Yes, this is the second day in the row of my #750 words! Thanks to getting back to my regular writing routine I have zipped through the Prologue and a quarter of Chapter 1. I found it hard to get back into Aster’s point of view after a long absence. The rough draft is really ROUGH and I’m not ever sharing that shit.
I also have a hard time with Samirah and differing her personality from Loren. I’m really going to have to take time in the second draft to flesh out her character and not make her a Muslim stereotype. The whole point of adding Samirah is to add real diversity to both Harry Potter and DC Comics.
Back to the Prologue, I found it once again thankful for me literally writing out the fight scene beat by beat before I actually wrote the damn thing because it made it a breeze. I also realized that I’m going to have to take a heavy dive into a certain part of the mythology that is not really delved into by the mainstream mythology nerds. So yeah, I pray to god you guys don’t come for me if I make a tiny mistake.
Now, let me talk briefly about ‘Birthday Girl’. Yesterday was terribly busy because it was Monday and the beginning and the end of the week are my busiest when it comes to work. I’m going to try to get it done by the end of the week. And hopefully, post it by Monday. Anyway, I’m done for the day and I’m going to skip to work and I hope you have a good day!
