Today I was showering, which tends to be when I get most of my ideas, and I thought about the prologue that I have attached to Essentials right now. I feel like it’s a little rushed, and there is a lot more story that could happen there.
Part of me, a big majority now that I’ve thought about it for a while, wants to take the prologue, and all the ‘Before’ flashbacks and expand them into their own book. Then Essentials, as it stands now, would be more of a follow-up or a sequel set in the same world.
I don’t really know what I’m going to do with that. It would probably take about 15k words off of Essentials, and then I could grow the “Before” into its own book. I’ll need to think about that.
As to updates, I’ve gone over about 4 chapters of editing over the past two days. I haven’t taken out a whole lot, added a little detail. Mostly it’s been rearranging or rewording sentences. I’m sitting at about $360 in my book fund, and that’s about it. Thanks for reading 🙂
