Sensory Details

I’m working on a scene from the perspective of the main guy of Book 2.  I’ve revised the first bit from comments made by my awesome writing group and then took a look at the segment that comes next in the narrative (which is from my protagonist’s POV). I’m focused on having her hear things (she can’t see him) that have to do with what he did before she came into consciousness.

The  story is taking shape more and more.

I’m excited.

The Cost of Magic

So in the world I’ve created there are multiple branches of magic. I’ve come to understand how the two main branches work and what the cost of the magic is, however this is not the case for the branch of magic that my main guy in Book 2 is a part of.

My goal at this point in writing Book 2 is to figure out what he can do with his magic and come up with the cost for each thing. I’m curious to see how this ends up working.

Tragic Flaw

Just as characters have tragic flaws, so do writers. My biggest struggle, as my writing group members know, is pacing. I have a habit of rushing through certain moments that shouldn’t be rushed through.

I need to figure out how to slow down better.

We all have our own tragic flaws that we can work on. What is something that you want to work on?
