Daily Writing Meme: Day Eleven

Who is your favorite character to write? Least favorite?

My favorite is Christopher. My least favorite is either Jesse or Warin, I dislike both of them. Of those two, Warin was difficult to write (his soul is so black), and Jesse was/is easier. Hopefully someday you'll be able to read about Jesse.

Christopher is my favorite because as I've said before, I'm half in love with him. I think sometimes as writers we put all of our most desirable features into the characters we write. Christopher isn't perfect, but that's one of the reasons I love him so much. He can be sensitive (asking Dafydd to a private bonding ceremony before their public handfasting), passionate (their tryst in the hunting lodge), deeply caring (the way he spent so much time worrying and caring for Dafydd during and after the abduction), and he can also be ruthless (banishing Sir Robert and the squires), and petulant (his reaction to having to take Marged into his bed). He can be gentle, and tough at the same time. This is all in addition to being drop-dead gorgeous. :}

Warin was my least favorite because it's hard for me to get into the head of someone who is that depraved. As it was, he didn't come across quite as evil as I would have wanted for that very reason. I need to spend more time studying evil I guess.
