That’s how I describe my character from a simple idea in yesterday’s post. She came from a joke I made about a mom who sabotages her son. It was a raw idea that marinated overnight.
I figured mom is angry at her husband- who abandoned her after she had their second child, and this son looks exactly like him. She took out her frustrations on him– Inadvertently or not.
Later in life she thinks she loses him, and then feels guilty that she truly messed up his life, and hers. If she got a second chance, she would be a better person and a mother. She gets her chance, and she does as promised.
I like this character more and more. She fits nicely into a story I wrote down and created a mom, but had no clue who she was and what she wanted/needed. She’s only one character, so I have a lot of work to do, For the record there are two siblings, and the dad in the story. Perhaps they will become clearer to me.
That, and I need more off hand jokes to marinate on. LOL
As always, happy creative endeavors.
