Well, this rewrite is going swimmingly. Slowly, but swimmingly. Last week, despite houseguest for an extended weekend, I managed to add just over 5500 words to the rewrite.
I’ve changed up an initial relationship a bit. It’s a little more adversarial and I think makes it a little more lively. It also (I hope) helps add to the tension and mystery surrounding this character. (Things which will be revealed over the course of the trilogy.)
I do think this draft is a lot smoother than the previous versions. I’ve moved things around, changed the order of reveals, and just generally improved the pacing of the world-building in this book. Mostly it’s in regards to the fae and their mythology.
How are your WiPs going?
