As promised, I finished chapter 12 of the book a few days ago.
Just one problem.
I mean it really sucked.
The actions of the characters didn’t make any sense, everything was too convenient and what I was left with was in the end a long action sequence with a dull ending. Five thousand words and twenty pages of nothing.
Before I move on to 13, these issues have to be resolved, as the actions of one chapter affect the next. I have a few ideas that seem like they are worth a try. So far the re-writes are going well enough. It seems that the best thing to do would not be adding stuff on, but taking more stuff out. I have deleted an additional 1000 words since the chapter was ‘completed.’
I see more deletions in chapter 12’s future. Might make it a short one, but short and sweet wins over long and dull any day.
