I’m rewriting the outline (the OUTLINE) for Scion of Wornten for the third time. Why? First, because I discovered a gaping plot hole during my second draft of the novel. Second: TENSION. I didn’t feel there was enough of it in the first outline.
I have also destroyed two characters and added one new. This new actress stems the plot hole rather elegantly, I think, and also gives me another string to pull against one of the mains. That should help things along.
Assuming I keep up steady progress, I should have the outline done by mid-week and the second draft completed by the end of September…maybe.
