I’m feeling somewhat out of sorts today, as if my body is struggling with an infection. I’ve been feeling like that a lot lately. Probably a combination of the onset of autumn and the cold/flu season and the fact that school hasn’t been running long enough for me to have developed a protection against all the bugs flying around yet.
So instead of reading a new post by me (though you’re welcome to read my old posts), why don’t you hop over to Shanna Swendson’s journal and read her post on how to create a character – or not.
I must confess that I’m guilty of basing a character on another fictional character. However, in my defence it was clear that the creator(s) didn’t know what to do with the character and didn’t particularly care for that character either, since they never exploited the possibilities. And since they didn’t want him, I figured it it’s only fair if I adopt him. Never mind that I thoroughly filed off the serial numbers.
