Update for the Edit Pass Live: Just got past what I feel is enough of a milestone to post the next task list.
Most of what I’ve done is the worldbuilding, but I’ve also fallen down a couple of worldbuilding rabbit holes where I added info that is most likely completely irrelevant to any part of the story or the characters in it. Still, hopefully it helps me round things out in my head. And it was fun — let’s never forget that part.
So here is the new task list, updated with what still needs to be done:
Completed! See the original list here. I haven’t included it in this post mostly for clarity, but if you’re keeping score at home, that’s where to find it.
In addition to those, I also did a full history of H. Country in the past couple of hundred years, and a comprehensive biology of the non-human species, plus origin story of their people (both true and rumoured). I also ended up rewriting a few of the characters not on the list below.
Some changes are definitely going to require me to change some entire plot points, but then I always knew that was going to be the case.
The remainder of these still need doing, however.
Characters who Need Fixing
- Collate all my notes; split into categories so I can easily reference them
- Create new outline
Side note: I really should have collated my notes a lot earlier; it’s going to be much harder now that I’ll definitely forgotten what the heck I was talking about. But hey, since when have I ever made good choices that will make things easier for myself?
