I have decided to track the development of the Coureur de Bois series in the hopes of being able to further synthesize my writing process. At first, it was strictly for me to reflect upon my writing process and identify tough spots, difficulties, roadblocks, etc. But I have decided to bite the bullet and create a blog.
God help me, what sort of fresh Hell have I gotten myself into?
The goal is to create a contemporaneous account of the creation, development, and maturation of the series. I expect construction and grammar to be horrendous, as I will likely be tired, sleepy, worn out, frustrated, angry, or some combination when I post. Use of the “backspace” key will be avoided. Once it is typed, I intend to leave it the way it is.
My guess is that something similar to this has already been done ad nauseam, but the “Aristocrats” joke has been around forever and people still tell it, even when the audience know the punchline. It’s about the telling.
The first few entries will be posted one right after the other to get them up to date. Other than that, they will be posted as they are written.
As with most things in life, I am figuring it out as I go, so please feel free to give me comments, complaints, suggestions, questions, or even just general harassment. It keeps me humble.
