Yes, this blog was supposed to be about characterization, but I have exciting news!

Okay, maybe not so exciting. But it is news.

Chapters Sixteen and Seventeen are both done. Hooray! Two more chapters to go and then Part One is finished! Part Two has about fifteen chapters and Part Three has about five to ten depending on the length. I know, I know. That’s quite a bit. But still . . .

Okay, random interruption over!

Still waters always run deep!

New Series of Posts!

Hi everyone!
I am going to begin posting a new series of passages which I feel may be beneficial to novice writers. What about, you ask?
*drum roll*


What, no fireworks? Jeez! I need to fire that guy! *sigh* J Oh well.

My next three (or more) posts will all be about characters. Creating them, knowing them, telling their story . . .
Easy huh?
Well, I don’t like pie so . . . guess not.
The bad taste? Yeah, that’s from all the Mary-Sues dominating the bookshelves! As a writer, I have gone through the Mary-Sue phase.
The first sign: Denial.
“No! I love my character! She’s no Mary-Sue! By the way, what is that exactly?”

We’ll talk more about that in the near future. Promise. J
Still waters always run deep!

Ah, the dreaded block. In one word: Ick!

I have its right now and it’s worse than literally sprinting headfirst into a metal wall. *sigh*
I’ll write today and see how it goes. I’m thinking about beginning a scene again. Shouldn’t be too difficult since it’s only a few paragraphs. I’ll let you know how it’s going later.

See ya!
Still waters always run deep!
