Since 1993, I’ve been working on the same story, a long form sci-fi epic. I’d always wanted it to be a television series, but in a rare fit of sanity I’ve been making it as a novel instead. Each season has been broken into two books, with seven seasons total.
A few days ago, I finished the second book, and thus the first season. Just six more seasons and twelve more books to go! I feel a real sense of accomplishment having finished an entire season of a show all by my lonesome. I’ve been plotting it out for 23 years, but actually writing the episodes has obviously evolved the story in new and interesting ways. And writing the first season finale is one of those moments I’ve been imagining for years, if not decades. It’s amazing to finally get there.
And hopefully, one distant glorious day, all this will see the light of day!
