Writing Fiction: Update

Finished the read-through and frankly, I’m not bowled over by it.  I had hoped that the contrast between elderly woman and young female comedian would be stronger, but in some of the chapters their characters just disappear.  The comedienne, bright and perky in one scene, becomes a bit flat in another; the elderly woman becomes a mouthpiece.  Also, the story contains flashbacks to when the older woman was young and there is a bit of similarity between them there.  It’s fixable.  But it does mean I have yet another list of tasks.  Nine, this time.  Typically involving making a character more distinct or fixing an anomaly in the way the chapters are now arranged.  I have a slight marathon-runner’s fatigue, but, it seems far to near the end to give up now.  I’ll let you know.
