Notes on Adventures of Jack and Red

    Problems<??>: I guess it's a good idea to go back and re-read some of the early chapters in my story. I just looked at the first chapter and noticed that I had been writing in first person - Jack's perspective - and now I'm not. What do I do about this? Where did it change?
    Okay I see it now. It happened in Chapter IX because I brought the story away from Jack. I didn't notice this because I was coming off a 9-month break in writing. I'd changed my 'perspective'. What do I do now?
    This is the same sort of problem we often have in writing software. We want the program to do some particular thing and the code is becoming too convoluted and/or complex or else it just doesn't work. We have to step back and re-think the problem - think about it in a diferent way - kind of invert your mind, pull the problem inside out and look again.
    But I really like the bit between Jimmy and his Mom.....

Thanks for stopping.
