At first, i was going to attempt to bring Dar Oma into the world of novel, until I realized starting with a founding cast well over 50 characters, is not good for a first novel.
so then i had this amazing epiphany a few weeks ago - we've done some amazing plot-things with our covenant RP (because Jen and I make the most beautiful bunnies together) so, why not novelize that?
So i decided to start with the Corrine and Roland and Tom in Tennessee arc. Because it's a good starting point, relatively small founding cast (12 coven characters, 3 family characters, a few NPCs for fun) and a really, really good plot that covers all the fun bases.
well, we have this AU comm, with corey, and Roland (no Tom though yet). The au comm and the novel are similiar in a few aspects ... but the comm keeps creeping into the novel. i've had to do some severe editing - twice - because of this.
it amuses me as much as it pisses me off.
so i had to write myself a nasty note in the cast list/note section of the novel. :;nods:: i was very mean to myself. called myself a dumbass.
it was kind of amusing, actually.
