How Do You Choose

I like to use this blog as a space to interact, not to preach. So here is the question…when do you choose first over third narrator. I currently have an adult contemporary novel that I am editing the crap out of (literally) and I have two separate versions of the draft.

I’m Back

Hey….Wordpress World….It’s been a while.

I now have two wonderful little girls who demand most of time when I am not teaching and, for a time, had to make that my priority. Family always comes first. This past year has taught me a lot about balance

So here I am again. I think I can…I think I can…I think I can…
