Black Alchemy Hero – Lost

I can’t say that I learned much from writing this chapter. I’m presently on chapter 20 (I believe) of Cullinan Diamond Hunter and Leonardo and Kode have yet to interact. I intend to add more depth to their relationship and make fewer references to Barcode. 8 – LOST Kode and Leonardo hike up a long, muddy path. Fallen branches and large stones make the road difficult to navigate, but the men move quickly, like soldiers trained to endure these conditions. They travel through complete darkness with the sounds of various creatures…

Black Alchemy Hunter – Truth

The Yellow Diamond Hunter series was meant to have a lot of comedy. I don’t know where I lost that along the way. This chapter was my intent to really bring back the comedy. Yet again, I chose a more “cheesy superhero” route, which I don’t particularly enjoy. I’d probably sell a lot more books and make more money, but I just don’t care for this style too much. It’s way too predictable in my eyes. I’ve taken a more organic route recently. Just two days ago, I wrote Chapter…

Black Alchemy Hunter – Obstacles

Here, I united all parties and made an uncomfortable situation for Sol. I decided to avoid this altogether in the remake. For Cullinan Diamond Hunter, I’ve decided to keep the stories separate. Julius does his thing while Sol independently meets with Greer. This produces a more organic relationship. Also, I really didn’t like how I remade Absolute. I actually love how it was remade, but Greer is really attached to Absolute, so to have him pack up and rebuild was a bit out of character. I’m presently working on keeping…

Black Alchemy Hunter – Blind Trust

There’s not much to say here. Rereading this chapter made me realize that it didn’t hold much of a purpose. I will definitely have to work on giving each scene a purpose from here on. 6 – BLIND TRUST Thousands of people wait impatiently outside of Ordinance. Twice per year, the province practices fleeing the province. The citizens know to regroup in safe zones just outside of the main city, but no one is happy to endure their first real life drill in seven years. This area is under twenty-four…

Black Alchemy Hunter – RE+ASSEMBLY PART 2

Here, I reintroduce Sol’s friends, Morrigan and Circe. I really wanted them to have larger roles in this story, but I didn’t know how to work that in. I’ve decided to give Morrigan a much stronger role in Sol’s portion of Cullinan Diamond Hunter. I don’t intend to develop another love triangle, but I’ve already made it clear that she has a thing for Sol, so I’m not going to mask that. Her feelings for Sol will be very evident, but Rayne isn’t the type to compete over a guy,…

Black Alchemy Hunter – First Fire

This chapter had a few mistakes in it. I threw characters at readers, which is something that I never do. I also gave Rayne and Sol a pre-established relationship, when I prefer to draw out relationships. Still, I was able to experiment with Sol’s powers and Rayne’s kindness. Now, I know that I want to strengthen her dark side. 4 – FIRST FIRE The burning bins of Ordinance continue to light the streets and alleyways. However, the orphans that plague the darkness cannot be found in their normal hideouts. Crouching…

Black Alchemy Hunter – RE+ASSEMBLY PART 1

This was the only way I could think of to reunite everyone from Yellow Diamond Hunter into one place. I searched for a reason to get them in one location, working together. From this process, I learned that everything doesn’t have to be so “cookie cutter.” My new route is to continue with the unique structure that built the Barcode Series. I have decided to run two (and a half) arcs. We’ll follow Sol’s story from the moment that he meets with Rayne, Julius and Kami as they discover a…
