Yup I added in a couple thousand words to explain a few things, add some history and now I have to stare off in to space and figure out the next step. I have to get the good guys read to face the bad guys..okay woman. Filling in back story helps to make your book a bit longer of course but too much padding to me is a waste of space. So I have to work on it of course but deciding just what to do before the penultimate battle well that is the hard part.
The Messengers that I had introduced I think will have a bit more to say before things go on. They are like the Wizards from LoTR. Powerful creatures but mostly they don’t interact with everyday life. Edana of course is a special case. Ah having a prophesied one. People are just now trying ot tell her what she needs to do…and being a typical redhead…well you get the idea. She will not do what they want the way they want it.
Having fun prereading for another writer, who I happen to love her stuff so it is fun. Reminds me of the old days back in the 90s back when I did a lot of editing and prereading and cowriting with friends. I have gotten better…I hope…at writing since then…I know I have since the 80s so we will just have to see right?
