FAIRYTALES WITH BITE
The Point of It All discusses one aspect where fiction is very clearly shown to be fiction. This is the fact that the main character (and usually more of your “cast”) know the point of it all in terms of their story. They know where they are heading. Also if they were to forget, there is someone else who will always remind them. Frodo Baggins and Sam are the best examples of this that I can think of. Think about how your main characters regroup and refocus (and who helps them to do that) when they lost sight of their goal in the story.
THIS WORLD AND OTHERS
Nothing but the Best discusses the fact that we have to present the very best material if we have any hope at all of being published. So do our characters come across the way we mean them to do? The very best characters, whether they are evil or good, will ring true in all they say and do (even if they are being false!).

I look at character studies tonight and why flash fiction is a great vehicle for them.

Am making progress with advertising my latest event – the book signing at Chandler’s Ford Railway Station on 8th July! Will share more news as and when I can but am pleased with how things are going so far. Also looking forward to the Winchester Writers’ Festival which is next month. Have not entered any of the writing competitons this year as far too busy on the book (and family circumstances have taken up the rest of my time) but am looking forward to catching up with old friends, hopefully making new ones, as well as enjoying the courses.
