>Well, I’ve read over most of the story (it’s missing about 50 pages… something I’m rather annoyed about. It’s alright, I recall what happens, but it still annoys me.), and it’s got a good, solid base, and the two main characters don’t suck.
I’ve whipped out my purple and green pens , and have marked the first page all to hell.
I think I’m going to work this chapter by chapter. There’s a lot of infodumping, so I’m going to have to streamline that a good bit, and some stuff that comes right out of a bad Mary Sue fanfic. I DID write this four years ago, after all.
It’s salvageable, and I’m getting excited about the story all over again.
My basic Plot:
An assassin seeks to slay the man who destroyed her life, only to discover more dangerous quarry awaits. She stays her hand, and they work together to defeat a common enemy. She must face her demons… not only those that haunt her soul, but those who wear flesh and blood bodies.
It’s a story of redemption and facing the past.
Cliche? Perhaps. I think it will work, though. After all, if I refused to write anything cliche, I wouldn’t so much writing at all.
