I’ve already started working on a story, one I’m convinced will make me an extravagant millionaire, so that I may get to live comfortably while my spouse continues slaving away in the workplace.
…Okay, maybe that’s a little unrealistic.
I’d like to have my book ready to go, complete and prepared for submission to agent at least 1.5 or 2 years before my departure from the military. I’ve done some calculations, and according to my research, I’ll need to write about seventeen words a day for the next eight years if I want to achieve the 50,000-word novel mark. Seems doable, considering I write a lot more than seventeen words each time I sit down to add a little here and there. But then again, I don’t do it every day. I should probably consider making that regular routine.
But yes, my story. It will be science-fiction in nature, taking place across a long span of time. I’ve been using a lot of details based on my own personal interests and professional experiences, so there’s definitely some military stuff going on. I’m also a bit of a science nut, but it’s more of a hobby.
The main character’s name is James. I haven’t decided yet if I like it, or if I’ll change it. For the moment the name is serving as a placeholder.
So, feel free to tag along for the ride. Maybe we can learn a thing or two together :)
