I've been away (from here) for about four and a half months. I've taken a break from writing, mostly because life gets in the way. Just because I'm not actually putting pen to paper, or fingers to keys, doesn't mean the stories of the characters aren't developing. However, now that I'm here, checking out things that others are doing/asking/saying, I'm starting to think about my writing more. Currently, the novel is in first person, but I'm wondering if maybe I could explore the other characters more if I went with third person. That would mean rewriting essentially the entire thing. I could post an excerpt, but I'm also terrified of finding out that it's not a good story, and it's not intriguing. Any thoughts/encouragements/kicks in the butt y'all can give me?
