Writing Craft

Sphere's Edge:idea: Regular readers know that I have begun posting a novel that I originally wrote in the mid 1980’s, and that I am currently in the process of polishing, updating, and rewriting that novel. It is called “On a Sphere’s Edge.”

A major rewrite is currently in process. In the original text, I had taken a fairly standard approach of examining the protagonists, and then peeking in on the doings of the antagonists. I have elected to reject my original approach.

Instead, I am focusing more on our hero, seeing the majority of the story unfold from her point of view, and giving the reader little direct information on the antagonists. I believe this will add to the mystery and suspense. Beyond that, I believe it will make the antagonists more frightening. We always fear the unknown.

As such, almost every other chapter of the original writing will be scrapped, and this means a major rewrite. And as such, where I thought I might make posts to the story on a rapid, almost daily basis, posts of the novel will become more of a once-a-week or even rarer event.

In the interim, I will continue more of the normal sort of posts on the blog.
