|09:37 pm - Making Myself Nervous|
There is a "Dreams" entry I'd like you to take a look at if you want.
I have most of the first chapter/prologue written. Tonight, I've been doing some research. I need to decide about what year it takes place. In looking at various maps of Ireland, I've decided mid-400s would be good.
That's when Christianity started making its way into Ireland. That may not be a key point in the story, but it does play a part in that the main character ("Phillip") has a prejudice against those of the "new religion."
I've also almost decided what area of Ireland, though that's not completely set yet. I need to find a topographic map to see what the landscape around that area is. If it's not what I want it to be, it'll have to be in a different area.
I'm going to do the research as I go. Otherwise, I'll get bogged down in the research and never get the thing written.
I'm loving it so I don't want that to happen. But, I have to admit, I'm making myself nervous.
I haven't written much from a male POV. And what I have has been done in quite short spurts. (Hmmm... quite punny considering some things that will be coming up in the storyline. ;))
Any females out there who have written from a male POV? How did it go for you? Was it harder/easier than writing from a female POV?
