Another week, another Authors Answer. But before I get to that, I’m quite excited to announce that I’ve finally made a start on writing the origin story of my new hero, Ailric. He’s been lounging around in my head for a while now, but so far he’s been too lazy to come out. But on Sunday morning I was dozing in bed, and for whatever reason the opening sentence started to form, and I was quite happy with it. So it had to come out, and I’ve actually written about a full page since then! This is quite an achievement at the moment, because the muse has not been very active lately.
