Not "In sight" like a mountain is in sight either, like you can see it but the
closer you get the farther it seems and then it's like BAM mudslide does eight
thousand dollars worth of property damage to your and surrounding houses.
I won NaNoWriMo by getting 50,000 words in thirty days, but since have been trying to
actually finish the book (at a much saner pace, may I add.)
At chapter fourteen, I am now actually almost done. I've got maybe... Six chapters
It's not that I haven't meticulously planned it out, it's just that I plan the events
of the book, then end chapters where the break seems most natural.
Now it is time to list revisions I know I'll need though.
1- More emphasis placed on Vessal's concept of lying to get people nearer to the
2- Draw attention to the possibility of exploration
3- Mention the lack of horses in other areas
4- Ejin shouldn't be revealed as an antagonist until after the king falls ill
5- Further develope the romantic interest of Pate/ Adelaide and (by extention) make
it more sad when she leaves
6- Make it clearer to the reader that Vessal has no interest in Mimii
7- Make Vessal's father's death less confusing/ more clear that it's foreshadowing of
the kings illness
8- Larger role played by Leander
9- Use bets as a tool to show the relationship between Ves and Pate
10- Everything else can be done within the next few chapters.
