Well, kids, you’re looking at the new co-host of a public writing group out of Southbridge, MA! (I knew living behind a library would be handy.) I’m currently working out the specifics with the library director, we’re meeting with her today at 4pm!
At the risk of sounding dorky: YAY!
Random announcement complete. You may all go back to your regularly scheduled activities. =]
“Work in progress.” Story of my life. This story and these characters are really working for me– as far as their personalities and roles go. What I can’t seem to get down is the dynamic in my romance thread. The general air around Z and Gage is supposed to be tense but loving, but let me tell you… that is NOT working easily. I can’t seem to get across what I want to show in their pairing.
They bicker like an old married couple, and throw verbal jabs, and I can tell by the way their dialog comes out that they’re both probably mentally throttling one another.
BUT THEY ARE IN LOVE, DAMN IT!
So, my question to you all: “How do you overcome rebellious character types? And how do you mold their interaction to your will?”
