I'm trying to edit my NaNo novel from 2006, but it isn't quite working. I think that one of the places I get hung up is that the only part I've been able to write so far is the subplot dealing with two of my main characters and their angsty relationship. I've decided just to go ahead and write their story as something separate to see if maybe that shuts the boys up. The problem with that is that I'm not sure I'm writing them as masculine enough even for the sort of poised, quasi-Victorian (it's complicated to explain, but the story is space opera that borrows liberally from 19th century Australia and a completely cracked-out history-stew-in-space RPG I used to help mod) gentlemen they're supposed to be.
So anyway. The piece that I'm currently rewriting is a bit long to just slap up on a comm unannounced--twenty four hundred words and counting. Instead I shall ask, does anyone feel like taking a look at this chapter for me when I get finished revising it?
