I thought what I’d do is I’d share some writing with you. This is the first chapter of something I wrote five and a half years ago. I just re-read the entire thing this afternoon, and while it’s not tidy, and would need a hell of a lot of editing that I’m not game for at the moment, I think the premise isn’t bad, not that you get much of an idea from this… But what do I know?
The entire thing suffers from a problem all my writing suffers from and which would be one of the main things to clean up in editing: things start in the past tense but shift into the present mid-stream as I get into the scene myself. It reads poorly, but it’s incredibly easy to fix in an edit.
Anyway, here is the first chapter of Kazuma at Dusk.
