One-Liner Wednesday — Characters say the darndest things.


My one-liner today is two sentences instead of one (sorry!), and leapt out at me from my Timehop yesterday in a brief post I’d blogged 4 years ago!

Here is the post.

Only another writer will get this: Was blazing through a chapter today when my main character abruptly told me he didn’t like the villain. I was like, DUH, your point? And he said,

“No, I don’t like him because he’s extraneous to the plot. Your other Bad Guy can torture me the same way, probably better.”

I stopped writing and peered down at the Delete button. Don’t you hate it when they’re right? LOL!


He was right. I can’t even remember the dude I cut. 🙂
