So I’m about to finish off my New Realm book. I’m currently heavily dissatisfied with how it has turned out. Usually my first drafts need a lot of revision, but this time the story will need to nearly be entirely rewritten. Over the course of this draft, character backgrounds and personalities have changed, story elements were added or removed, and even the style of the book will shift wildly. To give you some idea, the most recent change I made was to start looking at other perspectives besides that of the main character. When the entire rest of the book is written from a single POV. Which means I’m going to have to rewrite the entire rest of the book to accommodate that change. Grg.
Oh well, at the very least I haven’t given up on it yet. It’ll take a long time to get done—the fact that it is much longer than either Wolfhound or Brellan doesn’t help—but the original story still interests me. Now I just need to finish the first draft and let my ideas stew a bit.
So how is everyone else’s writing going? Are you stuck in a mire, writing well like Joe, or somewhere in between? Have a great week, and I will see you around!
