I’m a newbie with the Sleuth Lens.
While I, as author, know the characters of my first Cozy Mystery very, very well, seeing them through my linguist sleuth’s eyes is an entirely separate matter.
Her perceptions of people are wildly different than my own.
Subjective and screwy, battered and bitter her lens is frankly an unwieldy one to hold.
Yep, I’m a newbie with the Sleuth Lens… and, alas, it shows.
