Part One Revised

I got the first 30K worth of words in the novel revised. I think I’ve hit another landmark. The prologue and the first part are ready to be looked at for really reals now. And I’ll have to let those with red pens cut down my poor grammar choices and typos (which I think any author will tell you sneak in all the time).

My revisions in the first portion of the novel have much to do with content however, mostly to deal with the love interest between two main characters. My betas (rightly) noted that the romance seemed wooden. I think I’ve eased some of that out I hope. I’m a poor judge given that relationships, to date, have not been my strong suit.

The next part I think will mostly be timing related. Making sure things happen in a sensible order that won’t confuse the hell out of the reader. We’ll see how it turns out.
