There’s a good chance that I’ll end up rewriting the whole first chapter more than once, if Angel Odyssey is any indication. But I have a good flow going.
Odd things I’ve noticed so far, the ‘voice’ of the character feels older than 18. I’m trying to work that into the story naturally since I always felt I was born 30 and just had to grow into it. I’m sure there are other kids who feel older on the inside than they look on the outside. Another oddity, I seem to want to write this in present tense instead of past. For example, ‘the salesman looks up’ instead of ‘the salesman looked up’. I’m going to go with it, my subconscious is usually smarter than I am but I’ll share out the first few chapters once they’re done, to see if I’m on the right track.
Tonight is IM gaming night and tomorrow is editing night, so The Mageborn Mechanic is going to have to rest for a few days but I can’t wait to get back into it and tell this story.
