Second Book Progress

January 19, 2011 at 6:46 pm (Uncategorized)

My Muse and I spoke a lot last night about the second book and made some progress on the details. I had an idea of what I wanted in a scene and my Muse helped me to perfect the details. We were going to end our discussion at nine last night so that we could both get to bed early, but the discussion ended up going on until about eleven. lol That seems to be our way. Once we’re in the conversation we lose track of time and by the time we’re finished we’ve traveled along through nearly the whole book thinking up scenes and new twists to make the book even more exciting. I’m so thankful to have a Muse to help me to make my book the best that it can be. It’s really very creepy how things work out when we get to talking about the book. We talk about different ideas and when I do the research to see how to work it in online it always seems perfect. Spoiler Alert: I’m going to talk about one such experience while talking about the second book. We looked at an atlas to see how far Egypt was from Ireland per the first book and then went the opposite direction the same distance for the second book and it put us squarely in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. We had an idea about the lost city of Atlantis. We are also going to be going to the Amazon’s at some point and we found that where we wanted to be along the Amazon river is almost straight south of the spot in the Atlantic. Also, the spot on the Amazon’s is directly on the Equator and the spot in the Atlantic is directly on the Tropic of Cancer. My Muse also mention something about the Bermuda Triangle. We had talked about going straight East to the United States which would place us at the islands between North and South America and low and behold that took us exactly into to the Bermuda Triangle. Therefore every idea we had worked one right into the other. It is creepy but also very amazing. There were other events in the second book that dawned on us that made more sense and worked into the story so much more effeciently than would could ever have thought. 

That’s all the spoilers and info for today. Now for the writing process of the ideas and bringing the book together. More will follow as the story comes together.

    You’re hilarious. NOT Just kidding. Not sure whether it’s you or divine intervention. For the sake of your ego I’m gonna say divine intervention. 😉

  3. The Muse said,

    hey now! you know i’m that good and i know i’m that good. i will say i do my research though. its called watching a lot of the history channel. 🙂 with a little help from on high.

    A lot of help from on high, and a little bit of crazy in the head helps. 🙂
