WiP Wednesday 7/22/13-7/28/13

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?


  1. Rewrite is going ... quickly and slowly at the same time, which seems odd ... :) Glad you got more written!

    1. Not odd at all. I totally get it. I've actually gotten to copy and paste some stuff into the rewrite which is when it goes quick. Then it slows down a bit but then sometimes the writing of new goes faster and better than I could hope.
