I need to figure out how to do the DW link to LJ link thing.

Anyway, the Bear:

A funny thing I've noticed. As I've become more secure in my craftswomanship, I've become a lot more slapdash in the sort of construct I am willing to call a draft. I mean, this one I have here needs an entie timeline ripped out and made into something else, and it needs several entire scenes written, and it's missing a denouement... but then again, I also understand now, as I did not ten years ago, exactly how much rewriting and reconstructing is going to go into making that second draft work on a structural level.

When I grow up, I wanna be like her.

Contemplating the huge question of: 1st POV vs 3rd POV.

I've come to realise that it's not the POV that I struggle with, it's the tense.

I don't want to write The Pathmaker (which needs a goddamn better name) in first. Not sure my protag's up for it -- or rather, she's up for it, but I don't think she is.

Moreover, I started out thinking that The Pathmaker was somebody else's story...

Hopefully I can spend the next month and a half pondering these questions.

I may delete everything I've written thus far in the journal. Why not? I'll probably write it again sometime in the next month anyway. I'll just keep the sentences I like and see how it goes or something like that.
