Can I cradle you in the nook of my arms? If you were here, would you let me? Hold you I mean? I don’t just want a hug.

Do you like to write short stories?

You do … but can you follow a prompt and write a story in 72 hours?

No, it’s not a trick question.

The Power of the Music of the Night by Andrew Lloyd Webber

Excellent backstory post about ‘The Phantom!”

 

Nighttime sharpens, heightens each sensation
Darkness stirs and wakes imagination
Silently the senses abandon their defenses

[Verse 2]
Slowly, gently, night unfurls its splendor
Grasp it, sense it, tremulous and tender
Turn your face away from the garish light of day
Turn your thoughts away from cold, unfeeling light
And listen to the music of the night

3 Ways to Write a Character You Hate

hand-1006423_640

 

by Kathryn

Now, when I say ‘characters you hate’, I don’t mean villains.

In fact, some of my favorite characters in pieces I’ve written and read have been villains.

What I mean when I say ‘characters you hate’, is the characters who are reprehensible pieces of crap who also (unfortunately) serve a significant purpose to the storyline.

It’s not easy to write them. That’s established.

Writing them is tedious and boring, especially when you have characters you love to write and love to make scenes for, but if you don’t also spare time for the bad ones, then your story has a significant hole that needs to be filled.

It’s hard to craft a well-rounded story when you’ve got say, 10 characters that you love to write, because you put the most effort into making those characters perfect.
