That has been the case for a number of things in the past.
As this series is quite easily the most elaborate thing my brain has concocted, creating this bible was kind of necessary. I also want, when I have time, to create a book of illustrations for all my scenes, characters and events. First, though, I plan on taking an oil painting class or three. Starting in January, when my financial situation levels out a little bit and I can afford the materials necessary.
I also have to create a bunch of maps, so I can keep the locations straight, but that will happen after I send in my submission, which will happen as soon as I'm certain that I can send in the manuscript without hesitation if it is asked for. Fingers crossed, but let's keep our expectations reasonable.
On the agenda today, writing a cover letter, reworking my synopsis, and then combing through the manuscript to make sure every scene has the right ambience, and conveys the correct mood. That achieved, I will be sending the submission off.
I've probably over-thought literally everything about this, but I really, really want this one to work out for me.
Wish me luck!
I have to get to work now. Have a good day.
