Characters! The Bane of My Existence.

Ok, not really. I’m revising my novel. I’ve decided that I’m breaking it into two stories, at least for the time being. I’m trying to tighten up the first half and then the second half, I’ll work on and think of it as a stand-alone story. It seems to be that a lot of novelists write continuing stories in their universe so why can’t I?

For me, my series or universe features a family of cousins, so I don’t see why I can’t write two stories about Isabel, one about Lena, one about Andrew, one with Rachel and Josh? I have a couple of short story ideas with other characters.

It could work. Oh, if only I could finish something and have the confidence to take the next step.

And lastly, I gotta write about a priest going to Confession.  I have a scene where Andrew is basically an ass to Isabel, but he doesn’t realize it till Tomas tells him how, yet again, he’s hurt Isabel. I know priests Confess regularly to another priest, but I can’t fathom what else Andrew would confess? It may be a mystery.
