Or, rather, how does one show a softer side of a character meant to be bad-A without making him lose his bad-A-ness?
Answer: I’ll tell you when I figure it out. :O *
I think I can do this, but I’ll have to wait and see. I tend to give myself a lot of new, difficult challenges when writing new stories. Do I do this on purpose? I don’t think so. Is it bad? Surely not, unless I continually fail over and over again. But easy stories are boring and get passed up by reader and editor alike. Who wants to write a boring story?
But is it better to write a decent story airing on the side of boring, or a challenging story airing on the side of this-doesn’t-quite-work?

Comments appreciated. :D
Excerpt of the day:
Dark colored blurred past him as he warped, and he found himself in a tiny cluster of trees at the corner of the mosaic wall, near the end of Miatowene’s dress.
“You are one freaky son of a moll, you know that?” Singe said, only ten feet away. He leaned against the mosaic, sword still hanging on his side, the shadow of his hook-topped staff looming behind him.

*Step 1: Must reread character sheet over and over and solidify character more firmly in brain.
