strengthening family

 Sorry folks…re-cycling an old Q&A due the Bane’s moving back home (yea and finally! 🙂 ), but this is a goodie! Q: Can you tell us why your message is so important? For the ones that understand why it’s important but for those who don’t, maybe you can let them know why. I for one understand why it’s so important.     A: Good question. I think in short, the message is so important because families are becoming extinct. Our society is getting so that pleasures and passions dictate our moral code of conduct, rather than our moral code of conduct … Continue reading

Doris Mahala
Q: I am a person who loves to tell stories. Would like to be someone lucky enough to become a published author. 

The process I am attempting is a sort of outline such as I used for book reports or for other reports when I was in college. Now my question is regards the process you use. 

How do you create the character, surrounding world of the main character and the supporting characters. The good and the bad so that work together for the wonderful work you create.

Lucian Answers
A: Hi Doris, so nice to meet you. I too use a similar outline process. I usually use a loose version of the snowflake method which is pretty much an outline process geared toward the creation of a story! I usually outline the skeleton, or the heart of the story, not to be considered the “rough” part of the story but rather the solid foundation. The major plot lines, the major events that I would like to see happen, that’s what I usually consolidate first, and then when I begin to write it, I move into Character Drive and allow them to give this skeleton not just a body and mind, but a soul. I guess in a sense, I write the premise of the story via outline then I search for the character that I would like to see fill it, and once I do that, I allow him/her to bring those ideas into existence. It’s a dance between formulas and creativity, a marriage of mind and matter and in my story Scribbler Guardian, this creative process is depicted in a fantasy setting. If you’re interested in reading that by the way, slip me your email and I’ll gift you a copy.

Usually, the biggest challenge of this type of creativity lies within the medium of storytelling in the written word form. Readers usually are never aware of the science behind it, but the seasoned writer understands the intricate tools of the trade wielded by the little man behind curtain creating illusions so powerful, they actually move things–people in particular.

I hope I answered your question, if not, shoot me another one! And remember that writing is work and can even become a job, but if you’re passionate about it, you can make it a job you love.

Karri
Q: I know it varies but what is the longest it has taken you to write a book and do you usually have more than 1 going at a time?

Lucian Answers
A: Hi Karri, thank you for asking. I usually take a month to write around 60k which is considered a full length novel. And no, usually I do not have more going at once but sometimes I do lol. I find it difficult to switch gears, but mostly it’s a discipline thing for me. I like to have all my guns locked and loaded on one piece.

12/6/2014 7:29:26 In Ruin, I am devastated. We lost a good character (Trying not to give away a spoiler here.) Why go that route?   Syrina, is this you? Hahaha. Syrina is RUINED and obsessed about this question. Everywhere I go, she’s there, asking it in some form or another. She reminds me of Inspector Clouseau in a different disguise at every location. Okay, if it’s not her, I do owe a fuller answer than I’ve given, so let me give it a shot. I always knew something major was coming in this story. If you read my journey with … Continue reading

  • Note:

    I usually refer to males as the more dominant and females as the more submissive. The intention is NOT to say that ALL relationships should fit that pattern. My relationship experience is with male dominant, female submissive arrangements and that is the only sort of relationship I have firsthand knowledge about.
