Sometimes you cringe and sometimes you are pleasantly surprised by what you find. I was looking for something different to work on for my six pages tonight and had a look at an unfinished story. I don’t know about the overall story, but I’m rather pleased with how much fun one of the characters is.
Characters are a tough thing to write well and I don’t know how to advise people on writing them because, honestly, I come up with an initial concept and the character just sort of peels itself off the screen and runs off with the story with no additional work from me. Definitely a discovery style writer.
