Just a few things to start the week…
Last week I entered our one sentence pitch in a contest over at Literary Agent, Rachelle Gardner’s blog. We didn’t win or even get an honorable mention, but there is still a chance we could get ours critiqued. So this morning we were joking on IM that any publicity is good publicity. Right? If we get ripped apart, we’ll let you know.
R. J. and I were also talking about our characters. It’s kinda fun, like when you first meet someone new, only better. I’m pretty set on Regina Todd’s character as a vampire because I have to provide a clear picture of her personality within the first 5-10 pages to introduce the story. You’ll have to wait until June 30th to see. But William Knox still suffers from Multiple Character Disorder. Is that a literary or writing term? For example, R.J. still has these questions on his mind and many more.
I’m debating a lot about his character. Is he young/old, idealistic or jaded, clear-minded or “not-sober”, self-assured or in a crisis of identity? Ugh. I can find good reasons for all of them, but which way do I go?
He may be blogging more about his struggle, so stay tuned.
Our weekly forum question over at Vamplit Writers asks who our vampire alter ego might be. I’ll just mention that I picked Violet from Ultraviolet and R. J. is Otto Criek from the Discworld series by Terry Pratchett. We are quite the odd pair.
HAVE A GREAT WEEK, EVERYONE!!
