The Cursed Man (almost) finished

Sat, 25th February 2017

This week, I completed my rewrite of THE CURSED MAN. As of right now, the book stands at 105,000 words. Not bad. From here, I will start on the readthrough, as well as the edits and tweaks that I identified during the first rewrite. There are certain edits that I decided not to incorporate immediately, as I wanted to give the near-finished book a read first, and find the best places to make the changes.

I'll be putting the book aside for at least the next four or five weeks, though, and concentrating on the rewrite of THE DRAGON MISTRESS, instead. I've always found that I prefer to step away from something I'm working on for a while, to create some distance, and be able to look upon it with fresh eyes. THE DRAGON MISTRESS could require not just one, but two rewrites, as there were certain aspects of the story I found I wasn't keen on the first time around (such as the dragon's POV). The events of the novel are also parallel to those happening in THE CURSED MAN, so extra care will need to be taken to ensure any tweaks I've made to THE CURSED MAN are not contradicted in THE DRAGON MISTRESS.

I have a good feeling that THE CURSED MAN will be completely finished by mid-summer, while THE DRAGON MISTRESS by the end of the year. We'll see what happens, though. After that, I'm not sure what I'll work on next, but something will probably come up. I'm not into writing sequels or trilogies any more, so there won't be any follow-ups to these two stories. Perhaps another space opera.
