I'm going through Chapters 5 and 6, making the changes to Anna's steampunk, scientific discoveries, and I'm writing a lot of new content. However, since there are changes, I'm also deleting quite a bit of old text. So my word count is creeping up. I can hardly wait to get through this section and to start really rolling again.
And yeah, this all reads like the first draft that it still is! Getting the down is what's important now. Making the text sing comes later. But the story, well... toot toot, I think it's pretty damned good.
If you watch my demo reel, you'll see Creed on an 1800s style operating table. Well, when I actually write a novel, I start improving things and making everything fit together as best I can. Also, as a 3D modeler and writer, I'm actually building models of some of the things in the book as I write it. Here's a preview of what the operating table now looks like. It is a work in progress, so it will be more complicated.
