Since I have spent a lot of time away from my computer, I found it necessary to go back and reread what I had written. Good thing I did, too. There were a lot of changes I made to the original manuscript (I guess you could call it my first BIG edit). So that meant, today, I was making those changes. Once I was finished with the edits, I kept on going... And going... And going! I am VERY satisfied with the work I have accomplished today.
I think I have made the fairy prince, Phelan, fairly snarky, and his rival, Druce, kind of threatening and untrustworthy when it comes to his relationship with Ella. I know I will have fun with these characters - it's always more fun to write in the bad ones.
From the looks of this book, I think it will be much darker than the previous three. FUN, FUN, FUN! I kind of equate writing about bad characters as portraying the bad character on stage - it's always more fun to play the villain.
