Life Among the Never-Winged

Once upon a time I was writing a book called, "Just Another Love Letter", about angels behaving badly. Now I just quietly ask myself each day, "What the hell am I doing?"

My friends always knew I was going to hell. My only hope is that God likes good jokes and bad redheads.

    Picture him or her in their underwear? Frame them for a crime? Write them into a scandalous underground porno tape filmed in infra-red night vision?

    You need to give them some pathetic weakness. Something childish if they think themselves an adult. Girlish if they think themselves manly.

    Like bedwetting ot fear of spiders.

    Or the sight of a spider causes them to wet the bed or pee their pants.
    The pants wetting gives them away when they were hiding in the warehouse about to attack someone.

    Put them in a situation from which there is no escape.

    I agree with Bud. Plot their demise!

    Pat yourself on your back.
    Your writing has taken on a life of its own.

    I LOVE these! Keep 'em coming! (Especially since no one knows about this character)

    Bud -- The character already has a death wish; that's part of the scary part.

    Stucco -- This character is above shame. And everything else.

    Rudi -- You're right, and I actually discovered this character's weakness last night after posting and pondering.

    Clowncar -- You're the voice of wisdom and reason, as always. :-)

    Meno -- this character's already trying to assure that situation happens.

    DMG -- Ooohhh, that a BAD thing! (wait til you find out who it is.) :-)

    Amusing -- Hee hee hee, I hope so! It makes life so much easier.

    NWO -- Thanks for stopping by! I love the goose. Imagine a fish tickling the water...

    write it into a circular argument and then run away...

    Above shame? Is it me? You could write in an I.R.S. audit. No one is above their taxes...

    You go with it. The character will tell you where he/she needs to go.

    I need more backround about how the character scares you before I can comment. What is he/she doing that scares you?

    Have them found stabbed to death in a room with no weapon and no way in or out, where all the windows face South...isn't that how it goes? Either that or have Locke show up at the last minute with a stick of very suspect dynamite.

    Perhaps you could have an inferior character humiliate him or her in an uncharacteristic moment of enlightenment. In other words create a brief distraction to expose a character weakness so you can complete the story feeling superior.

    There's no where to run, Scott... :-)

    lol...no, it's not about you, Stucco. No waxed paper in this one. ;-)

    And that's EXACTLY what's happening, Lucia.

    Background provided last night, Schmoop. What do you think, now that you know?

    lol, Ir. Locke would actually have a good time with this character.

    Now that is brilliant, Patches. I'll have to work on it. :-)

    Now that I know, I am surprised. When someone you trust takes a scary turn, it is very disturbing. I trust you, so I know it will be great. (Unless you take a frightening turn as well!! ;)

    You try and feed him to the pigs, but then he escapes and kills his captors, and then he captures the FBI chick and steals her away, because he loves her.
