Avriet Work

Writing: I worked on character profiles for Avriet last night. I wanted to make sure that I have a clear understanding of each character's personality and motivations before I proceed further with this book. Their personality flaws are of primary importance to the story, so I need to make sure I'm rock-solid on those.

I'm also questioning all of my plot points, to make sure that everything I've included is necessary. I'm working out what function each character plays in the book, and if I can't think what the character's function is, I take that character out. At the moment, I'm giving a hard look at Eliset and asking myself if she serves a function other than being a female character to balance the male ones.

Work: I came in early to get some backlog done--the backlog of intakes is almost completed. Hurray! Now I just have to work on the filing.
I'm the DOG!

Writing and Fandom

Writing: I found my copy of the Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook and have begun reading it. I'm considering being dork enough to do some of the exercises here in my journal.

Fandom: I am back in the USS Charleston. *beams* It's so good to be back!
