In Progress: The rewrite of Legacy of a Madman. This story is a beast of an epic, something that has been in the back of my mind ever since the first time I completed Final Fantasy VII. The ending held so much possibility, and the ache to give the story a proper "after" has stayed with me. I began writing it well before the movie and game sequels, so the setting remains to be the original VII 'verse. So there is no Deepground, no Angeal and Genesis, none of the (in my opinion) silly additions to the canon. Excluding Denzel, he's just too much of an adorable woobie. Given the scope of the story, there are a handful of OC's, but they are a reflection of the world setting; as lushly as I try to paint the world of VII and the cultures and history, I cannot leave out the people. I hope that each, however small, addition fits neatly into the fabric of VII.

5/19/2010 — I am working on Legacy when I have the inspiration to, but otherwise has suspended fanfiction writing to put more energy into finish novel projects.

4/15/2012 — Writing, writing, writing.

8/04/2013 — Life is thieving away all of my quiet writing time.

5/26/2014 — This project has cursed my systems to multiple crashes over the years. This was the most recent. At least I wised up and started backing up on flash drives.

Writing a novel is actually searching for victims.
As I write I keep looking for casualties.
The stories uncover the casualties.
—John Irving

Maybe this is why we read, and why in moments of darkness
we return to books: to find words for what we already know.
—Alberto Manguel

All painting, but also all literature, is merely a process
of going round and round something inexpressible.
—Anselm Kiefer

And sometimes remembering will lead to a story,
which makes it forever. That’s what stories are for.
Stories are for joining the past to the future. Stories
are for those late hours in the night when you can’t
remember how you got from where you were to where
you are. Stories are for eternity, when memory is erased,
when there is nothing to remember except the story.
—Tim O’Brien, The Things They Carried

The ending has to fit. The ending has to matter,
and make sense. I could care less about whether
it’s happy or sad or atomic. The ending is the place
where you go, "Aha. Of course. That’s right."
—Carrie Jones

We are, as a species, addicted to story.
Even when the body goes to sleep,
the mind stays up all night, telling itself stories.
—Jonathan Gottschall, The Storytelling Animal: How Stories Make Us Human

Writing is like hunting. There are brutally cold afternoons
with nothing in sight, only the wind and your breaking heart.
Then the moment when you bag something big.
The entire process is beyond intoxicating.
—Kate Braverman
