Wherein Jack looks suspicious.
I need to sit down and explain what is going on with my writing lately, because it has been taking all kinds of weird turns and I am not able to keep up - well, not most of the time. I attempt it, and all of my running and stumbling gives my characters something to laugh at.
I have a week left till I am back home though, so I think I will just wait till then - when I am out of stick, wet air and can breathing and function properly again. I AM NOT USED TO THIS CONSTANT HUMIDITY! How do people survive down here? If any of you are Southerns you have my admiration.
I have just reached the half way mark in reading through Brothers-in-Arms and making some plot adjustments so I can send it out to some editors. Right now I will probably just send it to one editor and then some others when she is done with it.
If that made no sense then don't try and figure it out. I'm still not in the making sense state of mind right now.
Brothers-in-Arms is taking much more of my time then I ever planned to give it, at least right now. I feel like those sayings...."I didn't sign up for this!"
Enough of that though. Back to the challenge. There are six days left, counting today, then I will try and explain what has been going on with my writing. I should be done reading by then and maybe can make some kind of sense in a post.
Today is the character who has the best arc.
Nick from Grimm.
I guess he doesn't have a huge one, compared to other characters, but it is there. At the beginning of the show he is kind of quieter, sticks to the rules, and tries to keep his Grimm works separate from his police work. In later episodes, he is a little harder, sterner, and struggling to keep his two lives apart.
I am going to do someone who has a backwards character arc, because I can.
He starts out as cheerful, wanting to help his friend, and just make it through the war unchanged and alive. Then, some brain washing and torture later, he is almost a cold-blooded assassin who has no control over his own actions. (You know, for the most part.)
This one is hard - as usual - because I have so many options.
But, I have to go with Roden from The False Prince.
In book one Roden is selfish and angry, by the end of the series....(I can't say. Spoilers. JUST READ THE BOOKS! That is all.)
Oh....I could do Mr. Jelliby too from The Peculiar and The Whatnot. He has a big arc. So does Bartholomew - I loved his. His was cool and sad all at once.
Tintin has a pretty big one too.
Okay, I'm going before I make my list too long.
Besides, I have to figure out how a scene I don't remember writing ended up in my book.
