As I continue to work on my own writing projects and various other job searches and whatnot (ah, the glorious life of the college graduate during that first year after commencement), I’ve established myself as a freelance editor. I’ve not had a whole lot of success with this thus far, just because of the nature of finding work in my field. However, one of my good friends has recently finished her first novel, and I am quite honored to say that I have been given the task of preliminary editing before passing it on to a literary agent. I guess that’s my way of saying “Nah nah,” because I get to read it first. 😀

I’m fleshing out characters even more. This week, I’ve been having a lot of discussions, as it were, with Zach, the narrator. Zach’s an interesting character to spend time with, but he’s not the protagonist, so it’s a balancing act to avoid putting him in the spotlight too much. He’s been telling me a lot about himself this week. For example, he’s a lot older than I originally thought, but it’s hard to judge the age of a man who may or may not have some sort of immortality.

Additionally, the heretofore unnamed characters hiding at the back of the group have finally spoken up. The alcoholic innkeeper says his name is Miles, and the little girl, whose relationship with Landara is probably going to have some similarities to the one you see here, is Rebecca. Say hello.
