For starters, I was with Viggo Mortensen... so... there's that.
Also, there was some kind of threat. I can't remember what it was, but it was pretty dire. Despite this, I decided to buy land, and I converted it into an underground village thingy. Each building was lined with lead, in case of nuclear threat... or something.
Each underground "home" pod was connected by a small tunnel, and there were several green houses which had timed lights to simulate actual sunshine and day-night cycles. It was a great underground world. Good thing too, because surface side was a disaster - dead and dark. It wasn't like that before I bought the land. Just after I miraculously built this world underground.
The dream didn't really have a point. I was heading up to the surface in a spacesuit thingy, and then my alarm went off. No more dream.
I'm not sure why I'm telling you this, except that I remembered it, and it was weird and interesting to me.
But the real news is this: I'm done! I've finished the rough draft of Outcast last week. I went through and edited it on Friday (and finished up the little bit left on Saturday, since I had to be near work anyway, and I had the time). I'm so thrilled to be done with this manuscript.
As I was going through the manuscript, I found that I didn't hate it as much as I thought I would. Actually, I quite liked it. I think it still needs a hell of a lot of work, but I'm happy to now be filing it away as done for now, and work on the next manuscript, the second book in the Avalon series. This one's a lot of fun. I'm pulling hard from Celtic myth in this one, and turning it into a sort of mythic punk story. It's really fun, and I'm enjoying much more than the Great Man series. The Great Man runs deeper in my soul, however. Le sigh.
Right, I have to get started on book two of the Avalon series. I still don't have a title for the first book, or this one, to be honest, but I'm excited to get started. I've had the first chapter stuck in my head for the past two years, and I need to get this stuff written down.
So, I'm off. Hope you all had a good weekend.
