I Know Your Real Name Now - Initial Thoughts on Chapter 2

If you’re interested in reading first drafts of this story as I write it, let me know and I’ll send you individual chapters. Sometimes my morning pages” make it into the drafts, and sometimes they don’t, so send me an email or tweet if you want longer drafts. Chapter 2 will be ready in a few days, and I wanted to get some notes down here.

If you don’t want to know anything about the plot or the book itself, definitely skip this post.

So, I posted about each character a few weeks ago, but I didn’t really explain what actually happens in chapter 1. To sum up: there are four characters in the story, and they’re on the way to the last dance in high school. In chapter 2, they enter the dance and immediately separate. So, in chapter 1 you get the rapport between the four characters, and in the second chapter you see them on their own, with different friends.

Not much happens in chapter 2 either. It’s equal parts a World building” chapter by adding some new characters and showing off the setting in the first third of this book, as well as a way to move the pieces into place for chapter 3. Chapter 3 is where the big thing happens that fuels the entire act.

I want some Hi-C now.
