Are You Looking for a Challenge: 28 Days of Character Development

Last year at this time I suggested a 28 day character development challenge, developed from similar exercises I had seen going around sites like Tumblr and deviantArt.  I focused the exercises on my Skyrim story’s protagonist, Elspeth Sigeweald.  It was a lot of fun and really helped me get to know the character better.  This year I am doing it again and using another original character from that story.

Welcome to Davenport Perissology

I started this blog because while I have always written things, it has only been in the last couple of years that I have become comfortable sharing what I’ve written.  That and in the last several months, my occasional writing hobby has sort of exploded and I wanted a place apart from my fan fiction blog, Skyrim: Epic Disasters and other Tales, to collect and share the things I’ve written.  This is not really a story blog, however, it’s a hobby blog.  And it is still very much a work-in-progress.  More than the stories themselves, I am far more interested in the process of storytelling, character development, and world building.  Other things I will be writing about include literature, popular culture, and food.
