It hasn’t been a whole year since I posted, has it? I guess I’m not winning over too many new fans at this rate.
During the summer, I have no classes and I have more time to think and write – if I don’t find other less productive ways to spend my time. This past summer I was laid up for a few weeks with a bad back. That should have been my excuse to do even more writing, but alas… I failed.
I did, however, get up enough steam to rewrite… and I do mean rewrite, not just edit… the first half of Chapter 1. I didn’t manage to get Emily and Alistair to the train station yet, but I got them out of the house!
I looked at all the helpful criticism I got on Scribophile and really attacked the story. The result is a vast improvement. I’ve posted the new chapter here. The old one is nothing but scrambled bits floating randomly around my hard drive.
New Year’s resolution? I don’t believe in them. But I will try to post more often, even if I don’t think I have anything much to say. I can always find something to bitch about over on The Grumpy Curmudgeon.
