I'm happy to say I've actually made some progress on "City of Dis", follow-up to the short story "Dis", which I released in electronic version near the end of May.
I'm still not feeling quite well enough for fiction writing most days, but I did get together with my diabolical plotting buddy last night. It had been my intention to get some help from him on researching The Ars Goetia for the story, but the evening turned into a full-fledged plotting session that radically redefined one character and changed my direction rather drastically. It also means the opening I had written will have to be scrapped, but it's a small price to pay to incorporate the ideas we came up with last night.
As I've mentioned before, "City of Dis" will follow Colbie Moss into the notorious T housing project as she tries to recover a magical blade entrusted to her by a Norse god. She's still concerned with keeping her loss of the blade a secret from her mentor, though it's becoming clear that the Norse fate of the past, Urd, is already watching the events. But is she just watching?
And when it comes down to a deal with a demon or a deal with the devil, which will Colbie choose? Especially since she used to be married to one of them.
This should be a lot of fun.
Happy Friday, everyone.
