Last night turned out to be a pretty productive session. I churned out 23 pages, 13 more than my daily minimum. I suspect most of it will even make the cut in revision!
I was having a hard time finding the “voice” for my protagonist, a fifteen-year-old girl, mainly because I’m not and have never been one. Thanks to entirely too many Disney tween movies and some sage advice from my wife, I was able to put myself in her mind a little more, and the entire project seems much easier now.
Hoping for continued success today, although I don’t think I’ll be able to get to work until later tonight; life and all its many demands beckons.
The question of the day is, how do you find the “voice” for a character completely different from you?
