This new book represents over six years’ worth of my life experiences, insights, and ideas on creating a better way of living for all of us:
how can i create, more or less, an “evil” character but still have them retain their humanity. i don’t want her to seem evil, but choices she makes and things she does, some may consider “evil.” im not sure how to give her virtues without invalidating her vices.
Sounds like you’re writing an antivillain.
I’ve been using scrivener for writing, the problem is that the timeline I have prepared for my story is so long, it’s confusing to scroll up and down inside the folder and I get lost inside the timeline. Question is if you know about any good timeline programs since I find it hard to keep track of events and such.
I have a boy characters who are pretty much completely different in their values and reactions. When they first meet there’s a lot of tension between them and they kind of seem like they hate each other. Its set in a post apocalyptic world so I think its reasonable that they don’t trust each other for a while. The problem is that I’m afraid its too unbelievable that they would trust one another by the end. Should I ease up on the tension between them at the beginning?
No. Whatever happens between their first meeting and their last scene will dictate whether they trust each other - if they save each others’ lives or put their safety/gain on the line for the other/their loved ones, then they will probably trust each other by the end.
