don't be a just an arrogant prick... be a kinder gentler arrogant prick
ahhh yeah... I just love this pic. any one who can smile like that can pretty much get whatever he wants. that's confidence. it's a look that just lets you know that he is completely in charge. I try and infuse what that look means in my mc, Eamon. now, while he can generate a look like that I want him to have weaknesses, even if he is a vampire. I think it makes him more likable and more dimensional. I'm channeling Elana Johnson's post on her blog this am. if he was all this look(and I'm not saying that's a bad thing) he'd be a very flat character and not very interesting at all. you'd throw the book down and never read it again.
speaking of awesome posts... Stacey Kennedy is having a cool contest on facebook. check it out http://www.facebook.com/home.php?#!/notes/stacey-kennedy/contest-get-your-name-in-the-new-series-special-agent-fang/117087894980979
