INSECURE WRITER’S SUPPORT GROUP
Writer’s supporting, encouraging and learning from each other. Post on your own blog about your struggles, your triumphs, and your successes. Talk about your works in progress the good, the bad and the ugly or some other writing relating topic on your mind. Read others, interact, comment, and grow within this wonderful author community. Every month there is an optional question for those who may need help figuring out what to post about.
OPTIONAL IWSG Day Question: Whose perspective do you like to write from best, the hero (
I tend to like to write from the perspective of the protagonist. However, I have a bad habit of turning the villain into an anti-hero type personality so have to watch for that.
Of course, all good heroes have those, shades of gray and flaws. I think maybe when I create a villain I feel the need to create a reason for him being the way he is and then the character refuses to cooperate and just be an outright bad guy. Drives me nuts.
I feel like I am always behind. I am having trouble finishing my stories. I am freezing up. I get to a certain point and then I don’t know what comes next, and lately have found it hard to move past that.
