Legends of Lorata Update

I have been a been quiet about my fantasy lately.  Really, I have been reading my print copy of Book One and marking it for corrections.  I find it so much easier to edit on paper versus on screen.  Besides being easily distracted by technology, when I have a screen or window open, I feel as though I want to finish quickly, and it is not quite so easy to read carefully.  Seeing the print, I know how careful I need to be, how serious it is that my text be perfect.  I feel that little monster creeping in now and then… that one that tries to make you think that all of your work is utter garbage.  I look at my first edition and think, “I have come so far, worked for so many years… it isn’t terrible.”  Still, I cannot send anything out there that is not exquisite. 

Sure, I have to go back to the computer and fix all the things that I caught in the print version, and that will be time-consuming, but it will be worth it.  The hard part right now is finding the energy.  After a day of work, editing even a few pages is a fight with keeping my eyes open.  It took me years to write, and I can’t help wondering about the great lengths of time that it will take to edit… but I am working on it. 

Book Two is still in the works.  I type a little here and there during the week.  Its has 392 single-spaced pages, and plenty more story to write.  It is coming along, although some days see more writing than others.  No matter what, the story is going on in my mind, and Loracaz and Zarrek are alive and well. 

About Legends of Lorata

Eleanor Willow is the author of the high fantasy series Legends of Lorata, which takes place on a medieval-style world filled with elves, dragons, and faeries. There is also a fourth race, one that is rare and magical: the angelic Starr. Lorata is a distant planet watched over by four deities: good, evil, elemental, and celestial-- and there are plenty of legends about them all! One of the most important ones is the prophecy of Jenh's champion, Loracaz, who is promised to return to the realm whenever evil threatens to take hold. There are currently three books completed, and the first one can be read online. Book four is currently being written, and a fifth will most likely be in the future.
