aaaand . . . . switch!

What’s obnoxious: writing 1761 words of a story and then deciding they really needed to be in first person, rather than third.

What would have been more obnoxious: making that decision even later, so I had to re-do even more of it.

(This is not, for the record, And Ashes Lie. It’s something else that I’ll talk about later.)

    It could have been worse, you might have had 20K, rewrote 12K, and then realized it ought to be in first person. 😀

    *nods* Yes, obnoxious indeed!

    Had a similar one where, trying to open a short story, got to about a thousand and a half words, then realised the story actually wanted to start at a later scene *sigh*

    Well, yes, I do agree with my muse’s suggestion, but having just ‘unpacked my case’ I then had to ‘repack’ and move on – what fun!
