Where to begin? I've written a VAST backstory to the book, but am in the dilema regarding how much is to actually appear in the book. Rather than leave my editor to sort it out (hi, Lins!) I'm going back and forth, putting stuff in, taking stuff out, moving it and shaking it all about.
Have crossed the half-way point of the rewrite, but will revisit a few key scenes to spice it up a little (actually, a lot!). I think I've just got a tendency for melodrama. I'm not for quiet moments of self-denial and whistful looks. If you want characters moping around feeling sorry for themselves, look elsewhere. Thunderstorms, divine heartbreakers, demonic killers, the fate of the world, destiny, revenge, swordfights and violence. And more swordfights. These are a few of my favourite things!
