THE EXCITING JOURNEY OF Writing
a Fictional Book
"IT'S A LUXuRY BEING A WRITER, BECAUSE ALL YOU EVER THINK ABOUT IS LIFE."
Developing someone as evil as Hank Calner evolved as I wrote the story. He is an evil person without a conscious. He moves boldly in the daylight with little or no fear of being caught.
HANK CALNER CHARACTER DEV. SHEET
My sheets break my character down. Who is he or she?
WHAT DO THEY LOOK LIKE
Hank is an large man in his early 40's.
Easily talks to people, especially children. He knows how to lure them in. They trust him.
He cannot control his anger, is overconfident, obsessive, sociopath.
Personally I found nothing in Hank's mind positive. He's a killer so I added to his negative emotional attitudes.
He is extremely violent.
Hatred of young boys who appear happy
Lacks remorse and emotionally disconnected
I have other headings for GOALS, MOTIVATIONS, WOUNDS, AND NOTES.
Hank the antagonist and George the protagonist have something in common. They are both loners, comfortable with themselves. However, it stops there. Hank is a killer.
As the story developed so did Hank. THE CAT THAT BECAME THE MOUSE takes place in Los Angeles during the 1960's. However, I go back briefly to Hank's early childhood. Another time when he lived in Africa.
Hank has difficulty with the fact that George survived the attack. Both antagonist and protagonist are tormented for completely different reasons.
