“Five words?” Jonah scratched the side of his metal face with his metal finger, hasp, hasp, hasp. He paused. “You know I hate that I can’t sigh, or frown, or anything. So, I guess machine would be the first thing to describe me.” Jonah bent his metal head, then shook it. “No. No, it’s not the first thing. The first thing is salvaged. The second is Soul’s Man. Third,” he chuckled, “a fighter.”
Jonah raised his head. “Forth, determined to beat the Clowns, and fifth…” he paused for a long moment, raised his metal hand, bent his segmented metal fingers, “…hopeful.”
I’m most impatient to hear my readers react to the end of Book 2, the introduction of another world, and the salvaging of one particular character.
The relationship is root for most as far as a love relationship goes is probably Sparrow and Royce. I love how he helps her and how her recapture drives him beyond what he thought he could do.
But, I also love Jonah and Adele’s relationship. Their friendship is tried and tested and Jonah manages to hold it together long enough for Adele to start caring about it.
There are lots of relationships in my book and I love each of them. One is especially delightful to me, but SPOILERS.
I love my world because it is a place where children lost through miscarriage and aborted children get to live their stories.
I love this setting because I love winter time. Being able to capture both the horror and beauty of it is a delight. I love the Streets cause they show lawless children. I love Greenhome because there parents with no children get to have a child. I love Metropolis-by-the-sea because it’s got more technology and lawful evil.
I love how I depict characters because I write warrior stories. I love showcasing mighty men in their strength and in their weakness. I love showing the burdens they carry and the cost of their gift. I love showing the courage of the women who stand beside them. These are my favorite things.
I love to describe things when I’m working on setting. I love trees and the winter and nature. Yes. I’m one of those awful writers who spends way to much time and words on descriptions and not enough on characters.
I also enjoy describing combat, even though I think it’s hard to write as well as I would like.
But, writing death scenes is really probably my favorite. I don’t know why killing of my characters is my favorite. But I’m aptly named #iamdeath.
