Much Ado About Characters
2. If you were him/her what would you have done differently in their situation? Shayla is a minor character in the book, but her story is underway. I'm not sure yet how she will react to her situation, except that she will go hard after what she wants. Peter takes too long to fight for himself. I would like to think that I would stand up for myself sooner than he does.
3. Do you believe in the traditional HEA or do you think sometimes characters don’t need (or maybe deserve) them? EVERYONE deserves a happily ever after ... well except total creeps and villains. I want my characters to find happy for now, or at least content. But my preference is definitely for HAPPILY EVER AFTER. Life is too short, and too uncertain to settle for less.
That is my brief take on this weeks questions.
