The Novel Idea for 2014

Lately, I've been struggling to find a story that I love enough to spend the hours it takes to construct a novel out of. Well, today I was jotting down story ideas when I decided to go back to some of my short stories that are in progress (and have been for a while) and. . .BAM!

An idea hit me. I completely fell in love with one of my short story characters. It was one of my first attempts at short stories, and writing his origins story really connected me to him. Why not write a novel about him?

So, I am officially going to begin working on my first Car' Al novel! 

So far, all I really know about the story is it is going to take place far after the time that the short stories are written in. I am fairly certain that Car' Al will be in his forties, which is still fairly young for a rock troll. He's grown a lot as he's aged, and he's experienced much more than he had even in his first two stories. He'll have a human companion and some friend's that might be even more surprising.

All in all, don't get too excited about the prospects of the novel if you have purchased the short stories or downloaded the free version of New Beginning. I haven't started writing the novel yet, but I was so excited about the prospect of writing a Car' Al novel that I had to throw this out into the blogosphere and the many people that follow me online. I hope you enjoyed the update and are as excited about a Car' Al novel as I am!
