The Yasloughve Project

Synopsis: The Catastrophe was supposed to be big, but it wasn’t supposed to end the world — not with their technology, planning, and power. It was what they were told. It was what they wanted to believe. In some ways The Catastrophe destroyed everyone and The Uncertain End would destroy them all. This was the only known fact after the Night of Oblivion. Most were certain that there was nothing that could save humanity. Evester was not so sure, not that this is to say that he was much sure of anything these days. He thought his father was crazy, and now it seems that crazy may be the only thing that could save humanity. Only, he needed help. The Uncertain End was surely coming, but perhaps there was a way to survive even uncertainty.


Some notes for this series:

One, chapters may be named the same thing with multiple perspectives. I’m not really going for a word count and if something goes on for too long I may separate it into part one or part two or more. If I don’t like the formatting, I’ll change it (And back date it) but for now, this is the way it is and will be.

Two, the way I’m writing this is (in essence) the way I think Webnovels are supposed to be written? I.e. One chapter at a time. So instead of writing out the whole story and then doing edits, I’ll edit as I go, try to keep plot points in line and plot holes out. I wanted to try this medium of story telling even if I have no idea how good it will be.

This series, as projected by me will be 6 books, or what I will call “books,” long. I’m not sure how many words or chapters that is, but the story will end when I decide it will end. Unlike webnovels that I read online, this will not be a moment to moment story (most of the time) but rather snapshots of the days and specific moments as we move through the story. A glimpse into the lives, if you will.

With that said. Let us begin.

Things I Learned:

03/27/2020 – I was beginning my set up for book 4, because I’m about a book ahead of the current posting schedule, when I realized I messed up. Lol in order for this not to end in a mess, I have to add an entire book, which moves this from 6 proposed books to 7. I am livid with myself for being so silly to assume I could go from 100 – 90 – 70 days without having an issue, even though book 1 only took place over approximately 40 days. Not to mention that from B1-B2, we covered 75 days in 97 chapters. This means about 1.3 chapters per day. And I wanted do 30 days in 3 chapters? Lol three chapters to cover the amount of content that B1 covered? I couldn’t do that, so I had to add approximately 2 books worth of proposed chapters (because I already labeled all my chapters in a way, figuring out which days to touch). I only added one more book, however. This means that the new book 4, instead of been about 40-50 chapters like B1-B3, or B5-B7, it’s a massive 100+.

01/09/2021 – Honestly, this has been a lot harder than I had anticipated. Unlike writing a normal novel for me, this is much harder, because I’m posting as I’m going and thus instead of just finishing it in one shot, I’m taking time. As such it is really killing my flow. When I finish a book it is done in a few weeks (two or three) and then I just don’t do ANYTHING for months, before I realize I need to get the next book done so I have content to fall back on once my current content disappears. My goodness. In some ways this is keeping me from actually writing this consistently, and it it is harder. It is fascinating tho, and making me think in a different way than I have before. Its a very different writing skill, for sure.

01/16/2021 – I’ve gone ahead and added the final book names. I am nowhere done with them, but I figured put them up because I already know the names of them.

Notes on Inspiration:

Most of this comes from a dream I had when I was younger. I really don’t know what inspired that dream, but I do remember my notes and details that I wrote in my dream note book about the dream. Most of the names changed other than The Project name, Igilistal, and the trio (Zeydar, Heia, Evester). The plotting of the original dream is completely different than what ended up happening. IDK. The actual story here is much better than that dream, I think.

If I can think of the actual inspiration that I drew from for the dream, I’ll let you know.

Final Thoughts:

Zeydar: Both the easiest and the hardest character for me, I still don’t think I did as well as I probably could have with more time. Zeydar’s drug addiction I wrote based on part research, part experience of those I knew who were high functioning drug addicts. With the sort of drug I created with Dreams, there is no 1 to 1 exact way to relate his experience, added on top of that his magical capabilities. I did my best to balance the two but found myself struggling with him the most. Even now I do not regret making the choice, but I do know that there is so much work I could or can do to edit and fix the depiction.
