 Hello all,

Writing from PA with my cat by my side.

I finished my first book but realized I head hopped all over the place. But is head hopping really bad? Just finished reading a NY times book and she head hopped galore!

Sent out 70 queries on first book but no luck. Now I'm working on my second book. Just hit 20,000 words, shooting for 80,000. I am such a procrastinator!!! I have plenty of time to write so just need a kick start.

Thanks for any support! Doris

Welcome, Doris. And your cat.

(fyi: limit your hopping to one head per scene, max.)

 Hi Welcome Hi

If you're switching characters, keep the heads separate. If it's multiple personality disorder, don't give the readers headaches.

Just my opinion.

Good Luck.

Thanks everyone,

I love your cat, Munley. I drove through Canada to get to Alaska, Canada is very diverse in people and landscape.

Just found a dead mourning dove at the bird feeder and my outside cat actually had feathers stuck in his whiskers.
I guess you have to take the bad (I love birds) with the good (I love cats) , very upsetting.

Thanks jldelozier, GLZyx, jcwrites

Welcome from  someone slightly less newer than you.  I love your cat too. I have two black rescue cats that are sisters. In my opinion I think head hopping works well so long as it doesn't become confusing.

Hello Pearl,

I have a large black tom cat that mostly lives outside. He is 20 pounds of sleek muscle. He had a microchip and it said he lived in Florida! I found his owner from the chip and he had moved to PA. I wrote to him twice on facebook but he never responded. Well, now he is my cat! Named him Egypt because he is regal.

I think head hopping could be a topic in the forum, most discussions I've read online say it is really bad.

Thanks for the greeting, same to you! 

Doris
