Let My People Go! Thoughts on Writing a Novel

Ok, so a few days ago I told you about my big audacious plan, the one which is going to turn my life upside down.

The plan which, I mentioned, starts with the novel that I’m currently writing.

I think I’m about 50% through with the first draft, and I have the storyline about 80% ready. More or less.

I’m not yet sure how to marry to main character to the waitress at the roadside diner, but I’m sure I’ll figure something out as I go along.

It’s a bit of an adventure, this book.

I think I would call it a sci-fi comedy noir, but that doesn’t really do it justice.

It’s… more out there than that.

It’s called:

“We’ve got humans!”

This is the Prelude (for now):

###

“STOP!”

Vlardr slammed on the brakes.

His mining rig hung still in space, slightly humming.

Somewhere outside in the vacuum, it seemed there was a gospel choir going “Hummmmm….” in a particularly jazzy harmony of hot fifths and sevenths.

He looked at the shimmering apparition in front of him and said: “Guy, get out of the way. This is a very powerful machine and if you don’t move it’ll hurt you. Badly.”

“I said stop”, replied the shape. “Let my people go!” The gospel choir picked up in volume, and a tiny trumpet started playing a solo in a blues scale.

Vlardr said: “Who are you?”

Thunderously, it sounded “I am GOD”.

Vlardr the Stoic blinked.

“Who?”

I TOLD you it’s out there…

In stores and on Kindle in the next two months or so, Zarquon help me.

Do forgive that this isn’t a helpful sales-teaching email like normal – I’ve been stuck with the storyline for months, and only yesterday finally had the a-ha moment, so now I know where to go with it.

I’m excited, I can’t wait to finish this thing.

Cheers,

Martin
