I’m focusing on creating a mythology for Celestia this month. It’s complicated and right now it feels impossible to conjure this whole world out of nothing. Then I have to make sure the story hangs together and the world is consistent. I have to think through every detail, not only physically, but morally too. How do the Gods interrelate? Who talks to whom? Who hates who and why? How do they get revenge? How do you get them to make peace?
I’m sticking bits of paper with scribbled thoughts all over the cupboards, wall of my writing room and the huge whiteboard that covers one wall in the garage. I’m even writing on the windows, like they do in the movies.
Hopefully it will all come together in my head and make a coherent whole. I just have to trust that this scrabbling in the compost of my mind will lead to something worthwhile.
