Jago is beginning to take shape – it’s still very loose and needs a lot more spadework before it’s even a proper draft, but it’s mostly there. There are bits I’ll have to take out, one in particular might be used as part of a sequel, which I definitely have in mind, in fact Jago is part of a trilogy, but that’s years away from being more than a few scattered scenes in my mind.
It’s strange how some characters just develop, more than intended, and how others have to step back at times.
I’m printing out each section and then going through it in detail, then I’ll redraft each section, then put it all together and see how it works. Then maybe another structural edit. Then further polishing. Etc.
This time next year it’ll be in shape.
