#amwriting #amediting Going back to square one

Rebuilding everything while trying to keep the book in phase with Astoria as a built old C3 planet and keeping  free-mind mapping up to to date really means I need to go back to the start of the book; work through it and update the planet and free-mind as I rework it.

Story to a degree shouldn’t change – possibly a few more words earlier than I’d planned – and it was something I needed to do.

I do, at least have a much better idea of the stuff I’m writing and how the initial ideas fit together.

I need to develop the Matira’s trying to wipe out the Droga’s and also Griselda’s insane killing spree that drove Drufus to try and kill a planet in revenge.

There is so much to write about as the ideas have developed; in a way, I don’t mind having to start afresh or sort-of.

It is something I needed to do and it was in a way my own fault and on an IT site I would have never tried it.

Jean has given permission to build my own machine and I already have a box and a gold power supply – now I buy the rest.

Thanks for reading.
