Okay, you all make me sad by not answering my questions. If I win NaNoWriMo, it’s no thanks to you!
Maybe I won’t even reward you with the full story about Perfect Husband’s torch bearing. The only teaser I’ll give you is… he was one of the ten.
As as side note, I have rediscovered how much I like writing in the first person. All the stories I’ve tried to write in recent years have been in the third person, but as a kid I always wrote in the first person. On a whim, I thought I’d try it again and it’s so much better. I feel so free, just being able to say what was happening and what the protagonist is thinking, without having to stumble over creating coherant sentences full of “he thought that” and “he reflected that” and “he noticed that” and “he held out his hand to him”.
