write here write now || three || words with rhapsody
I have less than a thousand words less and I’m officially half way through editing!! Whoop!! I’m so damn excited omg.
I have noticed quite a few things that I didn’t notice when I first wrote it, and it made me realise just how weeiiird this book is. Weird in a good way though. I think. I have officially fixed the pacing of the first half, along with one of my main characters that felt way too flat and I needed to round out. My story is broken into three parts; Autumn, Winter, Spring and Summer. Autumn, as I first noticed during this round of edits, is HALF the book. A full chunk of it is just Autumn. And not even all of Autumn, only about three weeks of it. The pacing isn’t a problem anymore, but not much happens in the first part. I read through it and everything I have written is vital to the plot, otherwise I’ve taken it out, however I try and think about what happens and its not much. At all. Small tiny plot points scattered here and there, the first major plot point happens right at the end of the part. It reads well enough, from my perspective anyway, and it wouldn’t be an issue, except that the second half of the book goes across HALF A YEAR in comparison to the three weeks. And so much happens. I haven’t edited it through yet, so I don’t know how much of it I’m going to cut, or if I’m going to add in anything. Overall, everything is falling into place (I think) and my characters are doing as their told (except Harry who needs to cut the angst, gosh darn it)
I said last update that I will do character profiles, and they are coming! I promise! School has started and everything is a bit hectic so bare with me. I’ve been editing like mad, and am speeding through this draft. After I send this draft through to my critique partner I might try and get some beta readers, so be on the look out if you’re interested!
Here’s my quote for the post:
Two halves of the bridge, never meeting in the middle, rose from each side of the bank. A steal frame and wooden planks kept it in place, weathered from age. It had the air of being ancient; old and full of stories.
OooOOoOOoo WhAt’S tHe BrIDgE ??!!?!??? hehe
