The project I want to do next came as a result of one of the monthly comps – the one Daeds set about doorways. I wrote about twelve pages of notes at the time and added to it at odd moments when things occurred to me – obstacles, dialogue, conflict.
One thing I have learned over the past year, is the part backstory can play in giving my characters reasons to do things or to feel things.
Try music you wouldn’t normally listen to, free writing and dedicated day-dreaming.
And chocolate.
