Yes, I’m doing it again.
I’m working on an idea I had a couple of years ago. It began with this sentence: He’d been intending to eat the kitten.
But why, Tessa? Why would you write such a thing? You love cats!
I do love cats. And – spoiler alert – he doesn’t eat the kitten. (OR DOES HE.) (He doesn’t.)
This is my first time writing from a boy’s perspective, and so far it’s been fine – probably because he’s prepubescent. Teenaged boys confuse me. My son is almost 16 and I am baffled by him on a daily basis.
It’s also the first time I’ve worked with a dual perspective: the kitten-eating boy and the girl who hears voices.
There are a bunch of ways I could go with this, but since I’m a pantser, I have no idea which one I’ll choose.
