Good morning. Still tired from the weekend and desperately trying to garner up some energy. I have some news, the publisher I submitted Wrapped Around Your Finger to has requested the full manuscript, so I'm excited about that.
After some thinking, I've decided to change up my current WIP. I began a BDSM contemporary a little over a week ago and I've decided to switch it to first person POV. I think with the content being darker and more emotional, I need to tell it through the characters directly. It's knew for me and I'm still getting the hang of it, but what I've discovered is that the emotion just flows. With third person, I always found myself going back during edits to add more introspection and emotion because I tended to focus on dialogue and scene direction. I actually had to make an effort to put myself into the character's head to really get their thoughts and feelings to come across. With first person POV, it's automatic. I'm not sure if it's because it's new or because it seems to keep me in the character's head, no effort required. Something to think about.
I'll leave you with your weekly dose of eye candy. Jared Padalecki is just yummy and I love my boys good and dirty.
