With Spider's Web finally complete after many months of ignoring all other potential projects I find myself with a bit of spare time in the evenings. As this simply will not do I plan to launch right into the Next Big Thing, whatever that may be, in the coming weeks. However, while I don't intend to immediately start another installment of Tales from the Green the series has been on my mind so much as of late that I can't walk away completely.
That leads me to my next long-awaited project: a complete edit of The Magic Flute. Over the next few months as time and other projects permit I will be doing a line by line rewrite of the first book of TftG. As this was my first novel and honestly my first serious completed work it is safe to say that my writing style has evolved somewhat since I finished it. Heck, when I wrote that book I was still in my old job in my old apartment with no kid underfoot! It was a veritable lifetime ago!
Consider the original edition as a sturdy skeleton in need of some fleshing out. While I don't intend to make any drastic changes to the plot I will be making changes throughout the length and breadth of the work. I look forward to going through my original world and seeing where I can take it.
