OK, this is frustrating. The Indian Mystery story is shaping up to be a pretty interesting plot, but the voice isn't working. I'm a Modern Gal and tend to write in a somewhat "hard-boiled" style -- I figured I would have to moderate that somewhat to write something set in ca. 1820, but it's coming out in this annoying bodice-ripper voice that I hate. I'm gonna try using my normal voice with it and see what happens. Wish me luck. It could get ugly.
