I spent about four hours today with one of my peeps. We spent the whole time talking about Champion Rising. Brainstorming good ideas, shooting down stupid ones. We came up with a solid beginning, now I just need to write it all down. I need to reintroduce all the characters from Champion Standing quickly so someone who hasn’t read it still knows what’s going on. I don’t want to bore existing readers and keep it exciting to hook you. I think I’ve accomplished this and tonight is the first official day of writing for Champion Rising. I’ve got the new(ish) Pop Evil and Avenged Sevenfold albums to listen to while I write, so I’m excited… off to write.
