This is the second attempt at typing this. The first one quit unexpectedly with the help of IE. Thanks so much. But sometimes I have a clue. I hit the print screen button and was able to open a view of it before it closed in Photoshop. So this is the retype:

I have been thinking about POV lately. How much weight to give the narrator in my story. Layers of the narrative have been pinging me lately. This is Trapper's story, but really only the narrator in the story. It's view of Trapper. From me. Political narrative, where the stories have been truly shocking lately, to recent news and how news dribbles out to reveal the horrible whole, and many of those, to the personal.

I just went through my chapters, organizing the layers. I don't know how writers keep track. That is so difficult, with backups and corrections, paper copies, and those saved in multiple places. Each reveals a little. Gathering the bits seems the challenge. I wonder if writers use one long Word document, or individual chapters I have so much to learn.

A poem line came to me yesterday. Don't know when I will use it, but it is sticking. That is a good sign.

Have a great day.
