I’ve finished editing the second chapter to this series. The editing process has been entertaining to say the least. It’s quite interesting to experience something you started writing almost two years ago for the second time. I’ve made some major changes to the characters. As like me, they are a little older now and just a little bit further along in life to help drive their connection. How can you fight the world for someone if you haven’t already fought it with them?
I was concerned about the placement of this chapter when I first wrote it. It throws the reader back into the very beginning of the story – even before the time line of the first chapter. It’s like a flashback, to add depth and meaning to the plot-line. The next chapter will actually jump ahead in time as well by a few weeks. I know some linear-plot lovers may not like this chaotic style of storytelling, but I felt that it was a fitting way for me to introduce the characters more after giving the reader just a brief overplay in the first chapter. Life is chaos in Zach’s world, so it should be told that way. I’d love to hear how a reader might feel about this method.
At the schedule that I am going, I should hopefully be able to get a chapter edited and published every two weeks. Slow coming, but that is the life of a part-time writer.
