500 New Words

Well, I fought off the impulse to start fresh on Monday and went ahead and wrote the new opening scene for Chapter One.

I like it.

It's still rough, but it does a couple things. It opens with action (it could use a bit more): David Wagner (formerly Graham) zipping around Graphite trying to find a newspaper box with a copy of the paper still inside it. He fails, and in failing reveals character. With the demon exiting Stage Left at the end of the prologue and Wagner entering solo in chapter one, I think there's a fair chance the reader might infer correlation (esp. since both have anger management issues). I hope so at any rate. (Of course you, dear blog reader, will miss out on the old switcheroo, but there'll be other surprises in store. Surprises galore, in fact.)

500 words. Not a lot, but it's a start.
