I just finished writing out the original outline (after a fashion) for The Sword of Justice. I have a better idea of the general drive of the story.
The basic story? A lone battle-worn wizard takes on a former street urchin as an apprentice in his search for pieces of a sword of power.
Now I just need to fine tune the story. What I am seeing in this manuscript is that my dad was rushing to get to the next scene and was brushing over things that should have been described. What does this mean? It means that I now have a bunch of really cool scenes that I need to write in order to bolster the story. It also means that this may not be just one story. But that’s not for me to say yet. I still have to rewrite the outline to it’s shiny new version.
