Notes on Writing: Throwaway Chapters for Works in Progress

Later than I wanted, but I finished my edit of the next chapter of the "Year 2038 Bug" novel. It is posted on our website, link below.

This was a tough chapter to work on and I'm not sure if it will stay in the final book. I did find the writing better than I remembered but it is very rough and I allowed myself to preach too much in this chapter. However, I needed to write this down so I could define a character's motivation for moving forward. I found out some things and I have a better idea of how the character, Gabrielle, will react in the future.

I will say that this chapter is rough and an example of a novel in progress so for other writers perhaps this may help to see the process I am going through and I hope my notes are helpful.
