SOMETHING SINISTER:  A  NEW  SCENE  FOR MY  CHAPTER 13 AND  ITS  CHANGES

So I’m sure that you know revising  your novel is hard and that things change throughout each draft.

I  have  recently dived into my 13th  chapter of my 2nd  draft of my work in progress werewolf novel .  And the  first scene  of the chapter  is very  different right now  . Completely  and entirely  different from  my 1st  draft with  a word count of 803 words so far  .  

The  1st scene of my 13th  chapter  in my  1st  draft was a  training scene  involving my main character and the rest of the yearling werewolves.

This time around in my current 2nd draft  it’s  a search scene involving  main character Sirena and  her friend  Eli who is a main  supporting  mortal  character within the novel.

In the  1st draft Eli wasn’t a main supporting character and  he didn’t  travel with main character Sirena up the  mountain.   In fact  Sirena  doesn’t   even mention the werewolves to him in the first draft .  

A lot  happens in this 2nd draft  in this scene  .

There  is an  interaction of sorts  with  Sirena and  the  earthdiver. ( you can  find out what an earthdiver  is here)  But in the 1st draft  there  is  really no interactions between  her  and the earthdiver .  In this draft within this scene  she starts hearing  the  earthdiver in her  head the same  way Cristen  hears him throughout my  novel. 

In this scene Eli and Sirena  will get  separated.  I thought at first I would  separate them due to the storm but it will be the presence of the werewolf antagonists  that will  separate  them.   I  just  finished this particular  point  within the 803  words  and at this  moment   where I stopped  writing Eli  turns  around and sees  something as  Sirena   screams out in pain,  due  to the  earth diver trying to awaken her werewolf powers early. 

I  stopped  right there .  Cause I’m  kind of stuck.  The werewolves in my novel  immediately attack  mortals.   Eli is a mortal  but I don’t want him to  die.  I don’t know if I want him to run away .   However,  that wouldn’t be in  his character  . He  wouldn’t just leave Sirena  there.   I’m thinking I want  Adrian the love interest to appear  and like  knock him out so the other werewolves  won’t  attack him . Adrian has  on the divers mud so he won’t  attack Eli. 

He doesn’t want to help  him. He wants to help Sirena.  Maybe Sirena   leaves Eli  out of fear of the wolves.   But  that would be out  of character  for her as well. But  maybe  that would  work  because  that  will be something that Sirena is wrestling with. Leaving her friend behind.  But we’ll  see.  Things might change once again though.
