The Lost Chapters
Hi, my name is Patrick Matthews. I’m the author of Dragon Run.
During the course of writing a novel, a lot of the story ends up not making it into the final book. There are many different reasons for dropping a scene, and not all of them are “it wasn’t good enough.”
Here are some of my lost scenes, along with a little writer's commentary before each one. Whether you're a fan of the book looking for a little deeper insight into Al and his friends, or a writer curious about my process, I hope you enjoy them.
Thanks for reading, and please let me know what you think!
