So, you know how sometimes you have trouble coming up with characters?
I spent this past Sunday writing and such. My NEW MOON Blu-Ray was playing in the background most of the day.
Shut up. Don't JUDGE me.
You might remember my short story from last week. Well ... it's not a short anymore. It's now a Work In Progress, with the blessing of Awesome Agent Holly. Now that it's ... grown ... I decided to do a little plotting.
I resolved quite a bit on paper and in my mind, but one of the plot points that was floating around when I went to sleep was the opposition/conflict for Dovey. It wasn't STRONG or BAD enough. As it sometimes does, I hoped something would come to me in the middle of the night. I even put a notebook, pencil and flashlight by the bed.
Turns out I didn't need the notebook. I remembered. Quite vividly.
THIS GUY, Charlie Bewley (Demetri in NEW MOON), waltzed into my dream and bossed me. BOSSED ME. Basically said, "Look no further. I am your romantic villain. And I bring conflict and PAIN." He then proceeded to place a crown on his head - off-center - and plopped down on a throne.
Then I had a very clear vision of a scene where he ... I'm not going to tell you, but he is EVIL. I think you'll like him, in that bad boy kind of way.
Now ... he just needs a name.
