Pirouette Rewrite of Doom: Heh. I’ve just hit 46k, and I just began a rewrite of the scene I wrote yesterday to clear up a plot hole. I’m still not happy with it, but for now, it serves. I’m just over 1/3rd done, and I’ve projected my completion date to early 2008. Oh, and it might grow in size and scope. Whilst re-reading some of the first draft, I noticed that in my outline for the Rewrite, I’d forgotten about the antagonist’s people and their abilities. So, yesterday’s scene was to introduce one of them, Sarah, as a viewpoint character. She’s a dark witch and Alisia’s competitor in the dance troupe. They will be pitted against each other before the book ends.
Also, someone dies. Someone I didn’t anticipate.
Survivor: The Rewrite has officially begun! Say what? Yeah. Well, it’s more like I’ve been keeping the rewritten stuff together under the title Survivor Rewrite. I’m not really rewriting anything now. I still need to finish that damn first draft! I stumbled across some very interesting (and compelling) info on mind control that I might use towards the end of the book. It will give me what I need to happen and will be realistic, as this comes from true stuff. Stay tuned.
Requiem in Blue: On hiatis officially, but upon re-reading some old material, I discovered that I really would like to know what happens next….and figure out how to eliminate a few plot holes. Oh, and a new element presented itself to me yesterday.
Plot bunnies: List is still growing. I now have a murder mystery/thriller bunny about a secret society that maims corpses as part of their ritual and another war romance. I’m telling you, it’s unreal. It kills me that I can’t write faster. Oh well. At least I will never hunger for ideas, eh?
So that’s what’s shaking with da Weaver.
