Beyond that, um...if you want to write, then write. You've got the world? Awesome! Got the characters? If so, awesome! Now start writing. Pick one. Don't care who. Put them in this world you've made, and start telling their story. If this is your very first novel, don't worry about it sucking. It's probably going to. Have fun with it. Bounce between a few characters. Try some weird stuff.

Over time, and the course of that first novel, you'll learn a ton, and develop a lot of useful skills *so long as you keep dedicated to it and don't stop writing*.

After you crank out that first one, move on to a second, and do that one better. And maybe a third novel after that, and do that one even better. Or maybe call it good after that first single work, and still be proud of what you accomplished. All up to you. But certainly don't bog yourself down in history and maps and notes and convince yourself it's too much to handle. It really isn't. (less)

Natalie Thanks for accepting my friend request! I can honestly say you are one of my favorite authors, and I can't wait to see what you have in store for the Half-Orcs series. P.S, I hope you don't intend on torturing Tarlak anymore; everything bad always happens to him...
