Why do we do this?
I guess it's fun to make someone snarky, who'd say things you wouldn't, or maybe you taught eighth grade and are being realistic...
But for whatever reason you have, is your MC boarding on too obnoxious? Right now mine is.
So anyone got any ideas for making an annoying character more endearing??
I know this has been successfully done... an example: See Kyle, in Beastly by Alex Flinn
The MC is a total jerk, he kind of does a nice thing and you think maybe he's not all bad, but then he's still a scuz bucket... but throughout the book he'll take two steps forward one step back, he's a great example of transforming your character.
Now I just have to close the gap and figure out how to do this with my story.
Now for the letter Z:
My baby is due on the 10th... I've been totally Zombie Mom lately. Really. Like locking my keys in my car multiple times, leaving the oven on indefinitely, leaving hamburger meat out on the counter (for the record it was out to thaw, still wrapped and on a plate, but I kinda forgot I was going to make sloppy joes that night)--good thing my husband has been checking out the kitchen before he goes to bed...
So I'm excited to get back to my completely irregular blogging schedule, because maybe with one less thing to think about I'll remember the important things... like turning off the oven.
Posting might be a little hit and miss for a while, so see ya when I see ya.
