Write Dammit

One of my outlines...

Involves Chambliss's backstory. Part of the problem is that I want to weave it into a present-day narrative as well.

I think I've figured out how to do this--I'll flip back and forth between backstory and present-day, and then bring it to a head where he has to decide if he's going to stay here or go back to the Fae realm. He doesn't particularly belong in either place. A woman who loves him is in Fae, but his adopted family is here.

I'm just not sure I have the chops to pull this off. Not only that, but it may very well be knocking on novella territory, which is a hard sell anywhere. But, you know what? I don't honestly care about "hard sell," I care about telling the story I want to tell.

So. It's an ambitious project. And I guess I'll find out if I can do it when I try.
