Well, it's the start of a new day and I find I'm brimming with ideas to flesh out the characters and the premise of the story. I'm attending a Donald Maas workshop this weekend in Albequerque, so I've been rereading both his book and workbook on Writing the Breakout Novel. One of the ideas that is floating around is that of playing against type where the characters are concerned; another deals with the premise: what the book is really about. Which, in reality, is nothing more than discovering what it is that I have to say by writing this book.
More later...off to vote.
