Back-Story Rewrite In Progress For Under the Darkened Moon

September 22, 2012 Leave a comment

Well, now I’ve done it! With Under the Darkened Moon’s live read and final edits proceeding nearly side-by-side, I have decided to tear apart part of the back-story and rewrite it. It was really the last thing I was thinking of as I was happily steaming towards producing a final manuscript.

I thought the end was within sight.  After all, the live read edit is in Chapter 36, the FINAL edit is in Chapter 25 and there are 44 Chapters to the story plus and epilogue.

But this rewrite had to be done. This was not something that I chose to undertake on a whim. Read more…

The Yoke – Third Draft Completed

March 27, 2012 Leave a comment

Last night I picked up my short story titled “The Yoke” and gave it a fresh look. The editing process added roughly 500 words to the story and it stands at 6,534 total words with epilogue.

Current “readability” statistics are:

Passive voice sentences 1%
Flesch Reading Ease 85.7
Flesch-Kincaid Grade Level 3.8

Not sure if it still needs another edit or not. Will probably revisit it in a few weeks and decide.

Changing POV At End Of Novel: Under The Darkened Moon

October 18, 2011 Leave a comment

I have decided for the epilogue of my novel, Under the Darkened Moon, to switch POVs. This is, of course, still a rough draft but I think it makes sense even though the entire novel has been 3rd person limited from the viewpoint of the main character to this point.

I want to pull back and go 3rd person omniscient to reveal things that are ok to reveal now that the story is over. Particularly the thoughts of the novel’s secondary character more in depth as well as putting the reader in the mind of a character who has been mentioned and referenced but never introduced until now and who has good reason to be introduced.

I wouldn’t consider changing POVs like this within the novel proper and suddenly but for the postscript, I think it will be ok and add to the story.
