Sir John Gilbert. It embodied the atmosphere of last week's chapter quite well. Though it may seem like the climax chapter from this painting, it is actually the chapter before the climax. My characters must face what they fear and want most and they'll never be the same. As you might imagine, it was a tough chapter to write because it was so visceral.
I finished The Iron Witch and loved it! It more than passed the test, I will absolutely be buying the sequel! Author Karen Mahoney has made me a fan with that novel. The Clearing by Anne Riley arrived just in time for me to start a new book and wow am I glad it did. So far I am loving this book! I'll let you know how things progress with it. If you want to learn more about it just click on the picture of the cover to the right.
With all the tension and battles I've been writing about lately the only appropriate music seems to be Iron Maiden. No Prayer For The Dying is the song that sticks out most in my mind when I think about last week's chapter.
Do you make your characters face their worst fears and desires? Does it always turn out the way you thought it would when you do? What inspired you last week?
