The Discover Challenge is Designed for You
Do you ever feel like you are Dr Frank-N-Furter from ‘The Rocky Horror Picture show’?
I’ve been making a man,
With blonde hair and a tan
Or black hair, or brown hair, or a woman. You know, whatever you need.
Need a villain? Write one? A mentor? He shall be wise!
Each character that I write, is designed very explicitly for me. To do exactly what I want them to. Right?
It does make me wonder, on those days that some of those characters are not doing what I want (in fact they have very strong opinions about what they will or wont do), why I designed them that way? Was I particularly annoyed at myself when I said, ‘I know! Let’s make him strong and opinionated and arrogant and stubborn … that will be fun!’?
“Yeah, what were you thinking?” Alex says with a snort.
