if you start your story with every character named elizabeth, you have to give your audience some clues. the main character is named elizabeth, and her best friend, eliza, and her mother, eliza, and a little baby, eliza. so, elizabeth's best friend, eliza, walks home, a few lines later, eliza is talking, and i'm flipping back going, wait a minute--i thought eliza went home. well, turns out, the mother is named eliza too. thanks for mentioning this. great editing. this is why fiction is dead. and it doesn't matter if this is based on a true story. you're not telling a true story, you are telling DRAMA. the true story happened a hundred and fity years ago. so set your characters apart. i read four pages, got so tired of flipping around, trying to figure out who is eliza, and elizabeth, flicked the book at the wall and turned on the tube.
