Progress Update for "Offspring" Sequel

Sometimes in writing it is necessary to do the hard thing and today I decided that it was necessary. I had planned out my second novel quite precisely and thus far have almost 100 pages of a first draft. But I struck upon a grander scheme for the novel that will give it a lot more depth and more room for my imagination to play! I may still use the original plot too, but only as a secondary and not as the main storyline. Take note that I have changed the book's title to "Sword of the Dragon: The Key of Living Fire."

Hey Scott, I've enjoyed reading your blog. And I think this new title sounds great!

The chief end of man is to glorify God and enjoy Him forever. Amen!

Thanks, Shayna! There is something to be said for a willingness to throw away your work if you can do better, and this was one of those times. *Sniffles*

Oh--don't whine. It's not becoming! he he Really though, a side novelette is a great idea! Some imagination.....

Yes, I like that idea, Jennifer! Since the original idea still fits into the plot I just might do that--if the publisher agrees to it.

"Pleasant words are as an honeycomb, sweet to the soul, and health to the bones." -Proverbs 16:24

In a world where morality is forsaken and Christ neglected, wholesome books are uncommon. The themes of my writing are love, self-sacrifice, and honor.

I see my generation turning from God to the gods of this world. I see homes torn apart in the pursuit of pleasure and self-gratification. Children are murdered by the millions every year . . . without ever seeing the world outside their mothers' wombs. Through fiction I strive to encourage those who are willing, to stand against these things and be heroes and heroines; chivalrous, gentle, full of righteous indignation, and the fear and love of their Creator.
