weirding woes

So. Here I am, ~5000 words into the story, and I realize it is only going to work if it is first-person from Amaris' pov. Which will involve getting both more and less into her head as a character. On one hand, I get to make her prejudiced (as only makes sense in the setting) which I only realized today is Kind Of Important.

I am pantsing this story, so that shall be my excuse :)   Now off to redo 9 pages....


  1. Hahaha, you call pantsing an 'excuse', I call it my 'way of life'. ;)

    How old is Amaris supposed to be?

    1. ~10 though neither she nor others would think of her as a child. One grows up fast in a city like this, which is sadness all its own.

    2. Hmmm, from your earlier snippets, I was guessing about 12, so yeah, I'd totally buy that she's an 'old' 10 ;)
