I just finished editing Chapters 10, 11, 12, and 13 of Part Three. As much as some things need to be cut out, other scenes need to be fleshed out. Some of these scenes read very much like skeletons – containing the minimum to get through the events. Like glorified outlines.
Here’s a paragraph from Chapter 12:
It is frightening how easy it is for Chosen to kill, that it can happen without intention. Did the man deserve to be stopped? Undoubtedly. But permanently? I don’t know anything about him, except he attacked me. Maybe lured me from my home. I didn’t provoke him, didn’t threaten him, didn’t know he was there. I’m different and he attacked me for it. But he’s dead and I can’t hate him.
