plays well with others
so somehow I am managing to work on my rewrite.I wrote about 1k words yesterday. it feels like pulling teeth. well, at first it did but not so much now. the characters are starting to talk to me again but not quite like they did before. Sidney remains characteristically aloof. it's hard having a character who doesn't like to open up about stuff do just that. he definitely keeps his thoughts and feelings to himself. I am going to have to throw some shit at him to get him to open up. I'm trying to add more interplay with the vampires but my vampires aren't like others. their whole goal(thus far) is blending and surviving. they don't want to stand out so they just keep to themselves like rich recluses. maybe I am going to have to elaborate more on vampires in my world. maybe Marta's end goal is to bring vampires to the open. definitely Sidney is going to have to learn to play nice with the other vampires.
