Writing in Public: Day 29, Month 03

The rough draft of the Spindles Fairy Tale story is finished. Around 2,976 words were written today, all focused on this particular tale. I’ve decided to go with a more modern take on the Chinese Fairy Tale “Help in Need.” I had to rework the protagonist a few times. Originally it was going to be a real member of the Hong Kong Defence Force, but I settled on a fictional individual who worked closely with the real member. It made plotting a little easier, and kept me from accidentally getting the real member’s personality and ambitions wrong.

The deadline is tomorrow, so I will need to work quickly on revisions. I already know where I want to go with it, but I expect it to take most of the day to complete.
