Here’s the second section of mid-April’s draft of chapter 2! One more section to go.
This is still the unvarnished, needs-to-be-revised material that I was showing you last time. This time around, I’ve got the second half of chapter 1 for you (the first half is right here). It comes complete with the bits that make me reach for the delete key, subsumed by the frantic urge to improve my own work. But it’s better than the first two times I wrote it!
I’m sharing this with you immediately after having gone through it with my mentor, knowing full well that there are many changes that I want to make. It’s a little painful to give it to you when I know that there’s so much more to be done. But I’ve got to share something, and if I wait for it to be perfect you’ll never see it. Real artists ship, right?
I’m also not giving you the entire chapter in one go, because that would be 4.5k. Here’s the first half, instead, coming immediately after the (also to-be-revised) prologue from before. Enjoy!
And we’re gonna need a montage.
Continuing our previous scene…
Here’s the following scene:
You’d be right to think that the date up there is not today’s date. But I don’t have a better way of defining what I’ll be sharing with you at the moment. Since I got home, I’ve been writing about 2000 words a day on my Miska project. What follows is part of what I wrote on, you guessed it, the 7th. It is first draft material, which means that I haven’t done more than look at it and think that it needs editing. Enjoy!
