Wednesday Writing

My writing seems to have slowed down lately. There have been a lot of interruptions, as well as chores that need done around the house. I'm blaming some of my lack of production on the oppressive heat. We are having the sort of temperatures that we usually have in August! Guess summer decided to start off with a blaze!

The main WIP that I've been trying to complete is over three quarters finished~so I should be able to wrap it up in another month. If I get with it and actually do some writing! I have another WIP that I started in first person, but now I'm debating on changing it to third. I'm not very experienced in first person and I spend a lot of time worrying about using past, present, and future tense.

Is first person a problem for any of you? Do you know of any easy 'tricks' to keeping yourself in the correct tense?

I'm liking third best. But a deep POV as I really like to get into a character's head.
Yay on how far you are! Keep at it and I hope to see you celebrating in a month or so!

Keep up the good work. I don't know of any tricks to tell you, but I wrote 'Lucy of Tuppers Hollow' in first person and I really liked it that way. I haven't been writing much either, lately.
