I'm... not entirely happy with the way The Shining Walls is shaping up. I like the main idea - not that I've gotten far enough to start exploring that, mind you - but the writing itself is... not off to a good start.
This is, of course, entirely my own fault. Among other things, the project started (and, so far, has been entirely written) in what I can best describe as a state of abject exhaustion. It has also been competing with a couple of other projects for space in my brain. This is no way to write a book. (Lastly, of course, there's the simple and irrefutable fact that since I'm the one writing it, if I think it sucks I have nobody to blame but myself; if I want the story to Not Suck, I need to write better.)
Rather than deleting what I have, I'm going to mark it with a "Version 01" tag and leave it up. Then I'm going to start again at the beginning, and work on version two. I will, of course, be cannibalizing the bits I like from the first version.
In a way, this is good news. After all, it's been a couple of weeks and the project hasn't been abandoned entirely. That's good, right?
