Random Monday Writing Thinks

One of the interesting joys of the current story-series is that I’m NOT writing a broken or restricted character – I’m writing a character who has gotten his shit together & is taking on a new, out-of-comfort-zone challenge because he chooses to.

Because the story doesn’t end when the broken bits of a POV character are repaired or justified.  Interesting stuff happens after, too. And we don’t have to break them a second or third time to make it interesting.

Kintsugi is about the repaired form as a whole, not just the golden seams.

This post possibly brought to you by reading too damn many “hero/ine is broken in order to BE the hero/ine” story.  Which are good and necessary stories, but not the only ones we should be telling.
