WEEK SEVEN: WRITE YOUR NOVEL THIS SUMMER
It’s all a matter of perspective. At least it is when it comes to my scenes this week for Aaralyn’s Song. I’m experimenting with 1st person, past tense for my protagonist and 3rd person, past tense for the other POV chapters. Taking this route leads to the necessary adjustment of my outline because I want to make sure the right person’s POV is depicted for that particular scene. It’s been an interesting challenge. I wonder if I should write the antagonist in 3rd person, present tense. Maybe even switch up my protag’s POV to 1st person, present tense, too. Obviously, I need to take into account the flow of the story and see if this method works. That’s the cool thing about the drafting stage. Anything is possible.
Last week, I was eager for the weekend, to take time off from writing. That’s not to say I’m not eager for this weekend.
I. Am. So. Very. Ready. For. The. Weekend.
It’s been that kind of week.
But with all this new interest sparking the synapses in my cranium, I’m excited to keep writing. I did promise myself at least a day off per week, but at least this time around, if I want to write this weekend it’s because I’m ready to push forward rather than playing catch up from the week’s craziness.
How about you? Are you working for the weekend?
Definitely aiming to enjoy the weekend, even with the gray skies overhead. Catching up on my writing is a must; but indulging on festivities in town will be a nice distraction, too.
Distractions can be fun, especially if they get you back into better writing spirits. 🙂
