This is the very roughest cut of my writing as it was done quickly, on very little sleep, and after work when my brain isn't always the sharpest. So far I have succeeded in writing "a story" every day which is sort of my plan. I had intended to jump around in my mind's plot but these two stories go together. In fact, they are sort of a prologue and opening chapter to the whole thing. This is only a tiny taste of what I have in my head as I still haven't worked the dynamics of magic into the narrative yet.

Have I told you here how super excited I am about this plot? I gush all the time at work, especially after a night where good ideas have slipped onto my paper, sometimes almost by accident. This world is a lot darker than it was initially. It's a tad more steampunkish than just turn-of-the-century, although the world is actually post-apocalyptic in a way that I haven't completely sketched out yet.

My writing music as been the most beautiful album! A History of Scotland performed by BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra. There are a couple of tracks on YouTube but I found it on Spotify and it's been on repeat ever since. I even turned it on this morning before I fully awoke and let it run while I went back to sleep. It's can't hurt now that it's in my subconscious!!!

Was talking to the girls at work today about how much I was enjoying reading The Night Circus (had started it but put it down to read Dracula) and was mentioning that it had been a NaNo novel. If I remember correctly, she had taken a dare and... Voila. A novel. Okay, not voila. But she did go down a path she'd never intended to go on.

I think I'm going to do the same thing. I'm going to take my Streetlight characters and just... let them go wild. No dare is too insane, no prompt crazy enough. I'm going to do NaNo the way it is meant to be done and which I've never done it. I'm not going to plan or graph or stress. I'm going to have fun and I'm going to ask my characters to do the same.

It's early yet to be planning these things but it was such a freeing revelation to have this afternoon that I just had to share.

First and foremost - I'm praying for you, Elle.

Next, I went on the trip this weekend thinking I would just read and read and read. I ended up staring out the window most of the time, mulling over some Streetlight People ideas. This is the first of many new scenes I'm hoping to get out of my head in the next couple of days.

This is, I think, the first scene in the Streetlight People story. I think. It feels like it. Right now, at least.

Found this video this morning...



That is such a Tevan/Kilce video that I can't even stand it. Tevan's face is Dan but he's much older than I wanted the characters to be do I made it so he was further away in the picture. Stephanie (Plumb) was almost Kilce (and the reason that the character had purple streaks in earlier incarnations) but then I found the blue hair pic and I never looked back.

When I found this video this morning, I realized that THIS is a Streetlight People video, though. The clothing is almost spot on what I imagine in my head. I swear I haven't seen this video before today! It mirrors my thoughts enough on the 'verse that it's kind of freaky!

enjoy!

I must beg your forgiveness. As you know, all of these stories are just world building for the ideas that have been in my head lately. I came to a point, last round of writerverse, that required something of the plot I'd come up with. The problem I ran into was that I still needed to world build! There are still things in my head that I haven't been able to get out that you need to know before I get much further.

One of the sticking points in my head has been Lady Cyril Ann Bray's past. She was the one character that came into this world with a name and an identity already sort of intact because she came from the previous incarnation of the Streetlight People. Part of the reason that she made the jump was because I liked her so much! Problem was, when I started to write out some of her past, I tried to tweek it too much so that it came out all twisted up and not right at all.

So the reason that I must beg your forgiveness is because this is not necessarily what you've been led to believe about Cyril Ann from some of the past stories. This, I believe, is more in line with the history that I want her to have, though.

I also must beg your forgiveness because this ends on a cliff-hanger that I never intended to have! With any luck, I'll find time to write tomorrow (Easter Sunday) and will get CA out of the predicament she finds herself in.
