I’ve been struggling, wrestling, fighting, and being bludgeoned into a pulp by the first chapter of my next book, Flesh of Legends, a follow up to Blood of Heroes. I have no idea why I can’t figure this out. I’ve gone through seven different attempts, completed around 6,000 words and realized it wasn’t working.
I might need to go back to some of my older efforts, like The Second Cut (about historic female samurai Tomoe Gozen) and see what’s going on there. Work my head around a different problem before I come back to this one.
