Summary 1 (Talk about the framework and structure of this book)
This is the first summary of the necromancer, and there will be about every volume in the future.
There are no second and third-level directories at the starting point, which makes people uncomfortable.
No more nonsense.
The framework of this book is as follows—
It is estimated that there will be a total of 4 to 5 volumes, and the number of words in each volume is between 800,000 and 1.2 million words.
Each part consists of about 4~6 volumes, and the number of words in each volume is around 200,000 words.
Each volume is composed of 3~6 sections, and the number of words in each section is variable, but between 40,000 and 120,000 words.
Take the first volume "Scar of the Dead" as an example, tentatively scheduled for 5 volumes, the first two volumes have been written, and the third volume will officially enter the main line.
That's right, it took 460,000 words to enter the main thread.
The specific structure is as follows—
【The first volume of Rolling Stone Town】
Section 1 The necromancer who loves to plant trees
Section 2 Matthew's living room
Section 3 Scourge Order
【The Second Volume of Travel Notes to the South】
A good show in the first quarter (Part 1)
Section 2 Soul of the Rainforest
Section 3 Balance Messenger
Question of the fourth quarter Worshiping the Dragon Cult
A good show in the fifth quarter (Part 2)
I believe everyone has noticed that the first chapter on the shelves is actually the beginning of the second volume.
Changing maps on the shelves is a taboo in online writing, and writing travel notes is even more of the taboos.
I didn't feel it before, and I almost couldn't hold back the swearing after I finished writing:
"Travel notes are really hard to write!"
The quality of the second volume can only be left to the readers to evaluate.
I am not particularly satisfied with it, and it may have something to do with it.
But one thing is worth affirming.
Then the degree of completion and details that I have been pursuing are all right.
The structure is very complete.
The story of the second volume.
From Beanna's letter to Lorraine's letter, the beginning and the end are a kind of echo.
In fact, Beanna's letter has hinted at the overall tone of this volume:
Before the journey, I am always full of longing, and when I go on the road, I am full of energy and enthusiasm, but it is only on the road that I realize that everything is different from what I imagined.
This is the charm of travel notes, and it is also a taboo of online writing—
That is, the journey is full of uncontrollability.
This sense of loss of control that you never know what will happen in the next second is not acceptable to mainstream readers.
This is also the reason why Gou Dao is so popular.
A sense of security is something that readers today especially need.
The other is the sense of anticipation.
These are things that travel notes are difficult to provide.
In addition, the pen and ink in this volume is mainly used to write a few supporting roles, especially Lorraine. The role of the protagonist is actually suppressed, so it is difficult to be particularly cool.
I took these issues into consideration when formulating the outline of the second volume.
They have the potential to be devastating to subscriptions (actually they do, but not as much).
But I am a tough guy.
I think there should be any elements in this book, so I will definitely write it.
The second volume in the plan should be travel notes, then it is travel notes.
The next third volume returns to the daily routine of planting trees and advances the main line, and it must not be ambiguous.
If I just write what the readers want to read, then it will become purely a genre text, with a strong main line, and I will write hard around him.
Based on the current situation of 24-hour follow-up order from the starting point, the results of writing with this strong main line are destined to be better than now.
But I still wanted the book to look a little more like a real book.
It seems that I am always obsessed with the details, they are often complained by some book friends as water, and even a few people leave a message to threaten me by giving up the subscription.
But my friend.
Those are the cornerstones of a world.
The name of this book is "The Necromancer Just Wants to Plant Trees".
Actually, it should be called "Necromancers Don't Just Want to Plant Trees".
What I want to present to you is an interesting and vast fantasy world.
It should not be a castle in the air.
Everyone in this world should have their own personality, have their own unique experiences, and have their own growth and changes.
I know it's hard to do.
I will try to find a balance between my creative feelings and the actual needs of the market.
I hope everyone can be more patient and tolerant.
thank you all.
Ask for the next monthly pass.
I'm about to be fucked.
