What I'm Doing This Weekend

I need to write 40 pages this weekend, and need to spend this morning going back over my characters and making them more sympathetic. The problem with doing a brutal blood and sand novel is that you start to forget everybody's humanity.

That's a problem. It also makes the entire story more interesting when everybody's got their own shit going on. I need to deepen said shit.

2 comments so far. What are your thoughts?

Whip the Dickens into them!? Or is it to Russianize them better? It's a fine line indeed in this day & age. Cheers & Good Luck, 'VJ'

Sounds very good; it's all that background stuff that makes characters so cool (when it's all revealed).
