I did add a few more scenes to humanize Elisa, the main character, and I am slowing down the pacing of events. Plus, I plan on talking to my friend who is a sociologist about ethnographies and historians, to do some actual research into that discipline.
Elisa needs to step up her academic analysis. Otherwise, she is a fake.
That's all I got because I woke up at 4a.m., and I am dragging this morning. I have been hitting my writing hard every day, which is an amazing feat. Still, I have to finalize grades, so I can revise my summer syllabi and get on with my novel The Harvest. (Speaking of that other writing love, I have to ask my friend's son if he wants to design the cover of my novel. That young man is an amazing artist. How old school is that? For sure.)
Do what you love, hard, like you are ever-bored in the barrio. #Resist
