Life, On Writing

Heroines and Piano Pieces

At the moment, I’m busily tapping away at the sequel to The Dragons We Hunt. This story has a different tone to the first book – more characters, fewer dragons, a little more dangerous, certainly harder to write. The heroine is unlike the one in TDWH – she’s more optimistic, hopeful, almost naive.

People are interesting. I like to know what makes them them. Why are they like this or that? How were they sculpted into who they are?

Sometimes I find a song or piece of music which simply seems to fit a character. Compare the two pieces – that of Kyssa, Heroine the First:

… to that of Nefna, Heroine the Second:

How different they both are, and what stories there are to be found in them.

Have a great weekend!
