A short day today as Ellie's going to a party so I'm taking her to Cambridge.
I've been working on a new character in DM 3 for most of the morning trying to get him right. Trouble is he's a real bad ass - vicious, cruel and nasty - and it's been difficult getting the correct balance. I want readers to dislike him but I want their revulsion to creep up on them so he can't be bad straight out of the blocks. The trouble is with all the slasher stuff in the movies these days I suspect today's audience is pretty ho-hum to violence, it's immurred to the stuff.
I'm also proofing DM1 (again): I've found a couple more mistakes which is worrying.
