Take the People You Hate and Turn Them Into Hero’s

I am trying to write a fiction novel centralized around a young girl who learns a lot about life from a grungy, 27 year old that manages a local coffee shop. I currently have a little over 4,000 words written, and like what I see. My protagonist is a sassy, teenage girl trying to figure out what she is going to do after graduation. Her best friend is a beautiful, intelligent, type A personality that is absolutely wonderful. She can be arrogant and cocky, but at the end of the day she has a heart of gold. 

I think writing is therapeutic and I am sure many writers use their craft to secretly get revenge on those that did them wrong. I am odd, and take people I hate and turn them into hero’s. The hero in my book is based off someone I actually hate. He is a loser, with a shitty personality and looks like he is in his 40’s when he is in his 20’s. I think it’s important for us to forgive these types of people, and let go of getting revenge on them, it puts you at peace to take negative people and turn them into positive characters.

Victims

“When someone is mean to me I just make them a victim in my next book- Mary Higgins Clark

I am over 9,000 words in now, and unfortunately experiencing writers block, therefore I wish to express my thoughts through this blog. I feel like writing about random topics helps provoke my thoughts. I found the quote above, and thought it was quite interesting, because originally I wanted to get back at people that did me wrong and make them victims in my story, however now I have come to conclusion that I want to vilify them and than redeem them. I think people that are assholes are that way because somewhere along the line they were victimized. I also believe that I was just a punching bag for these idiots, in no way shape or form does it excuse their lack of compassion, and rude behavior but you know what we are all people. We all bleed blood, and cry tears. That is one point I hope people to will see in my story, its important to forgive people because if you dont they had the last laugh, and what fun is that? 

7,000 Words In.

When I was a child, I wanted to be a writer. I remember the first sentence I ever learned was See Me. Writing was a way for me to express myself, and with a pencil, and a piece of lined paper I could create anything I wanted. I am writing my first Young Adult fiction book. I am a published writer, I contributed articles to ScreenPicks.com, Food World News, and frequently write reviews for Hollywood Junket. I enjoy writing Entertainment articles, and expressing my thoughts on television shows, I love to critique and put my two sense into everything, however creative writing is my passion. The characters I am creating with the first draft of this book are marvelous. One of them in particular is what I wish I could have been at 16 years old. She is witty, beautiful, intelligent, and not afraid to voice her opinion. The asshole in my story will fall madly in love with her, so cliche, I know but every book needs some romance. My book will incorporate romance into the story plot, however there will also be complex concepts. My book’s main point is to be forgiving, so many of my characters will suffer, but forgiveness allows them to heal, one particular character will never heal and she will do something tragic in the end of the story, one must remember an eye for an eye only leaves the whole world blind-Gandhi

Writing is therapeutic, it allows me to get some sort of revenge on people that scarred me. I know that is immature, but whatever there is one particular person I will HATE until I die. I wish I could go back in time, and stand up to him, I wish I could run into him now, and break his nose. He is a complete piece of shit, and I hope his life sucks now, for he will have one hell of a horrible life in my book. I have not written a character for this asshole yet, I thought about killing him in my story, but that is stupid, I would much rather destroy his life. I still cant believe I sat there frozen like an ice cube, and allowed him to talk down to me like the way he did, what the hell was I thinking? Oh how I resent some parts about my teenage years, I have no idea what happened in real life to this prick, however I would imagine him getting really fat, with a shitty job, and a dog that does not like him. I have this vision of me being stopped at a redlight looking like dynamite in a brand new Lexus, and looking over to see him in some old beat up truck with a cigarette in his hand, and tears in his eyes, I would totally look over, smile and than roll my eyes at him, and speed off. SCREW HIM!!!

There will also be other characters inspired by wonderful people I have met. People I admire, strong people, that have not had it easy. I absolutely LOVEEEEE people that came from rough childhoods, I feel so much sympathy for these people, and think they are so fucking amazing. Right now my story is alittle over 7,000 words..
