The muse is at it again
For those of you who've suffered through my previous blogs (hey, it's not like it's Shannon's place or something with all these insightful tidbits...) (that blog is like my homepage) anyway....
Remember the post about the muse demanding I get up and write down ideas? Yeah, you guessed it, she's at it again. Actually, it's kinda cool cuz I finally *can* explore this new idea. Vamps are...well, where they are right now. If I had Microsoft Outlook and used the tasks, I'd snooze them and put there status "waiting on something else" [my coworker uses these tasks and man, are they great...]
Over the last couple of weeks I've tossed the muse a doggie bone or two by pulling out the old pencil/notepad and jotting down some character quirks and interesting tidbits that will turn them from ideas into living, breathing characters. One thing I found odd about this story, at least so far. No matter what I do, think, try, brainstorm or babble, I still can't figure what character flaws/emotional baggage/motivation [i.e. character arc] my hero has/wants/needs.
Usually the guys are easy. (yeah, aren't they?)
This book seems to be really heroine driven. I'm wondering if it's begging to be witch-lit erotica.
With that, my eyes crossed and rolled back in my head and the groan prolly generated a 6.0 on the Richter scale. I didn't just say that, did I?
That puts a whole new meaning to this book. And ya know. Damn, this could be ALOT of freaking (and the other "F" word) fun!
