I’m now completely finished writing chapter 11 . I finished last night completing the last section off with 1211 words. All together the full chapter ends with 4636 words . The overall 2nd draft so far is now at 32969 words. I am now considered in the First Pinch Point–Midpoint of the novel( I will talk more about my reservations and worries of this in one of my next post)
I’m reconsidering a lot since I fully finished this chapter . One thing I reconsidered since I added the last scene to the chapter is changing the chapter name to Stealing Hearts.
Why did I change it?
Because the last scene I wrote to my opinion is a very impactful scene that I feel drives the story further. This scene was also in my 1st draft and I leave most of it intact in this 2nd draft .
The last scene that I wrote is a reveal scene. And everybody likes a reveal scene , right?
In this scene it is through the eyes of Adrian, one of the love interest of the main character Sirena. This is the moment he finds out Sirena is not human at all but one of them . A Caninruh werewolf.
With this reveal he is both confused, amazed and frightened . Because he sees powers displayed from a werewolf he has never seen before as Sirena astral projects her Caninruh beast and literally starts to steal the hearts of the crowd while dancing with her friend and dance partner. He hurriedly rushes to stop her but can’t .
I leave the scene open ended . Like Sirena is lethal and she doesn’t even know it. But now the only one that knows it is Adrian.
He is definitely going to use this knowledge about the truth of Sirena to his advantage against Cristen in order to become Alpha of the yearling pack.
Well you’ll see. I will keep you updated as I proceed with the remaining chapters.
