The Dark Side

It surprises me what ends up on the page when I start writing.  Sometimes I have a specific idea in mind and other times I don’t.  The cursor takes over.  I’m just along for the ride.

The feeling is intoxicating and exhilarating.  When things are flowing, it’s just magic.  It’s a high like no other.

I’ve written a few things lately that I would call dark.  There are times when I look back over the page and am shocked at how dark it becomes.

My WIP has morphed into something much darker than what it started out.  But it’s good!  (evil grin as I rub my hands together) 

Apparently, I have a Dark Side.  But it’s Fun being the Bad guy!

How do you feel about your Dark characters?

  1. I haven’t written any dark characters yet. I do have a few who are not nice, but I wouldn’t call them dark.

  2. I haven’t written a lot of dark characters into my fiction. But when I do, I understand why I did so.
