Death and recrimination

Only a brief entry tonight (I’ve got to be in work early tomorrow!) I’m still working through the battle scene, where there is a moment of realisation for the main character when he is confronted by his conscience as a result of his insensitive behaviour towards a subordinate. The subordinate soldier, who is paralysed into inaction as a result of the stress of battle, dies after the main character forces him into the fray. The immediate reaction on the part of the main character is both shock and guilt – followed by anger, both at himself and the situation he has found himself in. This should provide a good basis for further developing his actions and emotional responses as this chapter progresses.

Until the next entry….


About Owen Law

My pen-name is ‘Owen Law’ (real name: Nicholas Davies.) I’m a science fiction writer specialising in dystopian/apocalyptic visions of the future. I’m from Shropshire, England (on the borders with Wales) and I’m in my forties. I have a background in public services and training. I’ve been working on my first novel, Dragon Line, since 2008. I’ve also written several short stories, one of which you can find on this blog (‘Matilda Leviathan‘). I now reside on the border of Shropshire and Wales, and my interests include writing (of course!), current affairs and environmental issues.
