One of the head-scratchings I've been puzzling over with regards to FallingBook is whose story it actually is.

Well, I say I've been puzzling over it, and it's really not such a big puzzle: it's M's story. The thing that's puzzling me - and has puzzled me all along about how to go about telling her story - is how best to do it. See, currently, the story is told by M as a young woman (20 years before), M in the present, and her daughter, F, also in the present. It makes sense to me that all three voices should be there in the telling, but at the moment, in terms of word count, present F and present M are about equal, with 20-years-ago M weighing in with by far the greatest word countage.

This is definitely skewed. I need to weight it far more in favour of M in the present. But how? How to do that, without losing the important aspects of the story that F and 20-years-ago M bring to it?

Hmmm ... more head-scratching required, I think. Much more.
