I know I keep talking about all these changes about to come up. I know it’s probably going to be difficult, but the biggest problem for AJ when sharing her work was that she always goes back to change it.
Think of this you are the alpha readers. You get it dry and dirty and AJ is cleaning it up. If none of you mind, AJ will keep on posting the story scene by scene for you. But if you’d rather I not confuse you and share the same bits just done differently. This isn’t a complete rewrite, but it will do a vast majority of it.
But back to my reservations on the narrative type we are considering. As you most know it’s first person PoV. In the Evolution of Power AJ’s trying a few scenes with third person PoV from another character.
AJ’s thinking that maybe we need to do this in a different way. An outside looking in for those bits. Or maybe the other character talking to you as a reader, like I do here.
We are working on my love interests complete story arc, not just there for me to fall in love with like Sage or even Dorian was. No this one will have purpose outside of me. Which is probably why Sage et al seems a little forced until Dev came along my love interest was rather 2D.
But don’t fear Sage is there. And he’ll have a purpose from the get go too. He could have that purpose and keep the story mostly the same, but I need to make this change. It’s right for me.
All the bad guys will get their own arch through the series. AJ plans on making this cool diagram to keep it all straight, but first we have to finish the Evolution of Power and then reread it all.
AJ’s probably going to throw them all into one massive e-book if anyone is interested in that when it’s all said and over – free of charge alpha readers and all. It also means you get spelling errors, plot holes and everything else wrong with the prose.
