CampNaNoWrimo has taught two incredibly important things about my writing.
1. Sometimes re-writing is the only way to revise a story.
2. After much whining and hand-wringing, I have to accept that Cassiel really is a historical novel. I’m doing myself a disservice as a writer by copping out with an alternate universe setting. Victorian England, be kind to me. It’s been a while since I’ve delved into your histories.
Much thanks to @alexyuschik and @JennyPerinovic for wise words and reality checks ❤
