I’ve been away from the blog for a bit just due to time pressure… but now I have a few days of R&R here at home and I am making the most of it. Time, whenever I get to steal some, really is on my side. And no, I am not referring to the well-documented fact that THE PROVING and the rest of the Tome of Pasaron books have time travel as one of their central elements.
The beauty of working on THE PROVING in both its original version and during this extensive re-write is how easy it has been to write it. The story really just writes itself! The biggest challenge I have had is time, because easy or not, typing takes quite a bit of it.
As of this morning, I am plowing new ground in chapter 14 of the book, at a plot event that marks the halfway point of THE PROVING. I am still way over my word count goal, but am not worried. Cutting material is so much easier than writing new.
In the meantime, I am probably going to post one more preview chapter here on the blog today or tomorrow. Please give feedback, positive or negative! The more the merrier.
