact could lead to interesting possibilities for later in the story.
I’ve been told that this is a new idea which is sort of unheard of, writing a novel in serial where friends and peers of the writer comment and help the author craft the story. I have no delusions of grandeur, but only hope to best express the tale that is in my head. The finer details, those are yet to be decided, as I sometimes write the story where it takes me.
Here is what I’m considering: To include a poll where you, my loyal readers, may help me decide on which path to choose when I’m facing a crossroads of indecision. I may disagree with your decision, but that would mostly be because of some greater purpose that I have in mind. It would at least give me a popular opinion. In any regard, I hope that you will be vocal in your support or rejection of ideas that I present.
I humbly hope to continue to provide you with something readable that is worthy of the time that you spend. Please, keep me informed on your thoughts by leaving a comment or two here. Perhaps we can discuss the story as it’s taking place!
