Having decided that EpicuĂ©n is a major project I know need to shut down and do some percolating on where to take the story, and why. My current instincts are moving away from a speculative fiction bent and more towards a coming of age story. With Argentina in 1985 as a backdrop there is a lot to play with. The war, the end of the Junta, etc. But I don’t want to make that a firm decision right now.

I do know that the main character is called Odette. I’m not sure of her age yet, but I think maybe late teens is the ballpark.

Location is sorted. MC is on the way. Next step? Story, character motivation, character arc, character struggle…
