Thought I'd share a little something with you. And also share my state of mind at the moment. And while I'm at it, ask for a little advice.
My current WIP is told from the point of view of two sisters (and a third a little down the track too), in third person. I feel like I'm wasting precious time because every time I switch perspectives, I have to re-read a few of their chapters to get their voice back in my head.
I have all my chapters planned out so I know what's going to happen. You might think it would be easier to just write the parts of each sister separately, but, in fact, it's not at all. The reason for this is, that the end of every chapter marks one step closer to finding their father (whom they are searching for), and if I haven't written each step of the journey, and haven't felt what they are feeling, I can't develop their emotions effectively.
Any ideas on how I can get around this? (Also, any advice on how to avoid multiple personality disorder? LOL)
