I want to create a separate LJ account for the story I'm working on. I'm such an LJwhore.

Yes, I could (and should) post in writerbrain, but I want to have a separate place for just that story.

Yes, this is a deliberate decision to step back from Shayara for a little - because I'm getting too mired in apocrypha, and I'm once again wondering if it's currently too inaccessible. I think that by stepping back I can get more of a look at it from the outside, and make sure I'm doing it right.

And I like this story. I really the themes I'm going to be working with here - giving myself permission to play in a different playground, without the three generations of continuity I work with in Shayara.

What makes a legend a legend? Where do fairy tales begin? What is the greatest power there is? Who are your heroes when they're at home?

What is strength?

Anyway. I'm enjoying myself. Obviously.
