Here I am today!

Day 6 of my 28 day writing challenge and I did my daily writing stint in the staff room at one of the schools I coach at. There is a short period when my classes are done and the others haven’t finished yet and I usually have the staff room to myself. I usually spend this time evaluating and planning, but today I used the time free-writing one of the characters from my historical novel who needs some depth.

Most of my writing this week has been about Sören. He is a tricky character because I know I have been too kind to some of his more unpleasant character traits. He is really a nice guy, I promise, but I also know that to get the depth of the story I want, I need to make him more responsible for his deeds. Own up to his true character.

This challenge has been good for this exercise. Every day I focus on one bit of his characteristics, breaking it down like this has really helped to get under his skin. To me this challenge has not been so much about writing in different places to get a new perspective, as to find the time and energy to write every day, no matter how short period.

22 more days to go. Then 30 days of NaNoWriMo

  1. Good luck with the challenge. I’m thinking about participating in Nano this year.

  2. Ooh, well done! I will also be doing NaNoWriMo – I find it a great way to pick up my writing projects when I am distracted with my freelance blog work. See you later 🙂
