NaNoWriMo Day 3: My Character is Really Talking to Me

Okay so this morning Mackenzie is taking this opportunity to take the bull by the horns and seize the moment to really prove herself to her editor.  She’s starting to act more like a police detective than just an Investigative reporter.  She’s conducting interviews and canvassing neighborhoods and even flirting with the lead homicide detective on the case to gain as much information out of him as she can get.  She’s even convinced him to let her look at the autopsy report and crime scene photos, of which she made copies of for her own use.  

But Mackenzie is having a hard time keeping her personal issues surrounding this case from affecting her.  She got the story because she dated the Ex-congressman and her editor thought it might be easier for her to get the personal details no other reporter could probably get.  But now her career rests on a man who she had never wanted to see again.  Now she has to relive those moments with him that she was trying to forget for all these years.  Working on this story could have damaging psychological effects that she is not prepared to deal with yet.  

Okay Mackenzie is having another one of her episodes again so I have to go deal with her for a little while.  I might have more to tell you guys tomorrow.  Happy writing everyone!
