Someone once said the trick to writing good drama is to never make friends with your characters. This is something I really don’t think I have a problem with. Even though I like my characters, (I really do), I don’t think they like me very much. I just feel there’s a list somewhere, floating through the ether, and on this list is everyone fictional characters hate. With every story I write I can feel myself moving up the list.
I’m sure I’ve got a ways to go before the fictional characters of the universe get together and put a hit out on my like they did to the brothers Grimm, but it could totally happen one day.
