41 chapters. That's what Sameness will have.
Took me a week to finish the fricking outline. But I really love this story and where it's going. I really, really hope that this story wins something in the Wattys.
As you may have noticed, if you're reading it, this book is different than the rest in its structure. This character even feels different to me, and that's good. It's the kind of character I need to write about. And I know there are questions just building, and you get hints here and there about their answers.
I hope you like the journey this story takes you on, because the messages are weaved within it. This is one of those books where I hope you take the lesson to heart, and you remember it because it moves you.
Also, I want to do something cool. I want everyone who has ever felt excluded and negatively different to send in something sharing their story, and I want that story to help you, and someone else, to overcome those feelings, whether it's artwork or poems or songs or stories. Show me your individuality and don't be afraid of it. Because different is beautiful if only you let it be beautiful.
There is no deadline.
There are no rules (except keep it G - PG-13)
I will feature each and every one of them in this book.
Hopefully you will all participate. I look forward to seeing your entries.
In other news, I'm working on getting The Unnamed and The Elite into Amazon and whatnot, so keep your eyes peeled!
