Voice makes everything, doesn't it? It adds an unique perspective to the novel, it entertains the reader, and it can push the novel forward.

Which is why I haven't written anything in a while.

To make a long story short, I started writing from a new POV. And this person is very different than everyone else I've written before. She's more bitter, for reasons that will be brought up later in the story. But for now, she has to have that bitter, I-don't-care attiude about everything.

This is where I'm having problems. I can't figure out what this person would be thinking as they experienced these things. I can't figure out how she would be feeling in these situations, underneath all of her bitterness and... I'm not sure. And that's my problem. The worst part is that I know I can't get help from anyone on this. Nobody can tell me, "Oh, this is how she's feeling." I have to figure this out on my own.


Just wanted to let you know that that's where I've been. Trying to figure out who this girl is and editing my novel. And being sick. Oh, and I unintentionally kind of gave blogspot up for Lent. Yup.

What have you been up to?


  1. I have the same problem with some of my characters...I want them to be mean and bitter, and by the end of the chapter they are soft and nice. And of course no one can help, we created the characters so we MUST know what they are feeling AND how to put it into words. Oh sigh.

  2. That's exactly how I feel! I wrote about a paragraph today from her point of view and I'm proud of myself for that :D

  3. Oh yay! I'm so happy for you!! I am writing a book where the MC ingores the other MC for quite a bit...wish me luck on that one! :) Cant wait to read more of your blog!!
