How long have you been working on your current story?:

- The villain was originally a generic Evil Overlord called "Thanatos," but I knew that was cheesy to stay. He became a cloth-themed wizard named Arabesque, and eventually ended up inspiring a recurring theme in the Suenyaverse stories: Heart Is an Awesome Power, and general aversion of Superpower Stereotypes.
- Originally, The Lancer, Mariselle, was supposed to primarily be The Beastmaster. She instead became The Medic, and the beastmaster aspects shifted to heroine Cora.
- Two characters, Boysenberry and Jasper, completely shifted roles. Originally, Boysenberry was Cora's closest friend and endlessly loyal Fairy Companion, as well as her advisor, while Prince Jasper was a clingy, useless hanger-on whose Inferiority Superiority Complex eventually lead to him becoming a rebellious Sour Supporter who almost completely turns on the heroine before the end. In the final story, Boysenberry became the angry grudge-holding bastard and Jasper became a sweetly Adorkable White Prince. Still works, though, because he became a male inversion of many Princess Tropes.
- Lit's Green Earth: Concieved of in early 2010, as an indirect sequel to Always a Hero. But since I wasn't done with Always a Hero, well, I couldn't start it. I began it in January 2011, and finished it in mid-2011 due to spotty writing dedication. So about 6 months in writing. Unlike Always a Hero, I planned it more closely from the beginning, but it did undergo one main change:
- In the original conceptualization of the story, the primary focus of the story was going to be on the heroine Angeline's godawful relationship with her parents, and their manipulation of her. The book's "curse" subplot was intended to stay in the background for most of the book until mushrooming at the end. Like with Boyse and Jasper's characters, though, that flip-flopped—the book became focused on the curse, with Angeline's Character Development and Abusive Parents on the back burner until exploding at the end.
- Wordkeepers: Originally concieved of as "TK Academy" way back in 2003. In 2004, though, it changed into its current form. Me and my buddy were inspired to writing a Wizarding School story due to seeing the Halloweentown movies on TV, and I started right about there, in October 2004. I completed the first draft of the first novel in 2006, June-ish. The first draft was awful. Most of my friends loved it. I'm planning on rebooting it and doing it all over again starting in probably December? After Na No this year, anyway.
