So.... It's happening...

So far I've written two or three chapter one versions none of which I particularly like / found some sort of fault with it.

My first inclining was to write it from multiple perspectives. (As in we learn EVERYONE'S story and get a brief introduction of (mostly) EVERYONE)

But I realize that really murders the suspense of 'who are these people' in a 'who-dun-it' - styled horror story.
So now I'm probably going to write it from one person's perspective. (Third person limited omniscient.)
Still toying around with first person, not 100% sure how it'll turn out.

It's kind of a drag because of how interesting I find all of the characters and how much work I put into describing each person's particular situations and how I'll have to figure out when it's appropriate to reveal this information / when it's not... :/ I suppose it can only be a benefit - having complicated characters!

That and I've already gotten rid of an entire love-arc that I had between two characters in order to focus on another one mostly spurred around the fact that I've decided to SWITCH who I thought the -main- character was going to be in the first place. (le gasp)
I'm still not sure I like the reason why I switched main characters... For he was (and still is) gay and I figured that's something less relatable to most people and could serve as a barrier for people 'inhabiting' or 'putting themselves in his place' so I made the switch to having the story told from Emily's instead of Kyle's perspective... Which still has me having an 'ehhh.....' feeling in the pit of my stomach.

There's also the -slight- issue of transitioning from Playwriting to Novel writing and now back to Playwriting.
It's significantly harder than I thought it would be. Very unused to writing so much around dialogue instead of -just- dialogue. Hence why I'll probably have to finesse the style a couple more times before Chapter 1 is where I'll be satisfied with.

---

In other news I had a complete splash of inspiration from left field for a more fantasy-ish novel.
All I have? An image and a fragment of backstory.

What that'll lead to? Who knows! :)

:iconlawooplz: You're alive, dude! I'm so glad you haven't turned into a zombie!

Same here(I think). I just finished my last essay for the semester, though!

Well... I wouldn't go that far. I fear I'm definitely exhibiting some zombie-like symptoms. Pale skin, vacant eyes and expression, the desire for sustenance be it brains or otherwise...

As for me... I have to wait until the 19th/20th for my exams. Which means a lot of procrastination. YAAAAAAAAAAAAY! ... Haha... Hehe... ;-;
