CHARACTERS WHO DEFINITELY NEED A FRESH START

FAIRYTALES WITH BITE

Well, I start the New Year as I mean to go on with a blog post with a title that says it all!  Characters who definitely need a fresh start looks at five characters (fairytale and otherwise) who need a new beginning and why.  In one case, Dracula, I give a practical pointer to Terry Pratchett’s Black Ribboner programme as the way forward.  Course the big problem is the characters have got to want to change…  hmm, that probably rules Dracula out then.  Still, I hope this lighthearted post raises a smile or two…

THIS WORLD AND OTHERS

The theme for the New Year period kind of sets itself.  New Beginnings is the title of tonight’s post and I look at why characters would feel the need to have them.  A classic reason is the character’s need for redemption and the reasons why have been the basis for many a wonderful story.

I discuss my love of classical music tonight and how it affects my writing.  I never used to be able to write with music on at all (I found it affected my mood and therefore what I wrote) but have found classical to be relaxing so I end up writing more.  (I think that’s a good thing anyway!).
