I managed to write over 2,000 words this week, but somehow haven’t managed them in a single chapter. I accidentally introduced four new characters, which was handy because I’ve killed some off, and I needed some more. But I hadn’t planned on so many.
This requires a bit more thinking about what their character traits are. What do they look like? What are their flaws? Strengths? They do need to be a bit nasty, as I am going to be using them for a bullying scene.
If you have any stories about bullying that you’re happy to share with me, I’d appreciate it.

A fantasy fan since being read 'The Hobbit' by her father at the fireside at the age of six, she has been an avid bookworm her entire life. When the idea for her current trilogy popped into her head, there was never any doubt that it would be in the fantasy genre. Unfortunately, real life gets in the way, and writing has to fit around her full-time job at a global engineering consultancy and family life (husband and two young adult children). It took ten years to pen her first book, Medar, which was a finalist for the Tom Fitzgibbon Award in 2015 and was published in 2017. Her second book, Tyrelia was nominated in the Young Adult Fiction category in the 2019 Sir Julius Vogel Awards. Her third book, Golden City, is due out in 2021.
