As some of you know, I had to stop #writing on account of moving across the country. In recent posts, I’ve made it clear that I was back again, blogging and writing my #fantasy novel “The First Light.” I even hammered out a new short story as well.
I was able to complete chapter 16, “May the Light Shine Upon Thee.” It’s a fun and happy chapter despite its rather serious-sounding title, which comes from a ceremony that is performed within the chapter. The subsequent celebration and feast are the elements that give this particular segment its light-hearted flavor.
As I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I was deathly afraid of a dreary “Act II Malaise” taking hold of the story. However, I’m pleased with the pace. So far Act II ( chapters 11 – 19 ) has some great revelations, action, comedy, romance, mystery, and overall good times, sprinkled throughout its pages.
I’d love to you all more about it in detail, but then I’d be giving too much away.
How are you handling your version of a second act?
