I am an actor on paper, a prism through which the light may be bent.
- Kate Thornton
Kate Thornton is my friend and a fellow writer. She writes a great blog entitled It Doesn't Take a Genius. The past couple of her blog entries have been about writing with an emphasis on characters. Both are well worth a read, especially the blog entry entitled Are You A Monster? about whether or not writing about monsters, such as serial killers and sociopaths, is harmful to the writer.
