Workshop Book Progress - Week 1

I will start by listing several ideas for books then associate concepts to those ideas.  I will pick one of these for which I have the most emotional energy.  I will then craft a story arc for this idea/concept pair.

List of Ideas

- After a global financial collapse a young man and his dog travel from Alaska to Montana

- A research scientist uncovers a plot by the US Gov and an alien race to genetically alter humans

- Karmascendia, Book 2: Rachel is missing.  Donae and Rachel's child along with Donae's sister must find her before Donae's final confrontation with the evil that has returned.

Associating Concepts to Ideas


After a global financial collapse a young man and his dog travel from Alaska to Montana

  • Bravery and being a leader are characteristics you are born with.

A research scientist uncovers a plot by the US Gov and an alien race to genetically alter humans.

  • Greed makes one blind to manipulation

Karmascendia, Book 2: Rachel is missing. Donae and Rachel's child along with Donae's sister must find her before Donae's final confrontation with the evil that has returned.

  • Even the strongest person needs help

The Story Arc

 After spending several hours listing ideas, matching concepts to the ideas, and deciding which idea held the most emotional energy I chose the first idea and created the story arc.  I've included the story arc and book progress in PDF format below.

The Book Begins - Title: Encoded Justice

The PDF may open large and show a blank page. There is a "-" and "+" at the bottom of the viewer. Mouse click on the "-" until it brings the full page into view. From there use the arrows on the bottom left side of the viewer to navigate through the document. The page can be moved up or down by holding the left mouse button down while moving the cursor over the page.

Already I've changed something from the Story Arc.  I've chosen to have the dog be with David from the beginning and David is a man in his late 20's.  This will be the first of many deviations as the story makes its way to the written page. The story arc is a guide not a rigid course stifling creativity.
