Editing is the least fun part of the process for me. Does this fit? Should I take it out, or add to it? Now, with this book being more intertwined with with the next book than with Consequences, I've also been wondering if the content I'm writing now would be better off in the next book. I could also be overthinking all this. That happens too.
The writing itself isn't completely done, but where I'm at won't take long and I'm still working on how I want it to fit in. I wanted to show things from the perspective of the Lords, don't worry there's no spoiler here, as soon as that section starts you'll know it even without reading this.
The issue I'm having is deciding if I want to segment it throughout the book, or keep it together as one sigular chapter. Personally, I like the sub plots that build throughout the book and end at the time as the characters first find out about it. I don't think this is exactly literary irony, but it's at least a spinoff of the idea. In the grand scheme, the reader knowing before the characters does make little difference, which is why I'm trying to decide if I should bother.
There's already a lot of segmentation in this book. The rest is with good reason. It's either to introduce some bigger points in the next nppl, or to catch the reader up with the characters - this book takes place several years after the last.
So adding another segmented subplot is probably going overboard. I think I finally have my answer.Thanks to whoever reads these. :)
