Still kinda tough slogging. Characterization is hard! I have ideas of what I want to communicate for characters like Ravel, Serovate, Haynfyv, but it doesn’t seem to flow that way. And Cole and Cadence in this draft are so distinct from the last draft’s Cole and Cadence that it’s hard to keep tone straight. Finding the balance between simply moving forward and having some standards is brutal. Or something. Onward.
Actually, what I wrote yesterday makes more sense than I was afraid it didn’t. Which, as a sentence really doesn’t work, but is true. Trying to do some major recycling of content for the next bit, as we’re getting into stage 1 of Cole’s adventures in proactivity, so it’ll be more like a deep edit than straight writing if all goes well. If all doesn’t… well, let’s leave it at that.
