I typed the outline down in Word. That gave me a chance to add a couple of few ideas for scenes, even if it was just something like "Insert a scene with his wife here." I also changed the ending. Originally, the prince faked his death so he could lay in state and then sit up in the coffin when the guilty party walked by the coffin. Instead, I used an idea someone gave me, and it ended up like this in the outline:
Unfortunately no one told the royal embalmer that the prince isn't really dead. He sees the prince's beautiful corpse and decides it must be preserved by a method involving scooping out the innards or drawing out the blood or something. When he pricks the prince's skin with his blade, the prince jumps out and shouts "Ouch!" The royal embalmer runs out screaming, then manages to set himself on fire and leap off... whoops, wrong story. ;-)
Maybe I really should include a scene with someone catching and fire, running around like a crazy man, and leaping off a precipice...
Yesterday, I also reread some of the new Gorok and Wulf stuff I had written. I read the attempt I'd made at writing a beginning to the story (it wasn't an exciting start, involving Gorok, Wulf, and Kensin eating at the same table because of their new alliance). I also read the scene I'd written where Vargil and Danrig try to escape, and their escape attempt leads to the murder of one of the guards (the one Gorok likes the most) and attempted murder of Jer and of course, and ends with one of them doomed to be skinned alive for his crime. That was more interesting. (Well I should hope so, if the dining scene turned out to be more interesting, I'd be worried!) Don't know that I want Dove to die, however. :(
Maybe I should start out trying something with that idea I had, "Queer Eye for the Gay Barbarian..."
