Since yesterday was Thanksgiving in the US, I took the day off to be with my family. Therefore, this update is for Wednesday (since I do these the day after).
Yes, still stuck in the first chapter, but it’s okay. All the little bits and pieces are coming together. Glynis’s voice is growing stronger and stronger, and in my mind’s eyes the world is pretty much crystal clear. I’m trying to tread very carefully between making sure the beginning is dynamic and not jumping the gun when it comes to certain plot points. By the time I finished writing for the day, I realized I had done just that. But it’s an easy tweak and I’m not too worried. I’ll fix it tonight and keep going.
One of the themes of The Lament of the Vampire Bride is that your sins will revisit you. This immediately happens in the first chapter, though those involved don’t realize it quite yet.
We’re in for one helluva ride.
