Well, I haven’t mentioned Dawn in quite awhile as I’ve been waiting for the first set of edits to happen. I got them today, which means I’ll be very busy over the next few months. While the comments weren’t as numerous as I thought they’d be, there was one big one – mainly rewrite the entire ending.
(This is not the cover – it’s one of my student’s drawings with the background from Rancour – done by Matsoureff.)
This means it’s time to see the story with fresh eyes, and leave the “artist” at home. It’s now product, and it needs to be tweaked so that other readers, not just myself, can understand and enjoy it. If all goes well, Dawn will be cast out into the world August 2009 – alongside a new, improved Rancour.
