I battled through with the troublesome CHLOE and eeked her for as much as I could in this draft of things. She now looks a little like this:
And now I’m onto a seventeen year old boy, ALEX. In a writing sense of course. He’s spouting a lot of nonsense at the moment but every other line is a keeper and I have a feeling he’s going to be fun to write. He’s a kid with a certain unease with the world and speaks a lot about the observations he’s concocted from the world he was born into. A real throw your fists in the air monologue but he’s a little unhinged which is actually quite fun to write. It’s not didactic at all, it’s merely presenting ideas and letting them dwell. With a little bit of shock in there.
What an auspicious beast he’s turning out to be.
