Having to spend time in my Antagonist’s head is giving me a headache. Seriously. Having to think the way he does, having to look at the world through his eyes, makes me shudder. We’re so different, he and I. I hope. He’s planning to do some things of which I do not approve. I am so not living vicariously through him. Nope. Not. The way he thinks makes my brain hurt and I find it challenging to write for him at all. I’ve written villains before and had great fun. But this one, oy! Gonna take some work to make him more of a person. I don’t want him to be a cardboard character, he has to be real flesh and blood. Well, not real flesh and blood because he is a fictional character. But he has to seem like a real person when you read the story. And for that to happen I’ve got to make him real to me. Hmm…
In related news, I tweeted this link earlier but just in case you missed it, here it is: the Voluntary Human Extinction Movement. “Returning Earth to its natural splendor and ending needless suffering of humanity…” By voluntarily allowing the human race to become extinct. Yes, that’s right, by going the way of the dinosaurs. It’s not a joke. I wish it were. These people are serious. How did I find out about them? I found out about VHEMT (and other movements, like Deep Ecology) by reading the War on Humans, by Wesley J. Smith (also at Discovery Institute, article database, National Review, First Things, LifeSiteNews, The Weekly Standard, and @forcedexit on Twitter), as part of my ongoing research. Check out the documentary. Get the eBook for $1.99: Kindle version, iBook version, Nook version. And, no, I don’t make one cent off anything I recommend on the blog.
Thank you for visiting and reading. God bless you and peace be with you!
