Today I got some helpful advice about my writing: ADD EMOTION. Yes, it was all caps. This has been difficult for me since I am not overly emotional. Because I don’t see the value as clearly as most others would, it’s tricky to convey my character’s emotions. Now that I know what at least one of the problems is, hopefully I can keep at it and progress.
In other news, I finished the rough draft of the second character’s outline. Francis Holt the 2nd is an adolescent in the capital city of Etaren. This time around, when I was making the outline, I tried to embed some emotions there as well. One of the challenges now is to keep these characters original, and not let them act like other literary figures they resemble.
