I've been writing for a very long time, but this will only be maybe my third time using first person narrative. It's scary, and I'm afraid I'll screw it up, but I'm excited, too, because I really like my brief!

Here’s hoping he hasn’t dropped off into a sleep-deprivation induced stupor yet...

I've sent it to the new address now. Let me know if it still hasn't gotten there.


All good.

The person responsible at my end received a stern talking-to and has promised not to do it again for as long as my current email remains unchanged. It’s hard to argue with that kind of contrition...
Complete and utter NOMsense.

By the way, I found out that the name Carodine has agricultural connotations and gives a good sense of cheer and business acumen. Neat!

In my chapter brief it says two bestselling novels. But in the character sheet there's three. Want us to stick with three I'm guessing?

My biggest problem with the first person is that on the rare occasion I write it Or have to read it, it's present tense. So for the moment, everything is mixed tenses. Some present. some past.
Which is great given the character's situation. LOL Too bad I'm not using to the best advantage. :p :D

Do you want to borrow my cat? She'll probably just like whatever story option involves tuna and naps.

He's written all three by your chapter, but the third is only just coming out and isn't a bestseller (yet). Sorry I guess that wasn't clear.

Cats are simultaneously too picky and not picky enough. That duality is really what Schrödinger was contemplating but he realized that he could not mention his struggles with felines so he made up the bit about quantum states and such.
