Interesting narrative strategy: I decided that although Whichway is third person, it's not going to be the voice of me narrating it. I think I'm going to write it as if one of the minor characters were telling what was happening, without acknowledging that he's in the story. Makes it a lot easier to flavour the prose for me, if I can imagine a specific character telling it. As a further prompt, I considered which public persona (an actor in this case) would best fit the character, and dug up some appropriate images of him with google.
On the flip side, I find it helpful to imagine who the story would be told to. Bad Luck Boy, for example, was written how I would have told it to one of the boys I work with.
I think with Whichway I'm going to have to be considering both. So I guess the character will be telling it to someone (perhaps the same kid) in my head, and I'll be the transcriber. Ah, fun with balancing acts.
