Editing Termion, Post * 6

Kinda funny that I'm posting this while in the middle of editing chapter 6 :)

Today great progress has been made! I managed to finish the edit of chapter 4, edit chapter 5, and start chapter 6. I was due to work on chapter 6 for another hour. Unfortunately, my extremely early wake up this morning (4am...2 hours earlier than normal) means I am now crashing. Editing isn't a good idea. I need a passive activity. I couldn't be responsible for strange typos. Strange ideas, well my muse handles that part of my wip all too well. She made a secondary character (who is probably more like a tertiary character) throw knives then collect them at the end of somersault!

Words were deleted, but in each chapter the final word count increased. Chapter 6 - well, I hope to finish that tomorrow. It was originally a quiet chapter after a series of tense scenes (I know what a scene is now! Thanks Inky!). Only now there's more tension, with an earlier appearance of the Count, and more layers to Bankar's life. This is all thanks to my secondary character, Jinna's father, Tarc. His perspective is adding another depth to Termion. Whoohoo!

Although I'm not as far as I'd like to be, concerning that deadline, I have no doubts that I'll catch up (somehow). Keep watching this space. You never know what my Muse will think of next.
