On the other hand, showing the female protagonist what people think of the male protagonist can be a good thing. Showing that Jacob is loved and that he has friends and favorite places might build a stronger bond to him in the reader's mind.
So, wondering. I think I'll just put in all the detail and then I can cut later. Oy. This first draft might be a big 'un for a YA novel. :) The important thing is to keep going. I finished the first scene of chapter 2 but then sort of hit a snag. By the time I'd figured out what I wanted to show next, I was too tired to write it. Ah well, hopefully Friday night will be productive. I want to do 35 pages a week; about half what I think COULD do in crunch mode.
Ah well, here's hoping chapter 2 gets done tonight and then I can get things rolling in Chapter 3.
