The Creation of Bring Me To Live
Guest Post by Nicole Thorn
It was challenging, trying to be in the heads of these two characters in particular. Ezra far more than Anastasia. He had so much grief that I was worried I wouldn’t be able to keep a hold on how he should be, and the arc his character went through. Making a serial killer lovable was about as hard as I thought it would be. Anastasia was far easier. She was snarky and apathetic. Thankfully, I am both of those things. So I had somewhere to draw from. All I had to do was start typing and the story felt like it was writing itself. It helped that I never seemed to know how a conversation was going to end between the two of them. They had a very thin line between love and hate.
The factor that really chose the tone were those characters. They had strong enough personalities that when they were dropped in a scene, they tended to push where it needed to go. Even when it was the opposite of my plan. Or if it undid things to come. I had to work around them. Much like spoiled children, really. I appeased them. My hopes are that it continues throughout the rest of the series, because I think the characters always know much better than I do when it comes to their actions and story.
Throughout the entire time I was writing the story, I depended heavily on my friend and occasional writing partner. She would tell me what was good and what I needed to pull back on. She helped with the construction of Ezra and who he was supposed to be. Without her, this wouldn’t be the book I love. The book that I hope a lot of people love like I do.
