An update of sorts.
Unfortunately, the whorehouse piano business has been booming during this crisis, so I haven’t had a ton of time to sit home and write as I had hoped. What’s worse, the writing is coming slower. Maybe it’s just exhaustion, maybe I’m finally hitting a point where I’m going to need editorial or reader input to make significant improvements.
I am adding chapters with other point of view characters. I had originally considered first person, and then a very tight focus on my protagonist, so this is kind of a big deal. I did have one chapter from a dog’s point of view, but otherwise I was having to put my protagonist in any scene I wanted to show the reader, and that was screwing with the storytelling. Once I’ve done this, and an editorial pass to correct for the changes it lets me make, I’ll probably show it to some people either in pieces or as a whole.
Let me know if you’re interested. This would be alpha reader level, before it goes to an editor. I’m paying my editor out of pocket, so I want to hand him the best work I can.
No song quote today, I’m jamming to Joe Satriani and there’s no lyrics.
