It usually takes me a little while to get invested into something I’m writing. I can write snippets of something every now and again, but most likely nothing comes from any of it, but sometimes I get lucky. I’ve had this idea of writing a novella for a while now, but I never really knew how to start it or organize the idea because I’m usually not someone who has the urge to write something like a novella. Vola (The Palm Of The Hand) started out as something simple, a name. I simply liked the name of the project and then I ran with it from there, but as I kept running I discovered that sometimes you need something more than just a name you like and that’s when a few days ago happened. I had been running with a ton of ideas for the story for quite some time, but none fit well enough and then I just had this sudden interest in this new story and started writing out the first chapter. It ended up being something perfect for Vola. I know how this isn’t how things are traditionally written, but then I realize that I am anything but traditional.
I’ll hopefully be making frequent updates on the status of the novella as I work on it and I’ll try to keep it interesting without giving too much away. Let’s hope this becomes something more than just a name I like.
