Counter Tenor Update
After finishing the first typed draft (except for the very last scen, still working that out), and expanding it, I printed it out and did some minor edits on it. (Mostly the printout was there to keep me distracted from some thingies going on.)
And then what happens? I think of yet another way to expand the bloody story. Why not start it out with the major events going on in the capital before the story starts? I could alternate between Moonstone's POV in the capital and whatever is going on in Brodin's life during this time (bandit raids, mages showing up at his castle, etc.). So I'm working on the outline for this now. It is nice to have the distraction at this point anyway.
Oh, and something weird happened while I was working up the outline. Very early in the outline, the king decided to bethroth Moonstone to his daughter, Princess Rowena. And yes, the king knows of Moonstone's preferences, as does the daughter. This could bring out some new complications...
I may have also done some Gorok & Wulf edits recently. I've lost track.
