With Smooth Running, I started with a fight in a strip club. I mention magic and cyberware. Right off the bat, I'm promising sex and violence, magic and technology. I think Smooth Running delivered on that promise.
With Angel Odyssey I think I'm promising adventure, courage and heart. Hopefully I delivered on that, too. I imagine I'll be polishing my first three pages of Angel Odyssey just as much, if not more, than I did Smooth Running. Its in pretty good shape so far but I need to work more on those first three paragraphs.
I'll be starting my revisions this weekend, fixing some stuff in Chapter 1 (I want to mull on the beginning a bit more before tinkering too much) and finishing up chapter 2. This first revision is just going to be me reading it aloud and fixing typos. Subsequent passes will probably get more in-depth.
I'll keep you posted on it and anything else from 'Beginnings, Middles and Ends'
