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.)
