IWSG: March 2019

It’s time again for the Insecure Writer’s Support Group! Posts go up the first Wednesday of each month. Read more posts and/or join in here.

What am I insecure about these days? Well, I have surgery tomorrow, though I feel oddly calm about it. I think I’m more stressed about our move, which will take place the first week of April. In the meantime, very little writing is getting done, so I’m insecure about that, too—I feel like I’m falling behind on my goals.

Question of the Month: Whose perspective do you like to write from best, the hero (protagonist) or the villain (antagonist)? And why?

I guess I’ve always written from the protagonist’s point of view, though I’m sure it would be fun to write from the villain’s. But I think I stick with the protagonist because to get inside the villain’s head would be to give too much away. I want the reader to wonder, along with the protagonist, what that villain is up to…

  • I definitely agree keeping the reader wondering is the best. Good luck tomorrow and with the move coming up. Hopefully everything will get settled in quickly and you’ll get back into a routine.

  • I can see how the surgery could take your mind away from writing, or reading, or most of anything that goes on in life. And to think that you have the move to worry about too. My intestines would be in knots by now. Good luck with the surgery today.
