The tentative plan is to write the first person noir thriller I've been kicking around for the past few months. I have several reasons for doing this:
- Get your eyerolls ready. I feel like I need to step out of my comfort zone to grow as a writer. I've never written more than a chapter of anything in first person. This will be a challenge for me. Like writing 50k in a month isn't a challenge...
- While I like what I've written of The Kickoff so far, it doesn't feel like the story I should be telling right now. Also, I think I should sell Bullet's Don't Blink, or at least get closer to doing so, before I spend a month of my life pounding away at the sequel.
- Since I just read The Little Sister by Raymond Chandler, I really want to write a first person noir just so I can pepper it with snappy dialogue and inventive similes.
