Theme and Structure for ‘An American Elf’

That’s what I’m trying to hammer out.  I have stories stacked up like pancakes needing my attention for one reason or another.  I have to keep them in priority.  But, it’s been fun to divert to An American Elf for a while.  I’ve almost got the Theme articulated.  The structure will be easy after that.  Then, I can set aside and get back to the top of the priority list, which is A Vintage Heart.  In fact, I picked up An American Elf to give myself an emotional break from it.  One thing I’ve learned so far with An American Elf is that it’s going to be a big story and I’m going to take my time.  I don’t see me even getting the first draft down for another year.  I think I’m going to really enjoy the process though.  It’s cool.  Really cool.  🙂
