I’ve been having a really hard time working on one of my characters in The Victor’s Blade. Much of her purpose has been changed, and she’s never been one of my favorite characters, although I wanted her to be one that the readers cared about deeply.
One of the biggest questions for me is “Do I still need her?” Can the plot work without her?
And one of the biggest problems with this character is that she acts way too much like Emarella. I can’t have carbon-copy personalities.
From one writer to another, anybody got any tips on how to get some good inspiration for tweaking a character?
