Author of the Creed of Kings Saga

Structure first, paint last

Gearing up for the final draft of Blood & Soul. I’m re-reading it, looking for improvements in the story itself. I’m not proofreading yet. That is the last thing to do. 5 years ago started out trying to write pretty sentences and nearly drove myself crazy. It took me a long time to figure out I was looking through the wrong end. I learned a valuable lesson, a humbling lesson. Structure first, paint last. Story is Structure/building, words are the paint, the trim, the texture.
