I’m almost halfway through the read-through of Marks of Repentance, aka Shanh’s story. I’m certainly seeing things that need addressing, but all in all I really love this story still. I wrote the first draft from March to July 2005 and wanted nothing more than to keep going and write its sequel.
Somehow or other I managed to see reason and remember that getting space from a story is not likely to happen while writing sequels. As I’m reading these days I’m seeing the seeds I’ve planted for the sequel and the desire to keep writing in this world is reviving itself. Whether that could ever be lucrative depends entirely on how good a job I do ironing out MoR. With that in mind, I’m diving back in.
