I am an active (although sometimes unwilling) participant in this world we're all familiar with. But this isn't the only world I live in. As a writer, I get to indulge my imagination and live in multiple universes. Right now, I'm fully engaged in four. Talk about a mixed-up head!
I'm working on two different projects in the Circeae system. This is the universe where The Crown's Call takes place. It's a vast system with three stars. You can check it out here or take a gander at the pic to the left. The two projects are set hundreds of years apart, so that's almost like two different worlds. We'll call it one and a half.
Also on my plate is a romance project I'm doing with a friend. It's set in modern-day Colorado (of which I should know), but in a small mountain town (of which I'm learning). While there are elements of the everyday, it's still a matter of world-building. (And by the way, it's awesome!)
There are other imagined worlds I dabble in here and there, but I've tried to hone my focus on these right now. I can only fit so many worlds In my brain. Limiting myself is helpful.
I also try to keep an eternal perspective. My beliefs, my faith draw me to dwell in that realm. I know that doesn't work for everyone, but it helps to keep me grounded and sane.
And now, we're back to reality, which is totally overrated. And because I figured in one and a half worlds with my Crown's Call work, we'll just tally in a half to equal four. (I know I'm completely bonkers, but I'm okay with that.)
