So, this week we… sort of start chapter //022.
Technically speaking I started it twice, then went “No, that’s rubbish” and tossed what I’d written. It’s been kind of a crazy week for me due to a dozen-plus relatives swarming my hometown as well as dayjob stuff as well as playing some WildStar. Time spent on false starts basically equaled all the time I had available to me, meaning I couldn’t properly start //022 on schedule.
To make up for this, and to keep you entertained, I’m actually posting the rejected versions of //022’s intro. This includes writer’s commentary about my thought process behind the scenes, why they were rejected, how I tried to fix things, etc. Good for aspiring writers out there or folks just curious about how these stories come together. Minor spoilers for an event that kicks off the chapter, bewarn’d.
Also, check back here on MONDAY for a bonus blog post. I’m taking part in a writer’s tour where I’ll continue to discuss my process, as well as link to other writing blogs you may want to check out!
See you back here June 14th for the real //022.
