Greetings all. So my blog is a day late. I had an appointment at hospital I needed to make yesterday and when I got home I wasn’t really feeling like sitting down to write a blog. Still, better late than never! Hope you’re all doing well.
My writing has been going pretty well this last week. I’ve got almost 2000 words done for my Carrion City extension. I’m pretty happy with it. So far it’s all just introductions to the main characters but I think I’m managing to show the reader why these set of characters are involved in the story. I’m pretty excited about the whole thing. I think I do prefer writing in the third person. I feel it opens up more possibilities, to escape the confines on a single characters mind. I always seem to struggle to know when to limit an outside narrator in third person. For example, how much of the authors’ voice is acceptable in third person. Do readers prefer hearing it mostly from the characters perceptions? I guess it’ll be trial and error. When I’m reading, I don’t mind the authors’ voice intruding on the story. There’s some things that need to be told that a character in the story just wouldn’t be able to deliver. Maybe I’m worrying about nothing. What’s everyone’s thoughts on this?
I’ve been thinking of making Only The Dead:An African War free for a couple of days on Amazon. Hopefully this will encourage people to download and review it. Doing this would mean that I need to plan ahead with some promotion on the impending price drop. I just don’t know if I have the time for that right now. It’s something I’ll think about over the next week or so. If I do decide to do this, I’ll be spamming everyone with promotion tweets etc. Sorry in advance should I do this 🙂
Well that’s it from me this week. It’s just a short blog, I’ve got a million things to do today and very little motivation to get them done. Hope you all have a great week. Until next time!
