So after a few days of tweaking, I’m finally adding words to the story again. It feels great. Once the first few chapters were sorted out, everything started flowing again. All the chunks I took out of the first section will show up later on in the manuscript, so in a way I’m ahead of the game. I also gained a lot of insight into where my characters are going in this book by writing what was basically a synopsis crammed into the first few chapters.
One aspect of the story is how Glynis’s actions have a rippling effect on her world. For so long she felt powerless, and now the choices she makes don’t only affect her, but others around her. The book starts off with the repercussions of one of her choices.
In other words, we’re already neck deep in it!
