Round 2

on

Editing is boring. It’s good that it’s getting done but it can be so boring. I want to move on to book two. AJ says we have more planning to do.

But we can’t do that if you are play Mass Effect!

There is a disturbance in the force of my will power. I’m failing to make AJ work! I need to get stronger, more robust. Or maybe be more enticing. If we finish the edits and the planning I’ll let you play Mass Effect. I don’t think that’s gonna work. But it might we’ll see.

But AJ’s found a new appreciation for Mods in ME. Specially in 2 where there are tons of mini games, and boring planet scanning. AJ installed a mod to remove the mini games and only one probe is needed to scan a planet. Makes life so much simpler. And AJ’s played the game 5 or 6 times already so she doesn’t feel it’s cheating.

AJ has to work on Alex’s snowflake starter blurbs and the villain of book 2. It’s not going to be the same book as the last one. It’s a completely different book. It’s going to pull Taking Back Erebus which was about the nightmare and demon and the original Darwynn’s Law which was about the therians and Venatori in Colorado. And those two books are going to pull in a lot of lore and work AJ did for the AU What if we did for NaNo. It’s a far better book 2 then any we’ve seen thus far and will only slightly changed things in terms of books 3 and 4 which are still slated to be be about the vampires and the venatori successively. Though book 3 will likely take place not in New York as it did for the last rewrite and return to a big more of the original book 3 where I went to Europe. That is as long as I’m still on my mandatory 2 week vacation. AJ’s hoping book 2 is only a week long too. So we can spend another week in Italy/Europe.
