Writing Ideas – New Novel, part 270, more Culture Style Development, How to Develop Storyline

31 March 2015, Writing Ideas – New Novel, part 270, more Culture Style Development, How to Develop Storyline

Announcement:  Ancient Light is delayed due to the economy.  You can read mor about it at http://www.ancientlight.com.  Ancient Light includes the second edition of Aegypt plus Sister of Light and Sister of Darkness.  I’ll keep you updated.

Introduction: I wrote the novel Aksinya: Enchantment and the Daemon. This was my 21st novel and through this blog, I gave you the entire novel in installments that included commentary on the writing. In the commentary, in addition to other general information on writing, I explained, how the novel was constructed, the metaphors and symbols in it, the writing techniques and tricks I used, and the way I built the scenes. You can look back through this blog and read the entire novel beginning with http://www.pilotlion.blogspot.com/2010/10/new-novel-part-3-girl-and-demon.html.

I’m using this novel as an example of how I produce, market, and eventually (we hope) get a novel published. I’ll keep you informed along the way.

Today’s Blog: To see the steps in the publication process, visit my writing website http://www.ldalford.com/ and select “production schedule,” you will be sent to http://www.sisteroflight.com/.

The four plus one basic rules I employ when writing:

1. Don’t confuse your readers.
2. Entertain your readers.
3. Ground your readers in the writing.
4. Don’t show (or tell) everything.
5. Immerse yourself in the world of your writing.

All novels have five discrete parts:
1.  The initial scene (the beginning)
2.  The rising action
3.  The climax
4.  The falling action
5.  The dénouement

The theme statement of my 25th novel, working title, Escape, is this: a girl in a fascist island nation will do anything to escape–a young cargo shuttle pilot not following the rules crashes on the island.

This theme statement lends itself well to each part of the development of a novel.  Note, there is a setting, an initial scene, protagonist, protagonist’s helper, antagonist, and the climax is obvious.  Let’s talk about each.

On the colony world of the novel, working title, Escape, there are numerous continents and at least one large island.  The large island is a fascist nation that is based in pure extrapolated communism.  This nation is called Freedom.  Freedom has three groups of people on it: the Party Members, the citizens, and the armed citizens.

Culture is a description and a revelation.  I’ve written before that a novel is all about the revelation of the protagonist and the protagonist’s helper.  I have not explained that a novel can be and should be about the revelation of a culture.  This is the kind of novel I write and all my novels are about the revelation of culture(s).

This new novel, Escape, is an obvious example.  The culture is a fabrication.  It is based in past human cultures, but it is an extrapolation.  I can’t just describe the culture at the beginning of the novel–I mean, I guess I could, but that would be tedious, technical, and boring.  I’ve written before that exploration and revelation novels are powerful means to entertain–a novel with a unique culture that must be revealed has immediate entertainment value.

The author shouldn’t tell (describe) anything that isn’t immediately visible–the author should show everything about the culture as the protagonist and/or protagonist’s helper experience and live in the culture.  Escape is an especially good example because the reader can live the culture of Freedom through the protagonist and explore it’s uniqueness through the eyes of the protagonist’s helper, who is just experiencing the culture.  These are the seeds of entertainment in the revelation of the culture.

More tomorrow.

Writing Ideas – New Novel, part 269, Culture Style Development, How to Develop Storyline

30 March 2015, Writing Ideas – New Novel, part 269, Culture Style Development, How to Develop Storyline

Announcement:  Ancient Light is in publication, and you can buy it at almost any internet book sellers or order it from any brick and mortar bookstore.  You can read about it at http://www.ancientlight.com.  Ancient Light includes the second edition of Aegypt plus Sister of Light and Sister of Darkness.  I’ll keep you updated.

Introduction: I wrote the novel Aksinya: Enchantment and the Daemon. This was my 21st novel and through this blog, I gave you the entire novel in installments that included commentary on the writing. In the commentary, in addition to other general information on writing, I explained, how the novel was constructed, the metaphors and symbols in it, the writing techniques and tricks I used, and the way I built the scenes.

All novels have five discrete parts:
1.  The initial scene (the beginning)
2.  The rising action
3.  The climax
4.  The falling action
5.  The dénouement

The theme statement of my 25th novel, working title, Escape, is this: a girl in a fascist island nation will do anything to escape–a young cargo shuttle pilot not following the rules crashes on the island.

This theme statement lends itself well to each part of the development of a novel.  Note, there is a setting, an initial scene, protagonist, protagonist’s helper, antagonist, and the climax is obvious.  Let’s talk about each.

On the colony world of the novel, working title, Escape, there are numerous continents and at least one large island.  The large island is a fascist nation that is based in pure extrapolated communism.  This nation is called Freedom.  Freedom has three groups of people on it: the Party Members, the citizens, and the armed citizens.

My style is culture and language comparisons in novels.  Escape doesn’t give any real scope for language differences–in it, I assume everyone speaks the same language and that there are few differences in dialect or accents.  This is reasonable because all the people on the planet in Escape came there as colonists from Earth.  The important focus of the work is about culture.

Culture is one of the central ideas in all of my writing.  For example, in Centurion I explore the differences between Roman, Greek, and Jewish cultures and societies in the first Century.  In Aegypt, I depict the cultures of the Bedouin, Tunisians, French, and French Foreign Legion.  In The Second Mission, the ancient Greek culture is the subject of the novel.  I mentioned many times before that the Anglo-Saxon culture was the model for my Honor novels–The Chronicles of the Dragon and the Fox.  To me, culture is one of the most powerful and important ideas an author can depict.  Here the importance of this idea.

An author’s setting is not just a description of the physical world, the society, or the way of life of the characters–the setting is always the culture.  If the culture is that of the modern Western world–the author’s job is easy.  If the culture is ancient, foreign, or otherwise unique, the author’s job becomes the revelation of the culture.  I consider the revelation of cultures as part of my “style” as a writer.  This is what I want my novels to be known for–that they accurately and candidly depict other cultures in a way that people can appreciate and enjoy the differences and nuances of them.

Writing Ideas – New Novel, part 268, more Style Development, How to Develop Storyline

This theme statement lends itself well to each part of the development of a novel.  Note, there is a setting, an initial scene, protagonist, protagonist’s helper, antagonist, and the climax is obvious.  Let’s talk about each.

More small digression:  I’m now on a demo tour in the AT-6 to Paraguay.  I’m writing from Ecuador.

On the colony world of the novel, working title, Escape, there are numerous continents and at least one large island.  The large island is a fascist nation that is based in pure extrapolated communism.  This nation is called Freedom.  Freedom has three groups of people on it: the Party Members, the citizens, and the armed citizens.

I like to use redemptive themes.  I also like to use love in marriage as a subtheme.  I generally emphasize languages and cultures in my novels, and in many of my novels, I have spiritual beings.  I’d lie to look at each of these as a component of an author’s style and as my style.

Authors themes are related to their styles.  In many cases, their styles (of writing) are based on a type of theme.  For example, Stephen King uses a suspense/horror theme that is also his style as an author.  It would be hard to imagine a Stephen King novel that was not based in a suspense/horror theme.  Likewise, I use redemptive themes in my writing.  I’ve mentioned that a redemptive theme is one where the protagonist is rescued out of a terrible life or has a change of life and heart based on their beliefs or ideas.  For example, in the new novel I’m writing, Escape, the protagonist is redeemed from her horrible life under a fascist tyranny.

In this novel, Escape, I don’t have any spiritual beings, and I don’t emphasize languages, but I do emphasize cultural differences (that is one aspect of my style).  I also have a subtheme based on love, sex, and marriage.  In this novel, this is related to the culture of the protagonist and the culture of the protagonist’s helper.  The subtheme allows me to show the cultural differences and brings these ideas to the fore.  It also allows me to have my characters recognize something important about themselves and each other.  I mentioned before, the citizens of Freedom don’t know anything about love–they have no word for it.  They understand reproduction and sex, but have no concept of love, marriage, or family.  You can see the power I can use in cultural comparisons here.

More tomorrow.

I wrote that my theme style is redemptive with spiritual dimensions.  I don’t want you to be confused about what this means.  A redemptive theme simply means the protagonist has a change of heart in some way.  Classically, they could come out of an evil life or profession.  Inspirationally and classically, they could change their lives for the better.  In Escape, I intend for the protagonist to have a complete change of life.  She will learn all the things in life she is missing as a citizen of Freedom.  She will confront her own life and ideas and realize where they are wrong.  She will learn about love (real love) and about friendship.  Her redemption will be both physical and intellectual (also spiritual, if you like).

My protagonist’s helper will go through a similar change.  He has not been in love before.  He has not considered many of the ideas he must confront with the protagonist.  He has been responsible for people and objects, but not responsible for the mind and life of another person.  His learning and redemption will also propel the novel, because he should also escape (physical redemption) and learn to love (intellectual redemption).  There is much in this concept of redemption.

Writing Ideas – New Novel, part 266, Freedom Development, How to Develop Storyline

27 March 2015, Writing Ideas – New Novel, part 266, Freedom Development, How to Develop Storyline

Announcement:  Ancient Light is in publication, and you can buy it at almost any internet book sellers or order it from any brick and mortar bookstore.  You can read about it at http://www.ancientlight.com.  Ancient Light includes the second edition of Aegypt plus Sister of Light and Sister of Darkness.  I’ll keep you updated.

Introduction: I wrote the novel Aksinya: Enchantment and the Daemon. This was my 21st novel and through this blog, I gave you the entire novel in installments that included commentary on the writing. In the commentary, in addition to other general information on writing, I explained, how the novel was constructed, the metaphors and symbols in it, the writing techniques and tricks I used, and the way I built the scenes.

I am working on this new novel but not as quickly as I would like.  I’m kind of worn out from my work.  Flying long distances twice a day and conducting demos with pilots who are not qualified in the aircraft can be trying.  We were lucky that the aviators were very experienced and professional and that made the mission both successful and easier.

Right now, I’m catching up with my blogs and rereading my novel Valeska.  This is a fun novel–I hope it is published soon–I think many would enjoy it very much.

As I mentioned, in this blog, I’m writing about Freedom as a setting and generally about the characters in the novel.  The purpose is to give you a good idea about how to go about designing, starting, and writing a novel.  This novel has been both easier and harder than the last, Lilly, because this novel has an obvious climax and setting.  The climax for Lilly was not obvious at all.  I wrote a whole dissertation on how to develop a climax based on my experiences with that novel.  This was very helpful to me, and helped me determine the climax of that novel–it was actually more obvious than I imagined.  The problem was determining exactly what it was from the theme.

Escape, on the other hand, has an obvious climax, the problem is building to it properly.  As I mentioned, the climax of Escape is the escape.  The main characters will either succeed, that is a comedy, or they will fail miserably, that is a tragedy.  I’m aiming for a comedy–that is my style.  I’m writing about an authors style on one of my other blogs.  My style is for a redemptive theme usually with spiritual beings involved.  I have expanded my style with this new novel.  I want it to have a redemptive theme of spiritual dimensions, but with no spiritual beings–it is science fiction, after all.

Indeed, the extrapolation of a socialist or a communist nation is that the citizens are treated like chattel.  Their value is only the worth they bring to the state–they have no inherent value and no inherent worth.

In Freedom, this value is tracked numerically for each citizen.  I mentioned before, when the value of a citizen becomes less than the value of his organs and fluids, he is harvested.  Many are harvested in the womb or as children.  Of course, Freedom has a strong eugenics program.  All fascist socialist and communist regimes dream of a eugenics program.  They want to breed the best and brightest citizens.  All fascist socialist and communist regimes want to control family constituents and relationships.

In freedom, the children are taken immediately from the mother and father to ensure a perfect upbringing by the state.  The state is the best parent for the children.  When the child’s value, including potential becomes less than their organs, the child is harvested.  Sometimes, the child of a Party Member needs an organ–one of the children citizens loses their life–for of course, the unloved child of a citizen can never be worth the life of a beloved Party Member’s child.  Medicine and medical procedures are made to sustain the life of the Party Members and not the citizens.  This is the medical environment of Freedom.

More small digression:  I’m now on a demo tour in the AT-6 to Paraguay.  I’m writing from Paraguay.

On the colony world of the novel, working title, Escape, there are numerous continents and at least one large island.  The large island is a fascist nation that is based in pure extrapolated communism.  This nation is called Freedom.  Freedom has three groups of people on it: the Party Members, the citizens, and the armed citizens.

I mentioned art as one of the focuses of the fascist nation of Freedom.  Art comes into play because the Party seeks entertainment as a function of their rule.  Therefore, the arts of the “Development” Center are: colors and scents, movies and programs, music, books and photography.  This should seem odd to you if you imagine the purpose of a development center in a market based society.  Shouldn’t a development center be focused on technology?  Not on Freedom.  Freedom is a nation without any competition.  It doesn’t worry about military technology or military competition.  It only has to keep its citizens occupied and under control.

The Freedom Party is completely interested in entertainment and self fulfilment.  There is no consideration of the citizens.  There is no need to invent new technology except to help the party.  The main technology investment by the Party is for medical intervention and longevity.  They accomplish this through transplants and the use of human endocrine fluids and compounds.

The technology of Freedom is all about, first, maintaining the lives of the Party Members.  To do that, let’s assume a technological extrapolation based on preventing death.  In Freedom, with lots of citizens and few Party Members, there is an opportunity to experiment with human subjects and human tissues outside of any human mores or ethics.  The Freedom Party has discovered how to keep their Party Members alive with nearly perfect organ transplants and the use of other human hormones and fluids.  Any of this would be considered illegal anywhere else.  Freedom has people and lives to spare.  When the value of a citizen is less than their organs, snip snap, the organs are harvested and stored or used to maintain the life of a Party Member.

The Party Members of freedom have discovered was to use hormones and other human tissues and fluids to tone and reduce the effects of aging.  The citizens provide all of the required ingredients.
