Now where was I with Episode, my sequel to Epiworld? Oh aye, chapter 7, pathetic when you consider I started writing the stupid thing a year ago! Should be plain sailing from here now, though (I just hope I’m not speaking too soon!) I’m up to the part where Alice and Travis have been thrown through a time portal back to Ancient Greece and have landed on the feast table where King Menelaus and his brother King Agamemnon are celebrating his forthcoming marriage to Princess Helen. Alice and Travis are thrown in the dungeons and Helen makes the guard free them, but Travis discovers that he’s too late to save her from a marriage she doesn’t want: she’s already Menelaus’ wife.
For anyone who knows anything about Greek literature, I’m using the story of The Iliad as a backdrop for the book, and Helen is integral to the plot, though as yet I’m not sure how. I have to kick-start my motivation, don’t I, and have some idea where I’m going with the book. That’s not going to be easy and I return to my day job on Monday as well. Can’t wait. Not.
I can’t say I’ll start tomorrow, because tomorrow never comes, so when will I start again?
No time like the present!
