Discovering Tora’s voice

Over the past few weeks I’ve been doing a little writing here and there. I haven’t really had time to sit down and write new chapters, so instead I’ve been fine-tuning what I have. In doing so, I’m finally discovering my main character, Tora’s, “voice.” I’m adding description and the musings that go on in her head, and in doing so I’m learning a lot about her. For instace, she’s pretty snarky and can have some major attitude sometimes, especially with someone who’s done her wrong. She can also be quite sweet. And the musings that go on in her head? Well, those can be quite hilarious.

I’m done with the prologue–wow! That took a long time to write! I kept changing things in it, but I’ve finally got it. I’m adding stuff to chapter one and brought back in a character I wasn’t real sure what to do with. First, he started out as boyfriend number one, then just a friend, and then I was thinking about cutting him out entirely. Now, he’s the ex….there simply to make her life miserable. It actually works out much better this way.

I’ve been busy with work (my regular, daytime job) and housework and yard work. I’m itching to get back to book work. My muse is practically dragging me along and I don’t have time to play! It’s quite frustrating.
