So I think it’s well known that I hate killing off characters, but if I think it is needed in the plot, then I do so. For the final draft, I will get around to killing off a certain main character that I refused to kill off in the previous drafts. It just seemed ridiculous to me that they stayed alive, really. I only kept them alive because of how scared I was to kill them. It changes the plot of the second book slightly, but it’s important that it happens. Otherwise, it’s not realistic and the whole point of the story is not as compelling.
I REALLY hate myself for doing this. The fans will probably hate me just as much, but I can live with that.
To end this off nicely, for the final draft, I will finally do what I proudly proclaimed I would do initially. Now, half of the book is from the protagonist’s perspective and the other half is from the antagonist’s perspective.
Basically, what I’m telling you is that there is now no antagonist or protagonist. There are just warring sides. And really, that’s what I should have done all along.
I am one follower away from having 100 FOLLOWERS! For a guy who basically only posts once every other day, this is pretty darn impressive. I eagerly await the next one, so I can throw a mini-party in my dorm room.
For those who do not know what this blog is about, I’m currently writing a fantasy novel while in college. No, not a short story, not novella… novel. So my life is basically a mixture of me writing an epic fantasy whilst balancing friendships and learning things about how to live.
in this blog, I write news about the book, poetry, and writing wisdom I have earned through lots of trial and error. (Yes, I use the Oxford comma. The Oxford comma trumps all.) I’ll be posting more college stories soon as well. That was the original intent of the blog, really. Writing tips just kind of took over after that. But that will be fixed.
