Oh crap, I forgot to make a post and just started writing this morning. I’m still playing around with perspective in the story. I can’t sort out what I’m trying to do. I feel like I can get the voice of the characters more accurately in first person, but something is missing. I’ve been rewriting the chapters in 1st person and then rewriting them again in 3rd after that. It’s long and tedious, but I think it’s effective. Hopefully, once I’ve done it in a way I like for a few chapters, I can skip the 1st person rewrite.
I’m also adding so much to the chapters I’m working on and it feels a little overwhelming. That being said, I’ve already written over 70K words, so I think I just have to keep in mind that I can manage this many words.
Next month I have about 9 days off in a row between Christmas and New Year’s and I’m hoping to just stick my head in an MS Word hole and get some significant work done. Which shouldn’t be too much of an issue as long as I don’t get sucked into a Star Wars Battle Front distraction. I make no promises.
I don’t think I have a whole lot other than that going on.
