Yesterday’s update may have been premature.

I may have been premature yesterday in stating that I’m putting Empire of Chains aside for the moment. It has some problems, especially in the later books, but I might be able to fix these problems through editing. I still feel the first book is the strongest, but only for the moment. I think I can make the others just as strong. It will simply take more work than usual during the revision process.

The more I think about it, the more I realize this is the story I want to tell. It just has some rough spots. And when I get into a bad depressive phase, all I can see are those rough spots. Thankfully, that mood has lifted, and now I’m looking at it more objectively.

  1. Hi Ryan,

    I found your blog through the angry robot thread on absolute writer. I just wanted to say that I’ve been in the same place more than once. I set the writing aside, take a breather (sometimes weeks), and head back at it with a fresh perspective. glad to hear you’re pushing through!
