August 20th, 2012

For the past three weeks I've been having severe lower back pain.  At first I thought it was how I slept. I mean, that's normal right? Blame your bed? So I thought it'd go away after awhile.

One week later and the pain was unbearable. I had a hard time walking, sitting, sleeping. Taking a shower became a long , grueling process. I finally decided to go the VA to get checked out (yes, I'm a veteran.)

I took an xray, they gave me a prescription of Prednisone, Flexidril, and Ibuprofin. The doctor told me if the pain didn't go away or if it got worse, to come back immediately and schedule an CT scan.

Fast forward.

My lower back is still throbbing and now I have a CT scan on Sept 6th. Horrible.

A few years ago I had this idea for a novella. There's a character that's been sitting in the back of my brain for awhile, yelling for the spotlight.

At first, I wasn't sure how I wanted to approach it. I had several ideas: cameos, maybe a prologue or an epilogue devoted just for her. However, that would mean that she would have to have some kind of important role.

There's too much going on in Deamhan and Sensual Appetite to include her. I've tried several times and failed. (There seems to be this thing with me, including characters only to take them out later.)

Then two days ago it came to me. Why not just write a novella? I mean, I had plenty of her written down (that I had to take out from Deamhan and Sensual Appetite) to have a good start. Why not just devote a novella to her? That way, when I finally decide to include her, possibly in the 3rd novel, there would be enough of her out there already for the reader to know.


The working title is "Maris - The Brotherhood Files." So far, I'm having a blast and I've already added about 8,000 words. I'm enjoying her storyline more than I am Sensual Appetite. I hope to include her in the third Deamhan novel. But for now, I think she's a strong stand alone character.
