Writing Tricks

Today, I'm tricking myself. I'm having some problems getting inside my characters so I'm doing what Karen, my BCP (Beloved Critique Partner) always suggests--writing in first person.

I kind of like it. So far, so fun! But when will I reach the point where I can get "a-hold" of these folks without a trick? Isn't it funny that people and events that live only in my own head can be elusive? Not funny ha-ha, for sure. Just funny-extremely odd.

I need to make some progress so I can get caught up reading. I'm looking most slackerish in the 10,000 book challenge. Three books started--none finished.
