Day 63 - Death by chocolate

Posted by Alyssa Drake on 12 October, 2021 at 18:40

The tale of Grammy Sue, also known as Devoured, was born from a combination Hansel and Gretel, and a dark comedy I watched many years ago, where the characters were killed and dumped into a vat of chocolate.

Points to anyone who can name this "sweet" film.

Putting aside the skin crawling that occurs when I read first person - okay, let's address this for a moment. I want to lose myself in the story, and I find it jarring to read "I" all the time because it feels more like a journal. This is just a personal thing, everyone is free to enjoy what they wish (I obviously wrote in both POV's).


Now, when I started revisions on this story, I discovered the timeline needed to be changed to fit the interaction between Dr. Jack and Myra. These changes took most of my time and I ended up only completing two chapters before turning in the for night. Definitely, not on pace to where I want to be.
