Good morning from sunny Vermont. It’s supposed to get quite hot and humid today–the more the better, that’s what I say! Meanwhile, I’ve a bit of news. My contract is signed, and if I’ve read it right, Quill Point should be out by February or thereabouts. I’m waiting for my editor to send me first round changes. Frankly, I’ve forgotten what I’ve written, so it will be like reading my book for the first time.
A happy Father’s Day to all those dads reading my blog. I hope you have an excellent day getting lots of grateful hugs and lovely phone calls.
Stella Ramone continues to develop. I have to decide quickly if I’ll be writing “She claimed the odd shaped room on the first floor as her office, because it was the only free space left in the building, and it had a sweet view of the little courtyard next to the cafe. Sometimes she saw birds and chipmunks.” Or, “I claimed the odd shaped room…”
Do I write in first person or in third? Do I really want to slip into a character with some hard knocks under her belt? Or is some distance required so that I don’t get too emotionally involved? Each perspective has its merits. No decisions yet; I guess I’ll just keep writing and see what happens.
With that, I wish you all a good week. I leave you with a photo of where I’ll be in 27 days. Check back next week for another segment of Finding Home.
