It Was This, But Now it's That

The initial idea for Project Muffin Man was not historical steampunk fantasy, but contemporary paranormal fantasy with a military twist. 

Isn't it funny how things can change? 

It started off as this idea about a woman with certain powers and I simply called it "The Artifact Witch" story.  When I returned to the idea, I thought, "Wait a minute...  It would make it even better if..." 

Since the initial idea, it has evolved, not just in genre, but intention.  "The Aetheric Artifacts" will be (at least, in my mind) a 5-book series about this woman and her powers.  Of course, there is always room for more than 5 books, but the real triumph and conclusion will be if my main characters *ever* manage to get married.

At the rate they're going, things don't look too good for them in book 3.  ;)

Have you ever had an idea that started out one way, but then went another, whether by your choosing (such as with "Artifact Witch" --> "Aetheric Artifacts") or by whatever the muses evoked from you?

  1. I hardly ever know where my stories will end. (This time, it is different - I know where it will end and how, but don'T know how to get them there. Like pulling teeth from the back end.)
