Is it just me, or does this feel like Monday? Hell, I woke up thinking it WAS Monday, so maybe that's why. :shrug: Either way, I'm thoroughly unmotivated today.
You get the picture. I don't feel like doing anything, and that includes flopping on the couch to watch TV or going back to bed. How's that for limbo? I don't feel like doing anything, but I don't feel like doing nothing either. xop
Of course, it probably doesn't help that Sunday night I came to the conclusion that DLN needs a total rewrite from third limited to first person. I even had the snazzy new beginning all planned out in my head as I lay there trying to sleep. Then I fell asleep and by morning the plan was gone. Stupid brain. Anyway, I did manage to remember some of it, and I got the beginning rewritten last night, so it's not all crappadoodledoo.
Okay, enough about me. Time for a quick writerly question:
How would you feel about a book that's written in first POV for the most part but has a few choice scenes in third? Or would it be one of those cases of 'if it's well-written, anything goes'?
Yes. Now snap out of it.ReplyDelete
yep, if it's well written it could be terrific! I can't help you snap out of it. I've been like that for about 2 months now! I will tell you, don't let it take hold on your bound to end up like me!ReplyDelete
I think you have the right of it. If it's well written then you're good to go. I've read some first person books I loathed, while I've read others I've loved.ReplyDelete
LOL Kristen. Will do.ReplyDelete
What Kristen said, Jennifer. I think we both need a little snapping out of it.
I think this is the right POV, Natalie. I'm just wondering if I can pull off a shift to third for some of the flashback scenes. I guess I'll rewrite it and see how the scenes work.
