I’ve finally revised Descendant’s Diary down to 90K words. I’d like to lose maybe 5K more, if possible, but I’m satisfied with the word count remaining as is, if need be.
That being said, I’m not done. The first chapter (used to be prologue, now I’ve decided it’s a chapter) is in first POV while the rest is in third POV. I’ve decided that I don’t have a compelling enough reason to keep it as such. Seriously, I felt like I was back in my constitutional law course deciding whether a case can hold up to strict scrutiny. I’ve decided it can’t.
Thus I have to change it. Though I love it as it is, I know I have to let it go. I’m sure I can make it as good as it is now in third POV… at least, I hope so.
