Turning to the Dark Side – Again

In order to know what’s going to happen in DW3, I have to know what the bad guys are up to. So here comes the process of getting into the bad guys’ heads. I always despise this part of the process; I feel icky afterwards, like I need a shower.

Does anyone else have a problem with getting inside the minds of their bad guys and having to think like they do?

Not Writing but Working!

I realized I have to completely redo the timeline of the back story for the second book in the Gifts of the Elders’ series – the sequel to Sword’s Edge. So I’m doing that. Which means even though I’m not getting any word count done for the second book, I am working on it!

To quote Fred Kwan, “Just FYI.”

Danger: Clueless Writer at Work

Developing the one subplot in the sequel to Sword’s Edge has turned catastrophic to my overall plot arc for the novel. I see no way to keep the one character from doing what he’s going to do. Totally rewrite from about 30k onward. At this point, I have no idea where this book is headed.
