AYE AYE CAPTAIN!
AYE AYE CAPTAIN!
Something a little more personal.
Since my move to California, there had been a lot of self-doubt about my level of talent and whether or not I should have made the choices I’ve made leading up to this point. As I’ve said in this, even when it seems as though everything’s not going well, life has a way of turning things around when you work hard enough to make that happen.
Even though what I’m saying is pretty much general knowledge, I made this more for myself than anyone else…but it’s something I hope someone could look at now and later. To remind themselves of their potential, whether they believe they have it or not. I myself still have a ways to go, but I continue creating art and remaining more hopeful than ever.
I could definitely relate to this. Slowly but surely, however, I’m learning how to keep my head up and just keep working until I accomplish what I want to accomplish.
Your cast are between the ages of five and ten. School has been canceled due to snow. Their parents have bundled them up in their woolies and shoved them out the door so the kids won’t go stir crazy. How do they use the day? Grand scale snowball fight with your antagonists? Forage for big sticks as walking staffs and go on an adventure through the snowy woods? Dare each other to lick flagpoles?
You can either do the flashback in a past perfect tense, or just specify that you’re going into flashback mode beforehand and continue using past tense. I would recommend the latter option, because past perfect is a pain in the ass to maintain over a lengthy chunk of prose.
