Switching to a third-person narrator has opened the floodgates on Circus, my short novel in progress. I’m able to jump between multiple storylines at will, which is keeping the narrative lively, at least for me.
Circus is a crazy tale — part romance, part Grand Guignol thriller . . . like an extravagant silent movie scenario. The circus itself is so surreal and over-the-top that it seems to demand lurid melodrama when telling a story about its backstage dramas and intrigues.
In any case, it suits my mood and is giving me a thrill a minute.
