Yep, I Did (and Why Beginnings Suck)

In case you were hanging on the edges of your seats waiting to find out how well I slept last night, the answer is: a lot better.

However, I ended up restarting my novel for the third time.

Gah. Well, it had to be done.

I realized that what a lot of the Wyrdsmiths had to say about the first chapter was right (imagine that!), and, having finally written out a synopsis for the whole novel, I realized I hadn't really set up any of the important character bits or... well, the ending (which I now know.)

I have to say it's really hard to go back to a series I thought was finished. I've forgotten a lot about writing science fiction in general, and this series in specfic.

Anyway, off to go write now.
