Due West v1.1

Is it just me, or is it harder to start writing than to keep writing….

Anyways, I tackled a revision of the first chapter in a new book I am calling Due West.  It hadn’t survived my writing group, oft referred to as my writing “therapy” group for, well, obvious reasons.  No one could get past the name of my new protagonist: Edward Percival Alford, known to his friends as “EP” and the whole premise, I felt upon reflection, was trite.  Even worse, it received the most damning criticism of “not feeling dangerous enough.”  Spot on if I do say so myself.

Welcome to the stage: Samuel Alford (nicknamed “Guy”) and a significantly more dangerous and thrilling opening to… Due West.
