My writing experiment–part 2

My goal is to put up a new segment of Ophelia’s Story every Friday until it’s finished. Every once in a while, I like to try something new with my writing. This time, I wanted my protagonist to make a bad decision that gets in her trouble in every segment until the last. I usually write about protagonists who TRY to do the right thing, who struggle against the odds, but it never works out until the end. This time, I wanted to write about someone who DOESN’T try, who knows she might not be making good decisions, and doesn’t care. It’s a five part story, and I just put up Part 2. I’m writing it in first person/present tense to make it more immediate. I rarely do that, so that’s been fun, too. Ophelia has a while yet to push her luck:)

The story’s on my webpage, and if you want to give it a try, it’s listed in the left-hand column under Ophelia’s Story Part 2. http://www.judithpostswritingmusings.com/
