More Words More Problems

This is going to be a  short update for now. Scrapping that last chapter was the best move I’ve done. It really didn’t make sense. Yet, as I continue reading, I don’t feel like this Chapter 5 is something to brag about. Even with a little over 1600 words, it’s sluggish, a little boring and very depressing.

I’m just about finished with the chapter which is great, and I believe it’s a plot progression chapter. It provides  more background information about Sariah, and why she’s  attending this school. In all, it’s all about the protagonist in this case.

Right now, I’m focusing on descriptions with this chapter. When I wrote the chapter, I really didn’t have a clear setting in place. Toward the end, it sounded rush, I push my characters around from place to place. It didn’t flow very well. It was like the backdrop changed and my characters were in the same room getting through what I want them to say, do, and act out. There’s no real connection or building of any relationship with the the setting or between the characters; it sounded stiff like someone dancing to a beat with no rhythm.

I have to fix that! I’m hoping to finish this chapter very soon since I have maybe a fourth of a the chapter left.
