What would be the best way to pursue this? The way I write is using sub-chapters. I am writing in the present tense with a boy as he bumbles through the woods and he is thinking back to when he ventured into a section of the forest where his father had forbidden him to go. So here is a super condensed way of putting it: 1Little Derek was moving through the tree line, holding the stick he'd picked up along the way. His father had forbidden him to go into the woods North of this small copse. Daddy had taken him deer hunting twice before. 2Derek had only intended on going a few hundred yards into the woods, but quickly became disoriented and ended up completely lost. The towering spruce trees overhead blocked out the path of the sun and as he attempted to work his way out of the canopy he was actually venturing even deeper into the forest. Disregard any grammar and focus on the structure. Does it make sense to do this? Any other suggestions?
