So looked at my calendar and realized that OMG I NEED TO GET A POST DONE! So huge apologies for the very brief post this week but man, oh man, has it been busy. Small fires flaring up everywhere, the Prankster Duo turning my hair gray (not like it had far to go), and then just hours ago realizing that the third revision of chapter 2 for book 3 must be re-written.
And here’s why Chapter 2 is up for another rewrite and a small peek into a writer’s brain–
You have a rogue werewolf who’s chasing down his ex-girlfriend who’s dumped him and was out clubbing with friends before hooking up with a new guy. Furball takes exception to the rival and leaves him in a bloody heap, not breathing. Then proceeds to corner ex in a club. There they argue and she turns her back on him and walks away. Now, what’s more believable?
A. Furball gets mad, Xander confronts him and he proceeds to head to the alley and the rumble between him and Xander ensues. This means the humans are still in the dark about the existence of shifters.
B. Furball gets mad, Xander confronts him and he proceeds to lose control tearing apart the varied humans around him causing a panic which limits Xander’s ability to reach him. When she finally does, they rumble admist a screaming storm of body parts and panicking humans. Now Division gets called in, Warrick the Alpha gets called in and it’s one big cluster.
So which makes more exciting reading?
Yep, I’m with you..so back to the drawing board and we’ll start drafting Version B.
*SIGH* Even with an outline this book is being a stubborn ass from the get go. Just when I think I have it all figured out, my characters snicker, slap me across the face and dash away.
I love being a writer…
