Daily Writing Check-in: April 19, 2016

Words/Time:  566 words of free writing. Before I stopped writing for a while, I was planning to focus on one character during free writing time for a while, to try to draw them out a bit. Some of the characters in “Pursuit of Power” aren’t as developed as I prefer. Back in February, I started with Leahna, the secondary main character in the novel. I’m going to stick with her for now, and today’s writing started with me asking her the question, “What do you really want me to know about you?” This was because, as I mentioned once before, though she has a very big role in the novel, she’s been mostly one-dimensional so far. I think she comes across as being nearly flawless, so I let her ramble on a bit about that today.

    • I have a decent list of characters I want to spend more time with. I didn’t feel the need to do that as much with “Pithea,” but I wonder if that’s because a lot more forethought and planning went into that first book before it was even drafted.

      Leahna is using this time to show me that she’s a real person, not just some flawless, best-friend figure who is only here to support the main characters.

      • Leahna sounds amazing 🙂 Glad her voice is getting heard.
        I didn’t flesh out my characters the first time with Pirate Eyes and so I spent a bit of time before this last revision to get to know more of them for the same reason 🙂
