To those of you who read the first draft, you’ll notice a lot of new material in this chapter. I filled in several unresolved issues, and I think it turned out adding a lot of character to the book’s beginning. But adding too much in a second draft can be dangerous – it can slow down the pace and needlessly bulk up the book. I kept that in mind, but I must say I’m happy with the additions.
What do YOU think? does this chapter keep with the pace of the book? Is the information about Will’s inheritance / another funeral more than you wanted to know? Or does it help you better grasp the characters and the plot? Let me know!
Tale of the Wisconsin Werewolf is not a book. Not yet. It is still growing, evolving, and shaping itself into the story it will become. The first draft has been completed, and now I’m in the process of refining it. I would love to have you join in the experience, and participate in reading each chapter of the second draft as they come out. To learn more about how you can get involved, click here.
So stay tuned. This is only the beginning. Tale of the Wisconsin Werewolf is on its way to becoming a full-fledged novel. This book is bigger than you or me; this is a community. Follow the action now, and become a part of it before it makes it to press.
