Especially love #5. When I told a decades-long time friend that I was going to write a story, he got on his soapbox about first person perspective. I think he’s still on that soapbox, several months later. The noise he made about Teh Rulez got into my head so deeply that I haven’t been able to put any thoughts together. I’ve been writing my way around what I thought I would write about. I’m working hard at breaking down the mental barriers, including this weird proclamation about adhering to the rules of 1st person perspective, active verbs, comma usage. Blah. Who gives a f*ck. Hang the Rules. Free the heart and soul.
