Let me tell you how the tv show Merlin inspired my current characters for my work in progress werewolf novel During the Blue Hour. I probably talked about this before but my love of Merlin the tv show has spanned many years since the show aired on BBC.
How do you write the important characters and cut out the unnecessary ones in your novel?
I’m sure all writers do this. You read a novel or a watch a show and then while writing, some qualities of who you watched or read spills over into your manuscript. Most writers don’t do this intentionally but are therefore influenced by their favorite characters .
In my work in progress werewolf novel my werewolves are necessarily immortal.
One of the antagonist of the story and a werewolf who has lived for centuries already. She is not a main pov character . Only a supporting character .
Writing about amulets and charms in
the fantasy novel. What do you think of when you hear the word amulet or charm?
I never thought when I started writing my novel that I was going to have a favorite character . It’s hard enough just writing the other characters .
I have just added two more character boards to my Pinterest .These two Pinterest character boards are of the two main antagonist/ villains of the During the Blue Hour novel .
What’s a fantasy novel without humans and human society right?
Classes, races and subgroups is always important when having a fantasy novel . The only one I think who wrote and crafted it well was Tolkien who created many fantasy races such as elves , orcs and hobbits to name a few and within each of those races of fantasy characters there were classes and subgroups.
