I was at work, minding my own business, keeping an eye on the kid I’m there for, and out of nowhere came a wandering plot bunny.
And not just any wandering plot bunny. Oh, no. Not this plot bunny. This plot bunny is one that I really did not want to see.
It’s a prequel to the Academy of the Accord series. You know, the stand alone novel that is now a 13 book series that is making me tear my hair out. Yeah.
This one is set way in the past, though, so won’t involve any of the current characters. It follows the first wizard and Warder pair – starting out from the Fortress after the Wizard Wars ended.
Or maybe they left the Fortress to go to Barize to end the Wizard Wars. I’ll have to double check the history on that, to see exactly when the wizards were imprisoned in the tower at the Fortress. (Because, you know, I don’t have enough stuff to check for continuity and canon.)
Anyhow, I am not outlining that Academy of the Accord prequel. Just because I’m writing down some notes and trying to come up with names doesn’t mean I’m outlining it or planning to ever actually write it. Right?
Yeah, who am I kidding?
Certainly not me.
Or the plot bunny.
In fact, those two scenarios up there? Yeah, they’ve been blown out of the water by another one, and my notes are starting to look suspiciously like one of my outlines.
And, you know, it’s just over a month until NaNoWriMo.
