It has been a while, so I feel as though I owe you an update on Mastering the Elements.
I wrote a draft of MTE that was over 191k words long. The reason you are not reading them at this moment. They were crap.
The plotting of that iteration of MTE was 10 years old, and my skills in the craft of writing have vastly improved since its creation. Rather than forcing out a reactive plot structure, I have reworked the plot for the rest of the series.
I apologize for the delay, but I can say unequivocally, this version will be worth reading. Currently, the new draft is at about 15k words and counting. I promise to get MTE to you as soon as possible.
Thanks for your patience!
