Hey, I thought today's post was supposed to be about writing? I guess the first paragraph was my attempt at an excuse. I wrote on Friday and finished the rewrite of chapter 1 of Lucy. I added over 700 words to the chapter. I mostly added more descriptive detail of the characters.
Then my procrastinating mind started to think of another idea. I have never written fiction with a first person voice. I've always written in the 3rd person, thee all knowing narrator. My idea had a female character narrating. Then I started thinking about Lucy being written in 1st person. I've heard of people changing their whole novels from 3rd to 1st after the manuscript's been accepted and it sounded like a lot of work. I'm going to try a couple chapters since I think I know Lucy well enough to write in her voice. That's the tricky part, I think, staying in the character's voice and not mine.
We'll see how it goes. Hopefully no one else in the house gets sick. I'm running out of baking supplies.
