The new year has been great until recently because I have to deal with a huge inconveiance. For the most part with going back to work and moving back to my place, I’ve been busy and I haven’t had the time to post on this blog.
However, I will say that I’ve taken up my pen and paper again. It’s not like I officially put it down, I don’t think I could ever do that, I just decided to take the holidays off from writing so I could spend time with my family that I hadn’t seen for almost a year.
The good news is that I took a look at Phantom Blade again and I believe I’m ready to start rewriting it. The beginning of the book is, in a sense, perfect. I took a look at the first chapter and it got all the information I wanted to come across clearly. At least in my head, it seems clear. Those first three or four chapters are my introduction to the world mixed in with the inciting moment. It is everything after that, I believe, that needs a lot of refinement.
Going into NaNoWriMo I knew how the story was going to start but the rest not so much. So for now, I’ll leave the beginning as it is, for now. I just added a few minor changes and clarification on some things. I definitely added more descriptions.
This will be a slow project just because I have basically rewrite entire scenes and perhaps even characters. However, the most important thing that I have to do is take a look at the plot for Phantom Blade to make sure that I know where this rewrite is going to go.
That’s it for now. I’ll be keeping you guys posted.
