I’m not talking about technology today simply because I’m too fed up to bother. Also, I’ve not had a huge amount of time for using it this weekend, meaning that a post is a little difficult.
So, my vocal characters. I mentioned them in Friday’s post and I can tell you, they’re getting a whole lot worse. They waited until I worked out who was behind this plot (yay! one problem solved!) and then hit me with the bigger questions, such as…
How the heck are we now going to solve this problem?
I’ve realised that all I know is that there are these bad guys behind this and somehow my characters have to sort it out. And that’s it. How do they sort it out? Do they kill them or what? I don’t know!
To make it worse, Bronwyn – the most stubborn antagonist you could possibly have – is getting on my nerves. Wyn, I don’t know how to write about your crush on Alys because I’ve never been through that. I write from experience and when I haven’t got the experience, what am I meant to do? None of my friends happen to be able to advise me on that, thanks!
(By the way, if anyone out there has any suggestions on how someone who’s homosexual might describe another girl when they’ve got a crush on them, I would be hugely grateful for the help … go to the ‘contact me’ page if you don’t want to post it publicly!)
Oh, and I’m not mad at her because I’ve got anything against lesbians, just so you know. I’m mad at her because (a) I have no idea how to write it and (b) Alys is the only vaguely innocent character I’ve got left (even after she watched her sister be murdered), so I don’t want her to get any more screwed up.
I’m going to go and abuse these morons a bit more, but if you’ve got any advice, stories of this happening to you etc, please …. please ….. please, post a comment. I need you.
Also, it’s about 32 degrees over here which might not seem a lot to you guys from warm places, but it’s doing my head in. I’m sticking to the table. This is not English weather! Give us some rain or something!
Actually, don’t. A breezy twenty degrees is fine for me.
This is Celsius for Americans or other aliens, btw.
