The time has come for the great rewriting project. The attempt to make Sympathy readable... perhapes even kinda good. I'm not holding my breath, but here is the schedual I have planned out in my head.
October 2012: All the prepwork I should have done going into this project. Despite the fact that this story has been floating around my head for well over a decade, it was a mish-mash of thoughts, ideas and vauge notions. It was going to be a great novel.... didn't know anything about it except that it was going to be great.
Well it's exists. It will get better. It might even be good. I would settle for good.
Characters need to be rounded out.
Rules need to be established concerning angels, immortality and Death.
Might even write an outline... we will see.
November 2012: Chapters 1-5
December 2012: Chapters 6-10
January 2013: 11- 15
February 2013 15-20
March 2013: 21-25
April 2013: 25-30? Or whatever is left.
Six months. I think it's doable. But we will see how reality plays out.
