Writing fiction is hard. So far I have managed to write the target amount of words but I fear that I am writing myself in circles. I think I’ve made a mistake. I started writing in the first person. This wasn’t planned, it just happened. Now, I am trying to find ways to tell the story when I can only provide information seen through the eyes of one person, or at least one person at a time.
It also seems to be forcing me to write as if the story is unfolding in real time. Now I know why so many people put headings in their novels like “one month later”. Whatever happens it’s certainly going to be an interesting learning experience.
