I just spent an hour working on the first draft of the outline story for Secret Project #1. It is not perfect, it is not polished, in fact it has holes big enough for an elephant to jump through. But it’s a start. And it feels good.
I think I have not spent that much time working on a new story in… I have no idea how long.
There will be much more work. For this project the way how the story is told is going to be much more interesting and challenging than the what. The medium cannot only be the message but also the story.
However, without knowing what you want to tell, the how is pretty much irrelevant. It might not be terrible original, or complex, or artistic. But I know have rough idea what the story is going to be like and that has probably been the most critical thing for this project.
I’ll keep you posted.
