Hunter and Hunted is my first novel, and I was pleased with how the first version turned out. I had originally included two additional characters, the ancient Greek gods, Artemis, goddess of the hunt, and Dionysus, god of wine. They hovered above the adventures of the human characters, observed, evaluated, and commented on the action, somewhat as the Chorus did in ancient Greek plays.
As the first version neared completion I took some chapters to a writing workshop to get a professional evaluation. The teacher, a well-established and well-known fiction writer, was not encouraging. “These Greek gods, what are they doing in here? They detract from the story. They’re confusing to the reader. I advise stripping them out.” The other students in the class agreed.
