For those who stumbled upon this off the road corner of the internet (do people still read blogs??), I wanted to give you a little treat for finding your way here! Last year for NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), I took the shattered pieces that was the massive discarded draft of The Uncrucified's 3rd person rewrite and started to reform them into an all-new draft that completely reframes the story.
Enjoy a peek at the new draft now dubbed The Uncrucified: Second Breath!
For those who have been here awhile, the 3rd person rewrite just felt off for me, as I mentioned in the last post here. The intro just wasn't hooking readers and it was going to take us forever to get to the latter part of Kalara's life as a Solar.
So now, I've found a new entry point for how we meet Kalara which allows me to show both her Solar life and glimpses of her mortal life. To be sure, bits of the old draft will show up, but we're on an all-new path now with The Uncrucified: Second Breath!
I hope to unveil Second Breath for proper beta-reading at some point in the (hopefully) near-future, but I don't want us to keep spinning our wheels with it, so it'll go through a first draft and a pass from an editor first to be fully completed before I'm ready to show it to Beta Readers.
Till then, I leave you with the new story's One Sentence Pitch! And if you be so bold, you can also check out the Fantasy Indies August Twitter thread, where I shared fun tidbits about The Uncrucified's newest incarnation.
Enjoy and let me know if you're still alive out there, Uncrucified fans!
