In Terrafoma (the book) our protagonist works to transform the world as we know it into one that might support alien life, namely his own. The quest is benign but he must operate under a continuous string of seemingly harmless lies while artfully ducking sticky complications. To hear him tell his story you'd think he had experience as a fiction writer.
Hi folks, I just took the plunge and drafted 70,000 words of a novel length fantasy. It's the sixth year I've tried to finish a book. Some of you may know it's not easy. I didn't plan on trying again.
Pow! This time I have something pretty solid. I am hooked. I truly believe in this book.
The hardest work is ahead. Six to nine months of food and rent, (most likely some dental work, uh-yep) to help stay focused on text revisions and editing should do it.
Completing this book would be a dream come true and a kick in the butt. If I could only get the chance to finish.
