So if you’ve seen me around the internet at all this week you probably know that I received the edits for NAMELESS…and they weren’t as happy as I was hoping. They weren’t as cringe-worthy as they could have been either, so that’s good. A lot of the things that I knew weren’t right but couldn’t put my finger on were addressed, and now I know how to fix them. Of course it also pointed out quite a few plot holes which need to be looked into.
Now I’m kind of back to the drawing board. I’ve emailed some critters for advice and to bounce ideas, and made a Skype date with my best friend, who was the first person I let read the original Fie Eoin. She loves these characters and their story as much as I do, and knows it from the very beginning, and I’m confident that I’ll be able to work it out with her help.
In fact, I already have an idea brewing that might just work, assuming I can figure out all the details. It would still be essentially the same story. It would require a complete re-write, but at this point I should be able to re-write FE in my sleep. (Speaking of which, Tuesday night I had a dream that I was Kindra, only she was a vampire zombie from Diablo Three. Maybe it’s a sign, and THAT should be the new FE storyline ;P)
I’m also going to finish reading Story Engineering before I tackle any more writing projects.
I think this weekend will be a beach and book weekend for me. I hope all you lovely Aledans have a wonderful weekend as well! And Happy Summer!
