It was a strange Thursday. Rough day at the Day Job, lots of stress, and a little disappointment that the day job issue kept me from getting to the post office. Well, the story will get out on Friday after I drop the kids off at school.
No writing done in the evening, no editing. I reviewed Black Violas, considering it for my next edit project, but I don’t know if I’m ready. I’m reading it, I like it, there are obvious places where the writing itself needs to be fixed, but I don’t know what to do about the story itself. I had a thought that first person would suit this one better, and since I had that many times while writing it, I think I need to try that route. I also had a thought of swapping the MC from the daughter to the mom. Their roles seem to be interchangeable as I have it now in the story. If I reverse their roles and the troubles they’ve experienced, it might come out more emotional. And I suddenly notice I’ve gravitated toward older characters in my writing.
