Can’t Stop Me Now

Some time ago, I began my first novel. I had just completed a novella, my longest work at the time, and I was yearning for something a bit more expansive. That something turned out to be the revelatory and often autobiographical experience, musings, struggle, and, ultimate journey of one Alasdair James Galloway. And the story that encapsulates young Alasdair’s journey is the in-progress novel A Thousand Screaming Rabbits.

That is where the blog comes into play. It’s been something like eight months since I’ve written any legitimate fiction, and I need to remedy that. This blog will act as a sort of writing tool; an ongoing characterization of my “journey” until its invariable (!) completion. That is, at the very least, the goal. I will not actually include the story within the blog itself (although I will probably insert snippets here and there) but will instead write about just about everything else pertaining to said story: technical details, themes, ideas, characters, inspirations, et al. This blog will also help me stay on  task. No more random, if not intentionally disruptive, musings simply because I don’t have the courage to continue.

My hope is that you, my friends, will take part, play along, indulge and support me along the way.
