What a change in perspective (and some Cosmos) can do

As my loyal readers know, I've been having a hard time getting started on my new story. I wrote about 8 pages in the third person, and was pretty bored with it. Then, tonight, after making myself a cosmo and doing some reading (and drinking) on my porch, I started thinking about my story in the first person. And bam! I have an interesting voice to work with.

(A special thanks to my brother, who taught me how to make a killer cosmo when I saw him two weeks ago.) Best Blogger Tips

Bug, cosmos sound like a great addition to the "process"! Congrats on the breakthrough.

Congrats. And methinks you should be sharing the recipe with your loyal readers. ;)

My brother just returned from NYC and he said that's ALL he drank the whole time!
I think any story you write would be awesome from your P.O.V.
Congrats on breaking through that 8 page block!

Hmmmm...I think I should invite myself over for Cosmos and a lesson in the creative process!

Congrats on your breakthrough!

Yes! Cosmos all around the next time any of you are at my house!
