I was half way through version 2.0 of this story when I realized that I was telling it from the wrong point of view. The person in the most pain wasn’t the female pirate I was focusing on, but her brother. So, I scratched everything and rewrote it from his point of view. It still involved lots of head banging and brainstorming, and it is still really rough, but I like how it is shaping up. Maybe next draft I can even come up with a better title than “Floating Island.”
I am saddened that I got rid of some of the sense of wonder of approaching a floating island, so I’m going to see what I can add back in.
