Chapter Two is EVIL!

I’m late! I’m late! I have been so crazy with work and other things and really that’s just an excuse. Excuses = bad. I know I know, stop making excuses and do it! Well this is why I’m typing write now. New blog upcoming!

I really like the first chapter of the story that I’m working on. It’s still very rough and what not. I haven’t gone back to do any changes, I just read it back over and was a bit impressed with myself. I thought I did a pretty good job. Pretty good is not great, but that comes later when I actually get the entire story hammered out.

Therein lies the problem. Chapter two is being the most stubborn, uncooperative, want to kick the words and beat them up, chapter every. I know where the story is going, I really, actually and truly do, which is why after I did chapter two I moved on to chapter’s three and four. For some reason though, I keep coming back to chapter two. Something isn’t sitting right with me and I can’t quite put my finger on it. Maybe chapter two is a bit slow, or maybe I pulled too many extra characters in at that point. I’m just not sure. I just know it’s not right.

Now, I could continue writing new chapters, but the problem with that is, depending on what I change in chapter two it could, at least in subtle ways change the way the story goes. Either way a lot would have to change, so at the moment I’m sticking with chapter two until I can figure out what’s bugging me and what I need to do to change it.

On the reading side of things I am completely stuck on Phaedra Weldon’s Zoe Martinique series. I go through the books in less than a day. I neglect all of my responsibilities, stay up till ungodly hours (well okay for most people it’s ungodly hours), and sometimes ignore the phone completely just to find out what’s going to happen next. I’ve read Wraith and Spectre. On Tuesday I’ll be heading out to the library to pick up Phantasm.
I’m trying to get into Daemon’s are Forever by Simon R. Green. I usually adore his stuff but for some reason, this one seems a bit slow. However, I have been assured by a very reliable source that it is well worth the read, so I will push on!

The new Dresden book is out and I have it on hold, but I think it may be a while before I get it. The library has more copies on order due to the high volume of people who want it. Everyone loves a wizard.
