Tidbit of a Beginning

So… I started the rewrite.

I’m calling it Casimir Hypogean until further notice.

And now, for your enjoyment, here are the first few lines:

“…. Mist, pervasive and cloying, settled in between the tall buildings of Casimir’s spiral streets. The fog dimmed the bright advertisements pasted on screens, blurred the shining lamps and ever searching eyes of the security drones. On the far outskirts of the shell, beneath the conical towers of the aeroponic gardens, two shadows were up to no good.  ….”

(Now, to get things going properly, because I got two pages into the first chapter and realized it would work better as the second chapter.  So I restarted the first chapter.  I like it okay so far.)

    I always find the first few lines the hardest to write – there seems to be so much more pressure on them than the rest. Sometimes I just write any old rubbish to get rid of the blank screen/page staring up at me!

    Anyhow, I just wanted to say I really like this! The descriptions conjured up interesting images in my mind without being too much and the line about the two shadows made me want to find out more.

    Good luck with the rest of the rewrite, I hope it all goes smoothly and it brings about many more lines like those. 🙂
