As mentioned before, I love the writing process because, for me, it’s so organic. Many things are unplanned. I know broad strokes about where things might go, character personalities, but not much else. Even the connections that readers say are so intricately woven and that I must have some sort of master plan–I’ve got news for you folks–there is no master plan!! 😛
The story evolves as I write it. Sometimes, it goes in a completely different direction than I intended.
This is one of those times.
And I absolutely loved writing this book because I got to watch the story unfold as I was writing it. I couldn’t wait to see where it would go.
One unintentional theme that is woven throughout this story is the focus on the father-son relationship. Only at about half way through did I realize the thread that just kept showing itself. Several father-son relationships are highlighted in this book:
* Eli and Ryu
* Tal and his longing for his lost son
* Maximus and the search for his father
* the Creature and the son it can’t claim
I wonder if these relationships will ever be “resolved.” My heart goes out to the fathers and sons who are/ have been lost to each other.
What truths will be revealed in the process?
