Where I talk about bad guys

Lately with my novel Healers I've been hitting a pretty big block: my antagonist doesn't make sense. I was so busy fleshing out my two main characters that I forgot to empathise with my villain. Since I'm rewriting the scenes that lead to the climax, I find that his motivations are not clear at [...]

It's still linked with my novel, as scenes of it will happen in a similar location. Research was therefore a good [...]

Character sheets!

By | 2018-05-22T20:16:47+00:00 October 14th, 2017|Journal|0 Comments

So last time, I told you that my next step in revisions would be to restructure the novel using index cards. Turns out I needed an extra step before I could do that: modify/redo my characters sheets. What is a character sheet? It depends greatly on what you write, what type of writer you are [...]
