I’ve decided to spend some time re-writing about the nature of character in novels. I have yet AGAIN re-arranged things and, as such, I need to contemplate about the nature of character and how I can take some of my “mood” characters to the next level.
My heroine is a part-time (for fun) sex-worker.
I have a limited amount of time, so I need to hurry. Having a sense of urgency is the key thing that is going to make or break my efforts to get the third draft of this novel done by around April 1st.
Things are improving with the third draft by leaps and bounds, but yet I still have a long ways to go. I really need to flesh out some characters that to date simply haven’t had a lot going on. I hope to at last have the first three chapters of the novel done pretty soon — ASAP.
But only time will tell. I can’t keep spinning my wheels. I need to accept that this third draft isn’t going to be perfect, no matter how much I work on it. The key thing is to just get it finished on a structural basis.
