Saw The Empire of Corpses (2015) for the first time on foxtel’s World Movies this arvo. It was meh, but one of the protagonists was a female automaton. Her name was Hadaley Lilith. I had a quick chuckle.
Started on Tyla, the next 100 verses in the series. This time, I am looking to tighten up a lot of loose writing. Tyla I-III has set the standard which I really liked. I am hoping to carry it through.
Tyla IV-VII was started but I didn’t like it (too loose, and it felt a drop in standard in comparison to the first three verses posted). I’m deciding whether to rewrite or start anew or shorten it to a standard 3 verse per output as originally intended. The latter option is a writing discipline mode worth employing if wanting to move the story along.
Writing can be broken down into simple steps that can be likened to paint by numbers. But where is the passion in that? Where is that moment when a scene, or a character, grabs you and you become subsumed into the scene or character?
