It is the end of day four and I’m still writing. Or not writing, as the case may be. I am living in this strange, but wonderful place of getting to know my characters and in turn building the world in which they live.
A new character emerged today. I’ve been trying to name this character for days. While doing a writing exercise from the antagonists point of view his name appeared. It was through his relationship with others that his character was formed.
As a pantster (one who does not plot) this phase of letting ideas flow excites me. It’s what I love about writing. I am excited to be learning new ways to explore the world my characters live in before I start writing my draft. I can already see a hint of what is to come.
