Writing

The first draft of my detective/urban fantasy was written over the course of about two years, interrupted by a lot of other projects and events. The plot takes place over the course of two weeks, each day is covered. I kept an outline of the story, of course, but because a day can run over several chapters, what happened five chapters earlier can still be "yesterday," which means it's far too early to have something happen the next day. I'm half way through the revision and realized I'm going to have to do some serious reconstruction, moving events around, to make the timing make sense. And there lays easy traps for screwing up.

Ugh.

Otherwise, I'm enjoying it.
