Good evening! Confession! One of the most difficult character traits for me to create is a deceptive character! This is a true challenge for me in writing. So far, none of my characters have surprised me with this hidden trait. I know that this trait is a treasure to plant inside a character to really turn up the volume in a scene, however, it is a thorn in my writing scope right now. I am at the stage in my writing where I am ready to come face-to-face with this obstacle and defeat it! Here’s a fact that I know to be true – when we push through a challenge – on the other side is growth! With that outcome in mind, I have decided to challenge myself to write a short story – creating one of the characters to be filled with deceit. I will keep you posted on my progress!
