I have written a little more than half of a book, and I still haven’t found the rhythm. I didn’t even realize this was a thing until yesterday, when I was going back through the pages, trying to figure out what was wrong. It finally dawned on me that the characters are just appearing. They have no depth. Which means, for those of you keeping score at home, that I am going to go back to beginning and work through the first half of the book AGAIN to refine the characterization. The hope is that I find that rhythm and can sail on into deadline. Gaaaahhh. (That’s writer speak for “shoot me now”). Happy Monday everyone!
