Steve, the porn magnate with an island (Writing journal, November 4, 2012)

Well, I got started yesterday. I’m putting this together as I go—no outline—not really any prep at all other than a few notes and a few other things floating around in my head. I’ve got just 1041 words so far, and I need to have 6666 by the end of today to be on target.

It’s good to have some words down, though. It’s very sloppy so far—I’m going back and forth between sections, writing parts as I think of them. No real care to tense. There’s going to be a lot of rework, but for now I just want to focus on that 50,000 word goal.

I had names come to me fairly easily last night. The island owner is Steve Vanderbright and the founder prisoner is Carl Williamson. Both subject to change, of course, but that’s what I’m going with for now. Steve made his money in porn—not sure why that came to me, but it did and so far it seems to be working—he originally bought the island to escape government restrictions on his adult business. He’s a good guy and a great businessman.
