I just finished writing what I think will be my favorite chapter in Book 2. Mwahahahahahha! I'm still perfecting my evil author laugh, but don't worry, I have several mentors helping me out along the way. I like this chapter for several reasons. It very clearly provides Mira's motives for the choices that she makes, as well as provides some background info on her past; it provides some crucial background information regarding Danaus; it provides a new twist to the plot that I think will catch readers off guard; and finally, the information revealed threatens to take away Mira's last support in a world that has largely turned against her. When I create a problem for a character, I like to make it very, very hard to solve it and survive.
And now onto a fight scene. Actually, I've got a couple that occur back to back. I really don't like writing fight scenes. For me, they are some of the most difficult to keep sounding fresh and exciting.
In the meantime, I am making some slow progress on the Web site. I am currently waiting for my host to finish updating, which should be in a day or two.
