Finished 1.5 Revisions on Defender
So that means, as I wrote, I saw where the unnecessary characters were, the threads that didn't make sense, the emotions that needed punching, and better lines/ideas. Not to mention, I pretty much had to do a SECOND round of world-building, where I had to go through the story and identify every term and character that needed a name or a better name.
Now the second draft is ready, in which I will go through the story as I normally do, as a piece of prose, instead of inserting bits and pieces where appropriate. The part I'll need to work hard on is gluing those pieces together that I shifted around.
In the meantime, I get to try my hand at some new short stories. I have one about a cyclops and one about an apple orchard dryad. Good times.
