Gordath Wood III — not a sequel but a new beginning

Progress on what I have been calling GWIII is continuing apace. In fact, I only hit a glitch last night when after writing a 1,500 word scene I went to bed, only to realize that the scene is probably redundant. This happens. I may cut it or rewrite, but I’m not too concerned. While writing Red Gold Bridge, I wrote so fast and furiously that I went off in too many wrong directions. In fact caromed is not too strong a word. I have a delete file of some 50,000 words, which is more than half the finished book.

That’s not happening this time, or at least not to as great an extent.

But going back to GWIII — it’s not the third book in a trilogy. This book is set in the same story-verse as its predecessors but I have taken a different tack. It’s the first book in what is likely to be a new duology. Gordath Wood and Red Gold Bridge are a complete series. This one restarts with some of the same characters.

It’s fun. It’s different. I’m enjoying it. And for now, during first draft time, that’s all that counts.

As for the blog fixes — there are still some 404s out there, leading to a This Site Are Closed message. Ugh. That hurts to read — thanks WordPress for your excellent grammar! — but please note I didn’t write it. Anyway, if you get that link, let me know. And just hit Home in the top bar nav and it will take you to the actual working part of the site. Thanks for your patience.

    That does hurt to read!

    I’ve fixed that page. :) It wasn’t WordPress’ fault, but rather the Dezzain Studio guys, whose template we’re using (with modifications).

    I take back my sarcastic comment to WordPress then. ;-)
