Project Atlas — Revealed

Time to unveil Project Atlas:

It is, at its core, my work of fiction, and my construction of an alternate reality, trying to view the lives of my characters and their interactions with their world. As with all works of fiction, it will also serve as my mouthpiece for my beliefs and my questions and my musings about the world, probably taking away some topics of my posts in the process. I’m trying my best to make my characters as full of life as possible, while still trying to have an interesting plot — which is tough considering this is going to be a large (endless, maybe!) work, and I have no experience with things of this scale. As such, the full intent of this project is to grow as a writer, from the designs of my characters to the conception of my plotlines.

The idea is to have weekly “episodes”, of which there will be 20-something until the “season” (or current plot arc) ends. Every episode will be published here at 6:00 P.M., EST, on Tuesdays.

There will be monologues. There will be politics. There will be love. There will be romance. There will be corruption, CEOs, and journalists. There will be the every-man “cube farm” worker, as well as a self-anointed philosopher. There will be debates. There will be death. There will be life. There will be a truth-seeker. Whatever there will be, I sincerely hope you all like it — as well as having some advice for me.

Prologue (teaser post!) will be next week, with the pilot “episode” coming on the 23rd.

    Oh Leap! I love it!
    Since I am not watching tv other than minutes here and there, I will come here instead. My new weekly show. 🙂

    Are you going to have a promotional campaign?
    A clickable book cover type thingy people can put on their site so other people can get to it? For the life of me, I can’t think of what you call it.

    A youtube video with the teaser? Plot?

    Can’t wait. 🙂

  2. OOOOOOOH – You very own soap-opera – love it, man! 😀

  3. Bead: no viral marketing campaign, or youtube videos; I want my writing to speak for itself. Thanks for your support.

    Will: How dare you equate my undertaking to a soap! It won’t be like that at all — it’ll operate on a bigger scale than that.

  4. I can’t wait! This is quite a project you’ve taken on, leap! CEOs! Death! A truth-seeker! and everything else you mentioned! I, for one, am looking forward to watching the episodes unfold, and your unfolding too, as a writer.
    I find you fascinating and brave, and I’m pleased to be one of your audience.

  5. but you didn’t answer the most important question: will there be sex??


  6. Thanks, Muse.

    And yes, sulz, there will be sex (romance = sex somewhere along the line, yes?).

  7. well, just have to check, in case your idea of romance is like a chaste romantic novel. 😛
