11. Who is your favorite character to write? Least favorite?
These questions are almost impossible to answer!
Presently, I would have to choose my mysterious witch, Beth. The dark sphinx. She was one of those characters who I knew inside and out from the very beginning, and our relationship only deepened through various drafts. But I also had found such joy in writing of the exploits of Mr. Raferat and Mrs. Brent. Most of all the sardonic banter between the two.
I don’t have a least favorite character. All characters are in a story for a reason. There are some that are certainly more challenging because they reveal themselves slowly, displaying more aspects of their personality through each draft. But if they didn’t belong, I’d cut them out and wait for their correct story to come along.
How about you?
