My Dark Characters

CREATING THE MOOD FOR DARK CHARACTERS





Is sometimes difficult when your mind isn't 'dark'.

So sometimes setting the MOOD
with 
Music is a good start.

GANGSTA from SUICIDE SQUAD
and HEATHENs
Helped me this version

Wha
What do you use to deal with DARK MOODS
DARK CHARACTERS
DARK...places?

I actually was having trouble with this recently. One character has been the subject of innumerable abuses and is a product of her circumstances. I love writing her, but I hate writing her too because she is such a tortured soul who has never healed and lashes out at others. In homicidal ways. I've decided to avoid her for now, until I'm in the mood to write from her perspective. I'm sure it will come.

I agree with you that music can definitely help put me in the mood to write certain characters. :)

How do you avoid writing a character? Are you focusing on others?

I'm writing other works right now. She's got her own story, and I'll work on it one day, when I'm in a raging kind of mood. ;)
