My problem is that even after 8 months away from the story, I still remember a hell of a lot. Only a couple sections of the new book surprised me. The writing process must have been more intense than usual, because the entire story was etched pretty deep into my mind.
Huvek wasn't like this, and neither was Felix and the Sacred Thor. Those stories I had almost entirely forgotten by the time I did a second draft. This project is so much different, probably because it is so big, and so close to my heart.
This is drafting: everything is there. It just needs to be described and organized better.
I'm in this for the long haul
