I am participating in AW's Blog Blitz, so a hello to any of those folk who swing by here to leave comments!
I got a measley 200 words done yesterday on the rewrite, but I think it's a good jumping off point for today's work.
Is it strange that I keep thinking of things to include? And I don't mean plot things. I mean details about this world I've created. Superstitions, religions, ceremonies... It probably won't get more than a brief mention from me, maybe once. But I think including it would make things richer. I mean, what society doesn't have fears and tall tales? And those stories can tell a lot about the people who believe so fervently in them.
I also keep thinking about descriptive things to include. For example, winter in a marble palace would be coooooooold. So, my characters will need heavy robes, even inside. They'll need bed warmers. (no, not nubile young girls. Perv.) Just, things like that.
Again, small things. Things that, when reading it, the reader won't probably even realize. But for me, it was a minor epiphany.
