I started off trying to sketch out something with a young protagonist who wanted to stay in Astrea. She wasn't interesting, but her mentor caught my attention, and making her the center of the story worked in a gritty way that makes Endhaven so fun to write.

I figure 18-24 months to write this novel. I need to develop oodles and oodles, along with cutting oodles and oodles.
