Yesterday was all about OLD-FASHIONED DETECTIVE WORK. I spent the entire day revising the manuscript. In the evening, I started putting the changes in, and got through the first fifteen chapters. I have six more chapters to do, and the revisions in the last three are pretty extensive. I had to tie up the loose ends, decide what to leave untied for the future without making it unsatisfying for this story, and fix logistical lapses.

I also wrote the synopsis.

I have two shows today, which means a fourteen hour day. I’m going to keep working on OFDW until I have to leave for the train, but I doubt I can get this draft done. I hope to finish it tomorrow, and then I’ll look it over one last time before hitting “send”.

It’s double the length of HEX BREAKER, and much more complex, both in plot and character. I think it explains some interesting tidbits about both Jain and Wyatt’s pasts, introduces some interesting characters, and sets up several directions for further stories, without making it impossible to follow without HEX BREAKER, or leaving too much dangling. It ends on a bit of a cliff hanger, but it’s also a bit of a humorous ending.

So, hopefully, all this stuff I’m trying works. We’ll see what the publisher says, right?

Back to the page and off to the show. That’s my day today.
