First let's talk about the words. Over 60,000 words...there...done. Ok, that was easy!
Case in point: Sara. One of 4 characters in the book. And really one of the top two! She is more of an antagonist in that she influences the way the narrator thinks and acts. She was the reason he got hooked on the dragon eggs, gave up his job, sold his body, and began working for the dragons. He ( the narrator) did it all for her. And since love is blind...(and a drug induced love is addictive, blind and DEAF!)....It makes sense that she is the major motivation for the narrator to continue to make bad decisions.
Cheryl has been waiting forever for me to kill her off. I guess bad women make good women hate them. If this is the case, and the readers hate her; then I will have done my job. I love movies where someone gets killed and the crowd CHEERS! No one should cheer at another's misfortune...unless they deserve it.
So there it is.....Sara is dead. Bye Sara! Sayonara! ( That is Japanese for "good bye forever!" Which apparently spell check does not know) I liked Sara. She was the culmination of ever bad girlfriend I have ever had. (Which is really only one. I was never the ladies man my brother is.) And a whole bunch of other people I have read about or watched on TV. She was very handy to have around whenever the narrator was about to make a "good" decision.
|Perspective is everything!|
This must be what Cheryl feels when she runs a 14 mile long run. A feeling of accomplishment. I wrote a little over 1700 words today and I'm still feeling the buzz! Time to unwind and maybe veg out a bit.
