Topic

In this video, I talk about the status of the outline. I’m working on the three central storylines: the memory swap, Jason’s journey, and Drew’s journey. I talk about how I’m seeing Jason’s particular part of this story and how I want to use history to really deepen the connections. I also talk about planning a trilogy with each book having a satisfying ending.
