My next chapter

Chapter 7 of Majella Bracebridge is up on the site:

https://leighmathers.wordpress.com/category/novels/majella-bracebridge/chapter-7-majella-bracebridge/

I am taking a break from my main character Majella and attempting to tell the next couple of chapters in other characters’ voices. I’m being a bit experimental.

I really want to convey here an undercurrent; a sense that underneath all the Arctic Roll and other domestic small talk, Mother is worried about Majella and her apparent apathy and lack of work following her initial success. I am also trying to get a sense that Majella’s classmates from drama school are starting to “overtake” her, gain more high profile jobs in showbiz, while she is resting on her laurels somewhat.

I am going to make Majella subsequently suffer from depression (cos I’m nice like that) and am aiming here to build up a sense of foreboding heading towards that. Hopefully I achieve that…

    Aww! Poor Majella! Maybe if it gets made on TV, she could be played (the present day Majella that is) by Gill Jordan (Doreen the ‘lazy cow’ from You Tube).
