On a roll at present. Got the POV situation in Who Would Kill A Grandmother sorted out and have now rewritten all of the stuff I had written previously and was unhappy with. The trick was to make the POV characters the drivers of the story and not the watchers. Instead of asking "what happens next?" I ask "what do Tom and Joan do next?" I still have to follow the outline of events in the story but Tom and Joan are now interacting with them and becoming much more interesting as a result.
I'm being distracted a bit by the need to finish my presentation to the Society of Women Writers next week but that in itself is a learning experience which I hope will improve my marketing practices.
