I’ve spoken on here before about my long delayed story. I won’t try to work on it until my novel is done…. but since I’m still having trouble with it, I think that I know why:
The story is set during the Civil War in the USA. The major villain is a racist from the South.
I’m having the same kind of problems writing that villain as I did back then: I don’t like to get in his ugly frame of mind.
I know that I don’t think like him, and that as a writer I have to be willing to write ugliness at times. I hope that I can get past this.
