comment Possible interactions of punctuation marks with the word “however” in a novel
@guypursey I agree that people normally don't speak like this, I'm still unsure whether this narrator is the main character since I`m still describing setting at this point. In the next chapter the main character will be introduced. So I guess I should decide on this first.

comment Switching from past to present tense?
I have to agree that both ideas are appealing and could fit the book. However I am still leaning toward the flashback beginning for a few reasons, first I avoid having to use a line like 20 years earlier. second, I can introduce the character while he`s still young and surprise the reader when he`s suddenly 10 years older. but then there is still the issue of rising action during the more boring flashbacks necessary for the reader to understand the character.

I really want the climax to be a surprise so the reader is kept in suspense, instead of them already knowing the ending.
