10.27.15 A List of my Lately

My cousin (center) came to visit my sister and I a few weeks ago.
I've been writing:
Philosophy paper about the ontology of fictional characters.
Politics paper about the cultural shift from a print based world to a visual based world and the implications on public discourse.
A speech advocating for domestic adoption.
Things I plan to write:
Letter to best friend--we rarely text, and we try to write letters.
WIP rewrite--haven't touched it in a long time, but I'm almost 1,500 words in.
Blog posts--I've got some cool ideas, and I'm going to try to get them written down.
Things I've found at goodwill:
Pink pants
Ann Taylor LOFT sweater
Jeans that I don't have to roll up!
Things I've gotten excited about:
My new skirt from my friend Hannah Everly
Learning how to do aerials in swing dancing
The fact that my pet fish is still alive. To be perfectly honest, I expected it to die fairly quickly.
Things I've been reading:
Peter's speech to the priests in Acts chapter 4.
Paul's prayer for the church of Ephesus in Ephesians chapter 1.
What has your lately looked like?

    1. Hi, Tesh : ) It's a unique time in life, and God is teaching me a lot. The college I attend/live at is 8 to 9 hours from my home. What are you studying?

Writing a Book With Two POVs and a Linear Timeline

I've never been one to write an "easy" story.

Even the project I'm working on now, one I began almost four years ago, was one of complex construction. Mainly, this book was made up of two side by side points of view. Two different characters told two different stories that only intertwined at crucial points throughout the plot. Before I even began, I knew that it would be a difficult story to write without causing mass confusion. 
I'd never written a story anything like this before (and even now, I'm editing to change one of the storylines completely), but I knew one thing:  {My time-line could never back-peddle.}

This would prove an annoying decision, but one that drastically improved my story. Every story is different, but I can outline the logistics of what I did to make this linear timeline possible. 
First, decide your primary main character. With two stories, not just two perspectives on the same story, your story will appear to have two main characters. You…
