As the Clockwork Storybook 30 Day Writing Challenge continues, Sean E. Williams gives us a peak at “Project Lima.”
I’m nicknaming it “Project Lima” for now, as I have no idea yet what the actual title is. I have a placeholder title I’m using, but it gives too much of the story away, so we’ll stick with Project Lima.
I started out with a setting, more than anything else. The first half of the first day I struggled between trying to decide between P.L. and another project that I had already put a lot of development into. Finally, a story engine for P.L. popped into my head, and I decided to run with it.
What I can reveal currently is that it’s a young adult fantasy novel, set in ancient Egypt. That’s all I can go into, but it still has me excited with the possibilities. Right now it’s looking to shape up into a four-book series, and the ideas for each of the books keep pouring in. I’m only doing the first book for the 30-Day Challenge, though. And the best part, and one of the main reasons I decided to do this book, was that I know how the entire series ends already. The ending is built into the premise, actually. I feel like it’s a sturdy enough foundation to carry the four books easily.
