Like Shadow’s Memories, I have finished the first draft of Through a Dragon’s Eyes, and am using the techniques that I am learning in this class to better understand where I need to focus my editing.
However, unlike Shadow’s Memories, the further I get into this class, the more I realize that I will need to start over from scratch with Through a Dragon’s Eyes. I have really struggled with the assignments for this story, and quickly realized that I don’t even know my own protagonist like I thought I did. It is becoming increasingly clear that the reason I have struggled so much with attempting to edit this story is because I have no real focus.
This is all changed, now. I may need to start over again, but that isn’t a bad thing. The new story will be a much improved version, and one that will make me much happier to tell.
Anyway, here are the dramatic elements that I pulled together for Through a Dragon’s Eyes.
