A very productive day on the writing front today. I have no idea how much of it will make final draft but it sure is interesting. It will need a good polish if it’s going to last the course but one thing is certain, this is not turning out to be the book I thought it was going to be.
Not that I have a problem with that, it’s just that it’s beginning to stray at little from my pitch. Oh well, I didn’t really know where Sanchin was going until I dotted the final I and crossed the final T. I ended up tweaking the pitch on that so I guess it doesn’t matter that much.
One character in particular is full of surprises. A couple of shocks in some cases too. My main concern at the moment is that he seems to be taking over the story. I might have to step in and knock him down a peg or two. Oh the power!
Power? Ha! Who am I trying to kid. The last time I put one of my characters in his place it caused a big stink and I had to do some serious moderating of the story. The gist of it remains but it’s still a bone of contention among a couple of my ‘advisors’. I use the term loosely as I’m not good at taking advice when it comes to the storyline.
Bad writing? No problem, say your piece and put me on the right track. But don’t mess with my content.
