I've been writing like a bandit these last few days. The story is just flowing and my characters keep surprising me. To be honest, I can't stop writing because I want to know how it all ends! That's what happens when you're a pantser and let the characters tell the story.
For my new followers, I should probably clarify how my book came about. Earlier this year, I had an almost complete first draft of Heir. But somewhere along the way, the story changed. My characters demanded that the story be told from a different viewpoint. I listened and as a result, I've spent the last few months writing, re-writing, cutting, and editing. It went from a story about fantastical elves to alternate realities. It was an ambitious switch, but one that I'm completely happy with. The theme is still there, but the world is quite different.
Now that I'm almost done, I have decided on another drastic change. After much consideration, I decided to rename my WIP from Heir to Parallel. I also anticipate a cover change to reflect all these changes.
Until next time, when I hope to have an even better update (i.e. release date!)
