>Solid foundations

>23,356 words

The Dragoncharm prequel is on track. I’ve solved the problems of chapter 3, as outlined here. And yes, that’s why another 2,000 words have dropped off the count.

Next step is a light edit of chapters 4-6. Chapter 6 marks the end of the first section – or book – of the novel, which is why I’m indulging in all this reviewing. Some writers would shudder at the idea of editing so early in the game. But this is the foundation not just for this novel but the planned sequels, so I need to make sure it’s not built on sand.

Of course, come the time for the second draft, I’ll rewrite the whole bloody thing anyway!
