Of all my characters in To Kill the Goddess it’s Kaytlyn who I pick on the most.
I’d love to be kind to my characters, but I can’t. Think back to all the good books you’ve read or movies you’ve seen and there isn’t a single one where the main characters don’t get put through the ringer. Kaytlyn goes through the ringer alright, and Chapter 8 is no exception. Although, in this final revision, I’ve decided to bow to the Scribblerati’s wisdom and let her strut her stuff a little bit. I still kick her ass, but she gets in a couple of good punches before she goes down. It’s a good change.
Also on deck this weekend was Chapter 7. I ripped right through that one. And then there was more on Chapter 4, a partial rewrite in the middle that should alleviate a number of concerns people had with Chapter 7.
All in all a good, productive weekend!
I even did a whole bunch of critiquing on Mark’s Blackheart.
Who’s your daddy?
