OK, so I started writing Gorok and Wulf again. Then, on Wednesday, at the Fiction Writing class, I learned it was my turn to bring in a story to be read next week. No one seemed in the mood to read the flogging chapter -- I think they completely misunderstood what it was all about, despite my protests. ;) I had used the first sentence from the Leona & Maddox story in an exercise in class. So instead, I offered to bring in a few chapters from this story I had been working on eons ago... Naturally, they took me up on it, and before I knew it, I spent much of Wednesday night paring down the first few chapters to have something the right length -- not just one chapter, because that might be too short and not give enough hints of what happened, but not too much. I ended up cutting out or combining a couple of the early chapters (chapters 2 and 3). It helped the story!

So now I may be caught by a short Leona & Maddox bug. I even got a great idea for the ending, much better than the original, and better than the new one I thought of after discussions when I dredge it back up.

Don't worry, I truly believe that I can combine writing about Gorok and Wulf and writing about Leona & Maddox. I will also feel much better when I look at my Gorok and Wulf chapters and realize how much better I am as a writer. If I were to cut Chapters 2 and 3 out of the Gorok and Wulf story, something would be missing! :-O (For example, the apple episode with Jupe, a creepy meeting with Kensin, Gorok's discovery of Koura, Gorok and Wulf interacting in the infirmary...) And I will have fun applying my most recent writing lessons to Leona & Maddox. (They do tend to send sparks shooting off the page...)
