I finished the first chapter of the Pandora Excess fiction on which I’m working. I thought I had finished it earlier, but then I decided I wanted at least 2,500 words per chapter . . . for reasons. In filling the chapter out I both elongated the action scenes and added some character growth.
Character growth? In fiction inspired by Borderlands? What heresy is this?
Well, remember those SPOILER ALERT! Echo recordings found during the course of Borderlands 2? What would you call those? Character growth, I’d say. Now, that growth had happened before the events of Borderlands 2, but the chapter I’ve finished is also past tense, so all’s fair.
On to chapter 2.
In case you were wondering, chapter 1 is titled “Lodgings.”
