With the help of a space heater my fingers tremble a little less. Back tracking on the Destiny series…excitement with an over zealous determination caused a fun loving 14 chapters until I realized that it wasn’t plausible whatsoever. One clue that was being held over the characters had been cleared up in the first book. Cue head banging against the desk. Trying desperately to save all the work but switching the clues about so not all the awesomeness is wasted.
Thinking through the way I plotted out the first outline, I never exactly explain what the creatures are…or at least not right away. Which is good mystery however by the time I actually name it the details already explain themselves. Is it possible to not state what the mythical creature is until the last sentence of the book? The details are obvious so I feel actually saying it makes the reader feel like an idiot. I’m not going to spell it out but the hints are there. Would it be best to write out the whole story line before breaking it up into novels or chapters?
