This represents the other 50% of the scenes in the story. It’s a pretty beefy update, which makes sense considering the last one was just tweaks and revisions. This time, it’s all rich, meaty new content. Meat. Beef. Metaphor. Delicious.
So, that’s coa//001 in the can. And the good news is doing the final draft should be quicker than usual; this time around I did my reading passes immediately after writing each section, checking for word flow and authorial meaning. All that’s left is making adjustments based on the blog feedback (including what you post today!) and spelling fixes.
What do you think? It’s the first story in a new series, a first impression, and it’s damned important to make it a good one. I’d love to hear your take on City of Angles.
As for what’s next:
1. Start commissioning the official artwork for the series, for the gallery and ad banners and the like.
2. Start writing Stars Fall 06, the bonus story, and get that book released.
3. THEN start on coa//002.
