A deceitful action

A group of characters undertook a search in today’s section of writing. Whilst this was ongoing, one of them undertook a deceitful action. However, he didn’t get away with it. I found that this was a good opportunity to develop this particular character yet further, so that the reader could see exactly what his motivations are, and maybe also to give a little more of an indication as to what lies in his salacious past. The scene still centres on the village which I was discussing previously. In writing this, I was able to find that I could add an even greater sense of realism to the plot – to me, this is all important in constructing a novel in this particular genre. My experience of human nature (and, believe me, I’m not trying to denigrate my fellow species) is that they can be deceitful and underhanded, and I hope this has been drawn out well in this particular scene. Now, as I have come to the conclusion of this section of the novel, I’m quite satisfied with its progress. It’s certainly developed further beyond how I originally planned it. I feel even more excited now – at last I’m getting somewhere!


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.
