Have you ever been writing and realized that you didn’t like a character?
I started a character that wasn’t at all like me. I thought it would be good to stretch myself and write a girl who is very shy and introverted and I don’t like her. The story is supposed to be her story, but I don't care enough about her to finish what I started. Right now I want to write it all from the boy because he’s an awesome character. I’m just curious if any else has written something and then realized that they just don’t like their person?
I’ve actually scrapped this project and used some of her stuff for another character instead.
But the boy? He’s SO going to be my next story.
It will never cease to amaze me at how alive my characters are.
Have you had similar experiences? Or used parts of one project for another?
