An insight into the writing process

Hi readers and hopefully some fans of the FfC series. I have been having a busy time being human in the real world, and wanted to update any readers on what I am doing ‘writing wise’. The titles below are going concerns, with several 200+ pages long at present. However, the latest (below), has taken precedence because of the current situation between 1st nation people and other australians in our country. Almost all my fiction works are about my people, as many degrading stereotypes of Australia’s 1st nation peeps abound yet in this day and age in our country and around our world – and – they are simply untrue. The majority of my stories are also set in Australia – my home and one of the most freely available and stunning lands in our world.

I currently have another 16 stories on the go. From Fethafoot warriors meeting aliens in the tale: “FfC V Aliens” [probably not the working title], through to ‘Shade Methaida’; an FfC warrior stuck in USA-Mexico modern-day, when a worldwide virus halts all international travel and collapses civilisation as we know it. FYI: many of my character’s names are anagrams of what their characters’ are and do. Others include: The Dept. of Truth, The Hitchhiker, Mama said, Man of Dreams, No choice, Perpetual motion, The dread Feel of a Man-thing, The Enforcer, The Quiet Billionaire, The Watcher & Wurth and the dog.

 

To give some you idea of how my mind works when writing a story, the below are notes from when I began the story I am currently writing.
