So many ideas so little time

Having decided that I am going to write my book, I have found my head full of ideas.  It is hard to get my head to settle down and let me work on just one idea at a time.  I’ve found myself working on multiple ideas, basically just taking the time to write an idea down as it comes to me and hopping that when I get back to it, I will remember what I was thinking.  Come on brain lets work together here and get one thing done before starting on the next.

How to train your dragon

I have just gotten Dragon naturally Speaking 11.0 for my computer.  I know that 11.5 is available but it was twice as much so I decided to save money and buy the older version.  After I installed in on my computer it went on line to check for updates and proceeded to download and install 11.5.  Glad I saved the money and got the older version.

I have gone through the training program and started to use it, though I am not using it right now as I don’t have the mic plugged in.  But though there are things we fight about I love it.  It is much faster and easier than using my keyboard.  One problem I have found is that my computer is old and needs to be updated.  Oh well I will just have to live with it.

What’s in a name?

I am working on my first book which is in reality a series of books centered around one main Elf and a hand full of other characters. The main character is Ferguson (I know that is not a normal Elven name but that is explained in the story.) I had originally planned to call the series Ferguson and was starting book one centered around him, but as I looked more deeply at things, there was just too much unexplained in his story. So after much thought I decided to take a step back and write a preguel to the series. This book 0 puts everything in place for Ferguson to start his life’s mission.

Ferguson is an Elven Lord a member of the Elven Counsel. Each member of the counsel is also an Elven Lord the books deal with the counsel as well as the relationship between the Elven race and the other races that dwell on Kavilion. Though Ferguson is the central point throughout the overall story, he is not the main character in all of the books, so naming the series Ferguson is in someways misleading. My thoughts are to either name it Kavilion (after the world) or Elven Lords (which may also be misleading as the they play a major part of the story line, they are only a part of it.)
