View from the choir

I am a Catholic layperson and Secular Franciscan with a sense of humor. After years in the back pew watching, I have moved into the choir. It's nice to see faces instead of the backs of heads. But I still maintain God has a sense of humor - and that we are created in God's image.

I read through the first seven sections yesterday.

Some good stuff in it. Two passages that bug me, though.

One gives some background on the main character, but I think it spends too much time doing so. I need to cut out that section, move it, reduce it, something.

The other section is kind of graphic. Appropriate for a secular horror novel - maybe even tame - but if I aim to create a Christian/Catholic horror novel, I don't know if this fits. At the same time, it gives some explanation for one of the "monsters," humanizing him.

Hmm. More reading today.
